What's Near Sun Palace

Many times, choosing a hotel near the beach can make your trip even more exciting. If you are a big beach fan, Sun Palace is the perfect locale for you. This property is located on the shore, so vacationers can spend their whole trip soaking up the sun if that is what they want to do. The beach on-site is a busy attraction, so it is great for beach-goers who prefer to be in the middle of a crowd.

Nearby Beaches

Obviously, since Sun Palace sits directly on Punta Nizuc, relaxing at the water's edge is a popular pastime here. Punta Nizuc is perhaps the least popular of all the beaches in Cancun, but vacationers who don't know better and overlook this beach are missing out. The underwater view is one of the best in the area, so snorkeling and diving is a favorite pastime. For guests who want to venture farther away, its not difficult to find another beach to experience.
