Talk about a beach with a view! At Tulum's archeological site, the Caribbean's signature white sand and turquoise waters are framed by a backdrop of Mayan pyramids. The small cove can get crowded, especially during peak season when travelers flock to the ruins for a day of sightseeing. The south end by the rocks tends to have more breathing room. Only those who purchase a ticket to the ruins can access this beach, unless of course you appraoch the shores by boat. Amenities
: none. Best for: swimming.
