Mayan Beach, Tulum
(4.3/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • The beach belong to the ruins archeological site. Then you have to pay the entrance to access but the place is beautiful there is a lot of people but is very clean 
  • Enjoy a visit to the ruins and take a great swim at the beach, enjoying the beautiful look of turquoise sea of the region.

  • Small beach to see and do at least the bathroom if not too many people saw that. accesses from the Mayan ruins and especially on a hot day as my ... fantastic view is from above the ruins and the beach itself which is accessed after a steep wooden staircase minus is too small for people that have mah at least for a bath nor worth
