Quite often, visitors have decided to spend their holidays in Mexico just for the amazing beaches that the region is so well known for.
Luckily, The Royal Islander is located right on the water and sand, so you won't have to go out of the way to try a few beach activities.

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.
