Excellent Beach

Excellent Beach. Lunch and drinks were served on beach everyday. Barmaids came around to serve you drinks, so you did not have to move, unless you were getting in the ocean

Lovely beach, warm and the sand was nice on our feet. Great view at night also. We walked the beach with ease.

This year the seaweed is a little rough, but it doesn't get in the way of enjoying the sea life and time in the ocean

Wonderful beach with turtles and beautiful coral reefs. I saw at least 3 turtles in one swim, some were huge! and you can get really close, just don't touch or frighten them :) When entering the beach from the road you may get bothered by people trying to sell you tours with the turtles, its not necessary as you will...

Visited this beach, just turned up there is not charge to get on beach. We found a shady palm tree to sit under and then snorkelled off beach and you do not have to go far before you can swim with the turtles. There are plenty of cheap bars to get food and drinks. We also went back on another... More

So the snorkel experience, there are lots of turtles and some other fish in the bay. You can see the turtles have a tag on their shell.

We used to go to Akumal almost annually in the late 80's and early 90's when Akumal was largely unknown and pristine. This trip was my first in twenty years, and what a surprise! It has grown tremendously. While still recognizable by the beach, it was very crowded (and weedy)! We rented a couple of boats and took a ride... More

Is the best beach ever. You can Swim and find turtles barracudas squids etc just a few yards from shore. Please take care of the coral reef, wear a life vest and make sure you pay attention to the boats entering the bay since I went to scuba dive everyday and we always encounter people swimming by the boat path...
