#2 of 13 in Beaches in Cancun
Immerse yourself in the busy beach at Playa Tortugas, a sandy strip lined with cafes, restaurants, and bars. Relax with the lively crowds, renting an umbrella and deck chair to cool down after a roast in the sun. Take a swim or try out something more adventurous, such as jet skiing, with a wealth of rental stores located along the beach. When the mood strikes you, wander over to one of the lively beach bars to listen to dance music and enjoy an ice cold beverage.

  • These are not the Caribbean, the sea isn't that great, very dirty water, woe to go there on Sunday seems to be in a mental hospital full of dirt and smells of Mexican cuisine.

  • Small beach, her leave pretty boats and excursions at sea as the boats that lead to parasailing, stopped her after our trip just to meet and take pictures, it was worth it, but the beach is small, has a small band of sand and many stones but it's worth knowing and take many pictures the scenery there is beautiful too

  • Great place to spend your day at the beach! Located on the calm side of the ocean... (cancun hotel zone have 2 sides, a very rough waves ocean side..locals call it mar abierto and a very calm area at the entrance of the hotel zone)
  • Super small and the swimming area is small too. They have a small playground there at least but I thought by the reviews this would be better. Wouldn’t come here again. Dirty.
  • Quaint beach that one can walk to in about 30 minutes if you don't want to take one of the buses or taxis.
  • Very family friendly. This is where the locals come. Not a tourist trap. Many small bars and mini markets at the local price.
  • Too much people leaving lots of garbage around
