If you want peace, white sand, waves, clear waters, quiet beach bars, all located in the hop town of Tulum - look no further. It's great to see this beach used by locals as well as tourists, allowing all to share in the beauty of this natural resource. Did I mention the Tulum Mayan ruins overlooking the beach? 10 min...

We stayed at Palms Tulum who offered a discount on beach chairs here and what a surprisingly great perk that was. Our server Mikko even remember from day to day our drinks-felt like we were regulars like on Cheers! Beautiful spot to enjoy the beach and great service.

Perfect white sand beaches Amazing warm blue water to swim in Relaxing beachside restaurants Lots of room to roam and relax Not overcrowded Be sure to take a cab from the main strip or walk from the ruins

Get there early for a sunbed, table and chairs all for 250 pesos for the day then enjoy the perfect beach, great service and amazing people watching. I loved this place. Start much later than 10.30 and you'll struggle for a bed - it's great to come here after an early start at the ruins

This is a fantastic beach. Great place to stop and have lunch and spend the day in the ocean. The good is very good and the facilities are great for changing clothes and cleaning up.

Amazing beach in Tulum, as the others... The sand is white, soft and cool... quite place, sometimes with music from the nice beach bars but not party. Recommended! Over all in love with Mexico!

We chose Tulum because of this beach and we were not disappointed: it's picturesque and suitable for swimming. Other beaches around are less so. Would have preferred Playa Paraiso to be less crowed though.

Hands down one of my favourite beaches in the world! I visited in December when it was hot. The water was cool and there was enough shade under the trees. This white sandy beach isn't to miss!

If you want a shallow beach without all the hazzle, this is the place to go to. The sand is white, soft and cool. The easiest way to get here, if you don't have a car, is to take a taxi.

This beach is beautiful, but there did seem to be a few family oriented hotels along this strip, so lots of kids. If you are driving, there is a parking area for maybe 30-40 cars which is convenient.
