A wonderful beach that hasn't been ruined by the big all in ones, Tankah is a gem of a beach. Nice white sand, good swimming and a couple of good restaurants and a nice BandB. Stay away from the horrible resorts and come to Tankah. You won't be disappointed.

If you want a break from the histor, or big town bustle, this is definitely one place to come to. Bring the snorkel and enjoy

We stayed in a home here and loved the area. The private road access is a plus while the speed bumps are a pain! While the area is very nice with lovely existing homes and many under construction, the beach is very rocky. It makes for nice tide pools for shelling and exploring, but nothing in the way of walking... More

One of the best afternoons I've had was in this beautiful beach, a very lonely one but with a special charm. The beach is connected to the exit of a cenote at Parque Tankah and you can feel the combination with the cold water from the cenote and the warmth from the mexican caribbean sea. Don't hesitate on visiting this... More

Sandy part of the beach was fairly narrow around Blue Sky. The beach gives way to a rather jagged rocky shoreline just past the lap of the waves. Not great for bathing or floating...but there are some tropical fish and corals see around the rocks.

We have rented a house on Tankah Beach for one week in August. The beach is gorgeous, white sand, palm trees only a few people. And just opposite the Casa Cenote there is a cenote where you can go snorkelling or scuba diving. We really hope to come back one day!

Right by the Casa Cenote sign there is a cenote in the back that is very cool. Not as many fish as good salt water spots but unique rock formations and fresh water fish. There are few spots to rest as the mangoves go to the edge so you might want a floatation device if you are not a great... More

Tankah is one of the quietist places I have ever been to in Mexico. Soft waves but rocky (Coral outcroppings) so most areas are not good for swimming.
