The best beaches in Cancun


One of the great paradises for vacations is Cancun, which every year receives millions of tourists from all over the world who search its beaches for the perfect place for their vacations. This Mexican paradise is at the end of the Yucatan Peninsula and on the sides that overlook the Caribbean Sea there are many beaches, ports, coral reefs, Mayan ruins and a large number of interesting places that will make your vacation unforgettable.

But there is no doubt that the most striking thing about this place are its beaches, beautiful with its white sand, turquoise waters and a radiant sun that is present practically 365 days a year. All the beaches are suitable for public use and all of them have colored flags that reflect whether or not it is advisable to bathe in its waters. The white flag is for excellent waters, the green one for safe waters, the yellow one must be careful and the red one is not recommended since bathing is not safe. It's hard to tell what they are the best beaches in Cancun since they all deserve to be, but here are some of them:
