Fodor's Cancun and the Riviera Maya 2014
Playa Punta Nizuc
Playa Punta Nizuc Review
On the southern tip of the peninsula at Km 24, Playa Punta Nizuc is the most isolated and deserted beach in Cancún. Far from the crowds and party scene, this area has no amenities to speak of other than those available to guests at the nearby Wet 'n Wild Waterpark (Km 25). The lack of beach-traffic helps keep the white sands clean and the waters sparkling, except when sea grass washes onto the sand. This is a great place to collect seashells or swim, since waves only crash here on stormy days. There's plenty of street parking on Boulevard Kukulcán, but make sure you bring water, snacks, sunscreen, and an umbrella for shade, since this beach is about as barren as they come. Bordered by jungle to the south, Playa Punta Nizuc can be accessed directly from Boulevard Kukulcán. The nearest hotel with amenities (for guests only) is Club Med Cancun. Amenities: parking. Best For: solitude; swimming.
