Beach at Grand Oasis Riviera Maya

Can anyone tell me how good the beach is at this resort? Our last stay was farther north at EDR and the beach was quite disappointing - very rocky and sandbags which were an eyesore. Looking for a sandy beach we can walk into the water without shoes, body-surf, etc. Thanks!

There is a very good area to get into the water to do some soakage. You can walk down infront of the condos toward GBP resorts and find other good areas to get into water. the snorkling is very good there too. There lots of coral when you get to the Diamond section of Bahia. To the north of the resort is lots of iron ore and you cannot get into the water there. Hope this helps you a bit

The beach at the Grand Oasis is very nice. We wore beach shoes, but you probably wouldn't have to. There is a reef that protects this area so there aren't many waves. Great for swimming, snorkeling, kayaking. Would be a good kids beach.

Body surfing & long sandy beaches - you need a resort near Tulum

And visit the Tulum forum

The Akumal resorts are all reef protected beaches so lots more coral, iffy sandy beaches.
