Great place to take a pictures with the Cancun sign, easy access by buss for around one dollar or 20 pesos.

Very busy, especially with the locals. This seemed to be the case on most days. We did see the turtle egg conservation areas here though, which was lovely! Lots of eggs in the sand waiting to hatch & go in the ocean. Carole : )

Really enjoyable, 50 pesos will get you a lounge chair. 140 pesos for a large pina colada brought to your chair. Toilets are clean and are upkept by leaving a tip as well as some money for toilet paper.

We love seeing this Cancun sign, but if it is not convenient for you to get here, there is the exact same one at the other end of the hotel zone, km 3.2, where our Catamaran boat tour was leaving from. And like this one,...More

It is one of the best beaches to visit, I spend a relax day, the water color is incredible. There aren’t restaurants but some people sell water and food.

although we only stopped here briefly on our turibus around Cancun, 10 minutes to be precise. But I'd definitely have loved to have spent some more time here as it looked like the stuff that dreams are made of.

We have been on few beaches in Cancun, but Playa Delfines is the most beatiful place. Clear light blue water. Wind.. waves.. FREE umbrellas. Recommend to everyone. With no doubt.

I was here back in 2016 and I will be heading back for a stopover at the end of the month, while travelling for my 30th. This beach has a lot of offer with F&B and not too overpriced. I would recommend in coming here,...More

This is where the Cancun sign is. There are bars, massages, lifeguards, washrooms etc. The swimming here is good, but waves are heavy for poor swimmers

This is a great beach! Lots of space. Food vendors and public facilities. Long wait for the Cancun sign.

it's very closed. The Dolphin beach is into the hotel zone to 15 min of airport. I recommend "Isla Mujeres" that is in front to Cancun.

It's a very nice place to swim. Most locals and lots of out of towners go there because of the great beach. Many of the locals selling trinkets and jet ski type of activities. BUT! To answer if it's safe, I would say yes, if... More

Yes, like the previous answers. It's a public bathroom like we have in the states. Think about going to a public park at home and wanting to use that bathroom to freshen up in. The floors get grungy at the end of the day, no... More
