1. Playa Delfines

Known for its bright white sand and stunningly blue water, Playa Delfines is the top public beach to visit in Cancun. The largest in Cancun, this beach boasts miles and miles of uninterrupted coastline views. Unlike other beaches, Playa Delfines is free of hotels, restaurants, and other structures that may get in the way of its picturesque scenery. 

Although this beach is free of those structures, it’s not lacking in amenities for beach-goers. There are well-maintained bathrooms on-site, as well as food available from local vendors. If you don’t want to lug your beach equipment around, you can rent beach chairs and umbrellas for the day. 

2. Playa Norte

If you’re looking for a beautiful public beach with many activities and attractions, then Playa Norte is the place for you! This beach is located in Isla Mujeres and has beautiful white sand, clear waters, and lines of palm trees. Playa Norte is located right next to a five-star resort that offers vacationers the comfort of lodging and relaxation, all at one location. 

If you’re looking for activities to do while at the beach, you can book a yacht, snorkel, scuba dive, or take a ferry to go and explore. In addition to these activities, you’ll have a variety of beach-side bars and restaurants nearby to choose from.

3. Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve

Located just south of Tulum is the beautiful and pristine Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve. This beach is perfect for anyone wanting to enjoy wildlife, along with stunning coastline views. Home to over 300 species of birds, 400 species of fish, 100 mammals, and 40 amphibians, Sian Ka’an is sure to impress. 

The best way to enjoy the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve is through a community tour. Those on the tour can visit archeological sites, hike through the jungle trails, kayak, and even enjoy reef snorkeling with the local wildlife. 

4. Costa Mujeres

For a more private and luxurious experience, you can enjoy the gated community of Costa Mujeres. This beach is near several all-inclusive resorts as well as amazing restaurants, golf, and natural landmarks. 

Because this beach is private, you’ll enjoy a pristine and secluded environment that is perfect for a relaxing vacation. Vacationers can enjoy several amenities, such as spas, pools, waterparks, and hammocks. If you’re feeling more adventurous, you can go kitesurfing, snorkeling, or tour Mayan archeological sites. 

5. Playa Xpu-Ha

Enjoy a quiet and private day at the beach when you visit Playa Xpu-Ha. This beach requires a small entrance fee for visitors and in return offers the seclusion many vacationers crave.

This quiet beach is the perfect location to relax with a book or enjoy some afternoon yoga. You’ll still have access to plenty of beach-side restaurants and can even enjoy live music if you visit on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon.
