The colour of the ocean changes dramatically as it rolls into this beach changing from royal blues to almost electric blue to white as the waves crash. That much foam keeps the sand looking more latte than milk, but it’s soft and sunny and there is plenty of it so what’s a few shades of white between friends. The water does churn and currents cross just off shore so be careful if you were planning to do anything more than lie on the sand.

Rocks mark the entrance off Boulevard Kukulcan, and the beach fans out from there.
