Apparently, the last hurricane took sand from elsewhere and deposited it here. There's plenty of room for all here. This Lobster Beach has white powdery sand, crystal clear turquoise water and refreshing breezes. Vendors hawk coconuts, mangoes and snacks, impressively balancing their wares on their...More

Lots of locals but also many choices for restaurants, chairs and parasol available. Waters calm. Not a very big beach.

We spent a day here after researching how to get a sun bed in Cancun if you weren't staying on the beach. The little beach, next to Hotel Casa Maya, has sun beds, chairs, tables and umbrellas to hire. Although there is no shop or...More

The area of the beach we hung out in was very shallow. We could see the fish without having to wear goggles. We went early in the morning so it wasn't crowded at that time. They do have shower and rinsing facilities. There's a playground...More
