Playa Paraíso is a beatiful beach, with sands as fine as grains of salt. You would expect the beach to be full of tourists, but it is not (but it is no hidden secret either, being one of the best beaches in the world). If you have visited the Tulúm ruins you can walk south, on the old road, and... More

We went there and it was the best beach around, calm deep water with awesome color. There is a beach club called el paraiso, but we didn't go to it, we just brought a towel and laid there. There is a nice option to have lunch at bar Adelita witch is further north. If you walk north for some minutes... More

Beautiful beach! White sand, turqoise water, very nice beach! Access to the beach isn´t too easy from Tulum city. You need to take a taxi, and it was quite expensive, for about 7 minutes drive. But still, worth it!

Only a short distance (2-3 KM) from centre of Tulum, this is the best public beach in the area. Most are owned by hotels. The beach is stunning. Textbook stuff - white sand, blue sea and lots of palm trees. Not too packed when we were there. Great arrangement for a full day. You can rent a big leather mattress... More

Playa Paraiso aka Paradise Beach is on the same road as going to the Tulum ruins. There is NO FEE to access this beach and parking is free too. This stretch of beach is a lot calmer on windy days than along the beachfront resorts. A bonus are the local boat operators who will offer to take you out to... More

This is the best public beach in Tulum. There are restaurants on site with great food and cocktails and there are plenty boats waiting to take you out snorkeling or for photos of Mayan Beach with the ruins for $20 per person. There are chairs, sunbeds, tables and food/drink service available for those relaxing on the beach. There is a... More

Nice beach but really overpriced and rude staff. Go 200 meters more to the north and you'll find a gem with a little bar with live music and delicious cocktails.

Beautiful beach! There is also a great taco stand located right on the beach. They have beach chairs/thatched huts for rent. There are bathrooms available to the public but they were gross.

We visited this beach as part of the Tulum Paradise tour. Even on an overcase day it's really nice! The beach is very clean and wide with plenty of palm trees, room to spread out on blankets and very picturesque. Bring some money. They'll charge for tables, chairs, and the restrooms. Food and drink prices were a little high, but... More
