Nearby Beaches

Playa Marlin

Needless to say, since Aloft Cancun is located directly on Playa Marlin, spending time at the shore is one of the main attractions here. Because the waters around the Playa Marlin beach tend to be rough, swimming can be difficult and even dangerous off these shores. But the same conditions that make it dangerous for swimmers make it ideal for watersports, particulary sail boarding and parasailing. For travelers who want to venture farther away, its not difficult to find another beach to experience. Click on the following names to see more details:
