Gaviota Azul Beach or Gaviota Azul (Playa Gaviota Azul, which translates as "Blue Seagull") and Forum Beach or Lagarto Beach (Playa Forum or Playa Lagarto) are two public beaches in Cancun, which are the most famous and popular beaches of the tourist part of the city.

Playa Gaviota Azul and Playa Forum are a single beach strip where one beach smoothly flows into another.

Both beaches are public and the most famous in Cancun.

The beaches are located in the hotel zone of Cancun (Zona Hotelera), near the waters of the Caribbean Sea, at the very beginning of the long part of the beach seven of the resort, at 9.5 kilometers of the Hotelier zone (Kukulkan Boulevard) - in the place where Kukulkan Boulevard makes a 90-degree turn and has a bend called "Punta Cancun" (Punta Cancun). The first after the bend (a rocky cliff with an old lighthouse) is Gaviota Azul Beach, immediately after it is Forum Beach.

The beaches of Gaviota Azul and Forum are wide.

The beaches have light, dense and soft sand. Rescuers are on duty, there are first aid stations, showers, urns.

The sea water is clean and transparent, there are often waves. There are fewer or no waves on Gaviota Azul Beach compared to Forum Beach.

Hotels close the beaches from the road. There are also beach clubs and a supermarket.

Among the beach clubs where you can rent sun loungers and umbrellas are the famous beach and night club "Coco Bongo" and the beach club "Mandala Beach Club".

The public entrance to the beaches is located near the Coco Bongo Club.

Due to its location and the nearby developed part of the Cancun hotel zone, the beaches are crowded, music is playing from beach clubs, and household garbage is found on the beach strip itself.

Near the Forum beach on the coast there is a large boulder, which offers picturesque views of the beaches and the Caribbean Sea and which is a very popular place for photo shoots of tourists.
