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.  

Pick Your Ideal Beach

You will find a large selection of beaches to enjoy in and around the area. Snorkeling is available at several locations, for people who are so inclined. For detailed information about any of these beaches click on the names of the ones you're interested in.

Playa Secreto

Playa Secreto: While visting the Playa Secreto vacationers will be able to explore many of Mexico's fascinating attractions, such as the ancient Maya ruins. You can also take advantage of a variety of watersports, world class scuba diving around stunning coral reef formations, and superb saltwater fishing.

A second alternative to consider is Punta Nizuc. 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.

Playa Delfines: The picturesque shores of the Playa Delfines are excellent for a myriad of beach activities. Located just south of Chacmool, this coastline features breathtaking views, cool island breezes, and spectacular sand dunes.

The following table enables you to learn a few details concerning the beaches that can be found in and around the area.
