Found this spot from an article. The bay can seem sketchy to get to if you are driving as the streets are narrow and turn to dirt. When you arrive and walk towards the restaurants you see the beautiful sand and water. The sand is rougher than Akumal Bay so make sure you bring shoes. You can find many seashells.... More

Tankah Bay is the perfect spot if you wish to get away from the crowd. The bay is a nice community of private houses, most of which are available to rent. Pretty much half way around the bay you will find a little restaurant called Casa Cenote, where you can have a bite to eat, or a drink. It's laid... More

Found the access road to the beach but it was blocked off with cones and had 2 security guards working a booth. When asked if we could get to the beach they either didn’t understand or didn’t want us down there for some reason.

The beaches of Tulum and Playa are getting hit with Sargassum which is a seaweed that comes from the Atlantic. Its washing up on shores all over but the community is rallying to get it cleaned up. These beaches are still beautiful but consider the sargassum if planning a wedding...

I loved this area from the first moment. It is totally quiet and relaxing - no crowds. No huge buildings. A few hotels only. It is the true escape. I never wanted to leave.

We liked it so much we bought a house there! Great for kayaking swimming a d snorkeling. There are two restaurants there within walking distance of any of the hotels, or rental villas. They will soon be opening up another restaurant. There are also toe dive shops, and tour companies. Across the road from Casa Centoe, is Manatee Cenote where... More

We just returned from a one week stay at CASA CAVU. In all our vacation experiences, we have yet to find our paradise, however, CASA CAVU has potential. Actually, there are many homes situated in Tankah Bay that may rightfully claim a piece of paradise. The homes are at peace within 50-100 feet from the Bay. Some of the best... More

We are planning on staying in Tankah next visit. Usually stay in Cancun or Isla Mujures. Every visit to this area includes a stop in Tankah. The gift shop and restaurant are fun places to stop. Must swim in the cenote. I believe each visit weather just my husband and I or with the kids, we all enjoyed it. Its... More

We think the Tankah Tres beach is one of the best we have ever seen. The reef keeps the waves low and is ideal for snorkeling, swimming or kayaking. There is a popular Cenote right off the beach!

Excellent stay on Soliman Bay, with privacy and security at night on the entrance of the road....a beach hut, fresh fish restaurant, under the palms for lunch at the end of the road....snorkeling and kayaking and swimming out in protected sand beach bay....no crowds, no naked people, no bar noise....lovely.
