“Psst! Don't tell anyone!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2014

Peaceful, big, spacious, friendly, easy, I simply love this beach! It's like you have the space all to yourself! Why go to Playa Del Carmen with all the hustle bustle and noise and people all around when you can just hang out with chill tourist and locals on a wide, awesome beach. Night life in town is perfect! You have enough bars to do bar hopping and hear local live bands! On the very end of the beach before the ruins you have dreamy Zazil'kin bar and beach... Must must must go there to CHILL.

“Great before the crowds roll in”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2014

We really enjoyed the beach, the water was clear and warm. The view is really cool. We would have loved to see the ruins in their hayday, all painted up in bright colors, would have been quite the sight.

“Best beach in Tulum?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2014

This beach was amazing, the water is much calmer here than in the southern beach area (where all the small hotels are). The water is beautiful and the fact that it is public gave it a nicer feel than the semi-private southern area. If you're staying at a hotel in Tulum, don't miss this beach.

Natural beauty ! unharmed by commercialisation - it is like stepping back in time - untouched by human kind of beaches!

Must see beach. Beautiful. Go early to avoid crowds. Went at 9am. Packed out by 11am all day. Bring lots of water as it quite a walk from shops etc.
