Prettiest beach?

We will be staying at Sian Kaan 31st August for two weeks. I'd like to know where the prettiest beach is that we could get to by collectivo. Not too worried about fish or turtles, just clear water, white sand and pretty.

Any advice welcome.

The beach at the Tulum ruins is really pretty.

However Tulum beaches are not acceptable via colectivo

You need to take a colectivo to Tulum Pueblo (San Fran super market)

Then a short taxi to Tulum (100-150 pesos)

Akumal Beach is a short colectivo and a 5+ minute walkin from the Highway - smaller but nice beach / bay

Akumal beach was on my list last year so maybe when I am back in August I will finally make the short trip. Rent a golf cart and spend the day.

The beach in Tulum is very pretty, and plenty of space for walking. The water is beautiful, and here the waves crash on the beach. But quite tame. A beach crawl is a lot of fun.

In Akumal proper the waves are tamed by the reef. And I find the beach gets a bit crowded. Further south from Lol Ha you get more wave action.

So it depends on what you're looking for in terms of scenery and experience. And, if you are looking for multiple spots to eat and drink.
