What's Near Sun Palace

Quite a few visitors choose to vacation in Mexico because of the amazing beaches that the area is famous for.

Many guests are excited to learn that this property is located directly on the water, so you won't need to go out of your way to enjoy the pleasant coast. Several guests every year enjoy this popular section of Cancun, setting up an undoubtedly fun social scene; keep in mind, though, it is known to get over-crowded sometimes.

Nearby Beaches

Obviously, since Sun Palace was built directly on Punta Nizuc, hanging out at the beach is a popular pastime at this property. 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 vacationers who are willing to venture off site, there are some additional beaches worth investigating. Click the name of each one in the table to learn more:
