The beaches of Puerto Morelos are a sight to behold.  As you sit on the soft, golden sands you'll look out and see clear waters dotted by colorful fishing boats.  What you don't see under the water off in the distance is coral reef to be explored by snorkel.  Back on land, the shores are rarely littered by natural debris like rocks, and you can rent beach chairs and umbrellas from local establishments that are within walking distance to complete your beach-going experience.  

Which Beaches Are Available?

You will find a large selection of beaches to consider visiting in and around the area. Snorkeling is available at some locations, if some members of your party enjoy the underwater scene. Just click on the name of the beach for detailed information about that beach.

Playa Secreto

Playa Secreto: Playa Secreto is located 20 minutes from the Cancun Airport, off Carretera Federal 307.

A second location for beach-goers to consider is Punta Nizuc. Punta Nizuc is slightly rocky, but still covered in a blend of white and tan colored sand. The waters are shallow and warm, and known for their marine life and underwater habitat.

Playa Delfines: As Boulevard Kukulcán curved into a hill at Km 18 near Ruinas del Rey is where you will find Playa Delfines.

Take some time to look through the following table for more information.
