Mayan Beach, Tulum

4.4
#5 of 17 in Beaches in Riviera Maya
Beach Nature / Park
Combine historical exploration with seaside recreation at Mayan Beach, an area of sandy and rocky coastline that includes a set of Mayan ruins. On top of a rocky bluff, find the ruined walls of the old town, overlooking the beach and the Caribbean Sea. Head down the steps to get to the sand and the water, and relax under the watchful eye of the ancient town's fortifications. The rocky bluff, dotted with palms and shrubs, completes the picture-perfect scene. Before you head to Tulum, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Tulum itinerary maker, to make sure you see all that Tulum has to offer, including Mayan Beach.

  • Loved this beach turquoise water. Not very wide this fringe of sand, but that white sand and coral no no stone so no shoes to walk in the water. While at the hotel Bahia Principe to Coba, impossible to get around without shoes because around Coral Sea

  • On our first visit to the ruins of Tulum, on excursion, we are left with the desire to get to the beach and refresh us, after a strenuous hike. This time we were on our own and gave us a taste. As beach is not a wonder, but it has the charm of living at the foot of the ruins, framed in a very beautiful nature.

  • A toast, better, this, at the end of the stroll through the ruins. DON'T BE LAZY, GET DOWN! Here we have the second most beautiful in the world (Praia do Sancho, Fernando de Noronha-PE/BR) but the beach, even full, deserves a dip and the contemplation of the entire structure of the coast. Have Fun!!!
