Next to CoCo Bongo is a walkway along the outer edge of Plaza Forum By The Sea leading to the Caribbean. The archway declares it is Mandala Beach. Yet maps identify it as Playa Gaviota Azul (Blue Seagull Beach), Playa Lagarto and Playa de Cancún and locals often call it City Beach or Forum Beach. A few bare-foot steps to the south is Playa Chac Mool, named after the famous reclining figures discovered at Chichen Itza. Confused? Don’t be. This crescent-shaped, public beach adjoining the Party Zone is why you came to Cancun. So simply call it spectacular and enjoy the day of sunshine with a friend!
