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.  

The Area's Beaches

You will discover several beaches to consider in and around the area. Snorkeling is an option at some of the beaches, if some members of your party are so inclined. For a detailed article concerning any specific beach simply click on the names of the ones you'd like to know more about.

Playa Secreto

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

A second location worth considering 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: 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.

Be sure to look at the chart below to learn more.
