We visit this beach and it’s quiet still waters to swim to Isla Mujeres - as a part of El Cruce. Beaches on the Lower side of the hotel zone have more waves and currents that can be worrisome for parents.

A small, yet great beach on north end of zona hotelera. Clean, and never a lot of people on the beach either. Not as big as Delfines Beach, but just as nice. Cheap to rent beach chairs also. Also close to shops & clubs.

We think it is the most beautiful beach in Cancún. The water is nice and the sand is without small stones and seaweed.

Small beach but close to the OXXO for beer etc. Near a Super Chedraui too. Water is warm and clean. There are beach chairs to rent ($15 for 2?). Delfines Beach is MUCH better but shop ahead.
