Playa Delfines

Of course, since The Royal Islander was built directly on Playa Delfines, laying out in the sun is one of the main attractions at this property. Rough waves make swimming and some watersports too dangerous in this region, but there are still a number of beachside activities at the Playa Delfines for vacationers to enjoy. These rarely frequented sands are a great place for a game of beach volleyball or football. For guests who want to venture farther away, its not difficult to find another beach to experience.
