Amazing beach

We went to Akumal Bay really early in the morning when not all dive shops were open. We saw lots of turtle but that's pretty much it - the water was a bit murky, even since early morning.

Lots of other sea life to see here - but the Turtle's were especially impressive. What I like most is that this is a conservation area - and they actually care about the Turtles and coral - hence why you you have to wear life jackets to stop you hitting the bottom. I would always go with a guide as... More

One of tge best beachs that i ever have been. The water is super warm, and the reef part, where the water is shallow, we can see lots of fish around us. Also the water is pretty crystal clear, and the sand is very white.

This beach gets extremely busy but it is lovely. Recommend the snorkeling to see rays and turtles who remarkably still swim there in large numbers despite the thousands of people in the sea with them.
