Stayed at the Secrets in Akumal, swam right up to turtles and sea life. Very pretty and calm beach. Not too crowded.

Saw many sea turtles. Save yourself a loot of money and take a taxi and rent the equipment on the beach

Visited while in Grand palladium not far from here. What a fantastic beach with amazing scenery. The water wsd clean and warm there are little bars around and boats to go out for fishing or diving. A must visit while in Mexico

The beach was beautiful. We went to snorkel with the turtles after a friend told us about the beach. When we got there we learned that they had roped off the area where the turtles were. You could snorkel but not out to the grassy spots where the turtles were. On the beach a lady with a whistle would alert... More

It's not every day you get to swim with the turtles. We lucked out and saw not just one but 5. We swam close to them not to disturb them eating the sea grass below. The beach is clean & suggest to get there early if you are beaching it. We paid $4 dollars to park & walked in w/no... More

The government no longer lets you pass a floating rope so we wont disturb the turtles. Do not do a tour with the locals that take you 2 KM down the road. Its open ocean and you may see some turtles but the tide is too strong. When I returned you just have to be patient by the rope and... More

One of the most beautiful beach on earth. Quite sea, really low waves. Enjoyable white sand. When I visited, some turtles where swimming on the bay. Was an incredible experience to see them. There's no enough restaurants.
