Playa Las Perlas Cancun or Las Perlas Beach Cancun is a beach you must visit during your visit to the city of Cancun and highly recommended if you are traveling with children.
Playa las Perlas is one of the first beaches we find at the entrance of Cancun’s Hotel Zone and it is a totally family beach, with very calm waters, shallow depth and full of different activities for the family.
Las Perlas Beach Cancun
Playa Las Perlas is located just 2.5 kilometers away from the entrance of the hotel zone of Cancun and precisely because of this proximity you can reach it walking, biking, by bus, car or even rollerblades.
Let’s remember that kilometer zero is the entrance to Cancun’s hotel zone.
In fact, this beach is the favorite of many athletes on weekends, as they add it to their tour, entering in Playa Las Perlas to continue along the white sand of Cancun and exit near kilometer 4.5, that is, by the quality bridge which we will talk about in another post.
Playa las Perlas is named after the name of the hotel «Las Perlas» which is the first one we found in Cancun’s Hotel Zone. The proximity to this hotel gave its name as a reference and thanks to its shallow depth and calm waves it has become the most popular family beach in the city.
Its location gives you the advantage of not having to wait for the buses from the hotel zone to be able to «return» to the center of the city and if you are traveling by car, you don’t have to worry, because this beach has parking.
In Playa las Perlas you will also find a small park for children, small cabanas for public use, showers, restrooms and of course lifeguards that will protect your physical integrity at all times.
Also in this beach of Cancun beaches you can find nearby rental boards for paddle boarding, surfing and kayaking.
As a last extra piece of information we can give you, here you will not find many restaurants or street food vendors nearby, so it is best to go prepared to not go hungry and thirsty,
