What's Located Around Royal Sands

Quite a few travelers plan to vacation in Mexico because of the fabulous beaches that the region is famous for. If you or your group are big beach fans, Royal Sands is just what you are looking for. This property is situated along the water, so tourists can spend all day every day under the sun if that is what they want to do. The beach on this property boasts a great amount of harmony when it comes to population; it's not very far away from the landmarks in Cancun, and still nurtures a feeling that isn't overtly over-populated.

Nearby Beaches

Playa Marlin

Naturally, since Royal Sands is positioned directly on Playa Marlin, laying out in the sun is popular with guests staying 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 those who want some variety, its not difficult to find another beach to experience. Click on the names below to view our detailed article:
