We travelled from Cancun, so the beach wasn't a priority to us. It's small and was quite crowded. If you're based in Tulum and not at a resort, I guess it's a place to enjoy the beach but there are better options close by.

One of the prettiest beaches on the Yukutan. Always the clearest, vibrant waters. While not always open and you have to go into the park to access the beach, if it is open, make the long trek down the steep stairs...you'll be glad you did....More

Pictures don't justify the beauty of this beach. I wish I had an extra day to spend there. Do your best to make it there early. It gets very crowded by mid day.

Just beautiful. And you can take a snorkeling trip which includes a view of the Mayan ruins of Tulum from the sea.

After walking around the Mayan Ruins, no better way to refresh your body than to jump in the cool waters of this beautiful beach. Caution. Current is strong and on the day I went the place was packed.

Mayan Beach is a very special place where whoever visits will create wonderful memories. The beaches are sandy where you swim, volleyball net available, in the shadow of Maya ruins. Stay until sunset to enjoy gorgeous pink, orange vistas over the multi-colored blues of the...More

No. Just a bunch of lizards and iguanas. But they don't mind you if you don't mind them.

I haven't had any experience with renting a car there, but from my personal experience, if you're staying close enough to food and what not, I would stick with taking a taxi or bus. If taking a taxi, I'd ask for a trip... More

Yes, the beaches are public. You don't have to climb down the steep stairs at the peak of the Tulum ruins though. In the parking lot area, on the right side is the path to the Cenote. Walk down the sand path [as if you... More
