Cancun Beaches

Known as a tropical paradise, Cancun is not just famous for its nightlife; it is also the ultimate beach holiday destination. With 14 miles of picturesque sand, glorious sunshine and hot temperatures during the day, what better way to relax and unwind than spending the day on the beach? Let’s face it; at Feel Summer, we also know you may need this time to recover from the night before if you are feeling ‘under the weather!’

The Hotel Zone boasts stretches of golden sand and blue sea, which means you won’t have to travel too far work on your summer holiday glow. Check out our Cancun beach reviews to find the perfect beach for sun, sea and sand.

Playa Forum

When you are imagining the perfect beach, then you are thinking about Playa Forum! This stunning beach is popular and enjoys a great location in the heart of the Hotel Zone, which makes it lively and fun during the day. You can expect white sand and limitless blue sea; just what you would expect from Cancun. You can sit back, relax and enjoy the view, whilst working on your tan and there are restaurants and entertainment nearby. Located behind Coco Bongo means there are also bars only a few steps away, so you sip on a frozen margarita in the sun. In addition, this is near to where you will find the vibrant and much-loved Mandala Beach Club. If you love a beach retreat, then Playa Forum is the one for you.

Playa Chac Mool

Situated right next to Playa Forum, Playa Chac Mool boasts beautiful white sand and blue sea for a casual day at the beach. You will find that most crowds gather in Playa Forum, leaving this location a little less congested during the day. Although there are no sun loungers or umbrellas available, you can bring your beach towel and make your own place to relax under the Cancun sun. There are facilities and public amenities nearby and as Playa Chac Mool is located in the Hotel Zone, you can grab drinks and food and bring it to the beach. If you are feeling adventurous, there are also water sports available to make the most of your holiday.

Playa Tortugas

Another choice of beach for holidaymakers staying in the Hotel Zone is Playa Tortugas. This is a popular beach for all ages during the summer and can be especially busy on the weekends. As well as the beautiful white sand of Cancun, you can also enjoy one of the few beaches to have no waves. There are seafood restaurants nearby, including an oceanfront restaurant with amazing views. If you are feeling like you want to be spontaneous and have a laugh with friends, we dare you to try the bungee tower over the water!

Playa Delfines

Playa Delfines or Dolphin Beach is one of Cancun’s largest beaches and a popular place for holidaymakers to relax during the day. There are no noisy hotels nearby, which makes this beach retreat peaceful when you have had a wild one out on the town the night before. This is also where you will find the famous Cancun sign; perfect for getting your new profile picture for social media! The bright blue water and white sand is stunning, though the waves can get big during the day. You will even be able to spot some parasailing and jet skiers out on the water. With food and drink vendors on the beach, as well as chairs and umbrellas to rent, you can make a day of it and work on your tan down on Playa Delfines.
