Half Moon Bay, Akumal

(3.9/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
For peace and serenity away from the tourist crowds head to Half Moon Bay. You can swim in the calm waters, but be careful not to step on any creatures--swim shoes may be a good idea. Snorkel in the clear waters and admire the marine wildlife around you. Access to the beach is easier for those staying in accommodations along Half Moon Bay, but it is accessible to all. Take care in the water on windy days, as it is not as protected by outlying reefs as other bays nearby. Add Half Moon Bay to your Akumal travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Akumal trip generator.
