“Best beach in Tulum?”
Reviewed 23 May 2014

This beach was amazing, the water is much calmer here than in the southern beach area (where all the small hotels are). The water is beautiful and the fact that it is public gave it a nicer feel than the semi-private southern area. If you're staying at a hotel in Tulum, don't miss this beach.

“Must see. Paradise”
Reviewed 7 May 2014 via mobile

Must see beach. Beautiful. Go early to avoid crowds. Went at 9am. Packed out by 11am all day. Bring lots of water as it quite a walk from shops etc.

“Stunning”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

A beautiful beach with crystal blue sea, however, it was Easter so it was full of Teenage Spring breakers. Would highly recommend visiting outside of the peak periods.

“Not to be missed!”
Reviewed 22 March 2014

The beach below the Mayan ruins and running south is certainly one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Soft white sand, rolling waves in the surf, it's a dream...we left our condo in Half Moon Bay to spend a wonderful day frolicking in the water. It's a must do every time I am in the area! We headed south from Akumul and at the corner that has the supermarket (on our right) we took a left turn and headed east. When the road makes a y we took a left, drove about 1/2 -3/4 of a mile (parallel to the water) and parked, took our towel and headed to the sand. Just that easy!
