Fodor's Review

Extending 11 km (7 miles), Tulum's main beach is a tropical paradise comprised of glassy water and powdery sand, set off from the jungle by dunes and, increasingly, low-slung bungalow hotels where the yoga set take their virtuous rest. It's divided by a bridge and rocky promontory into two main sections, similar to each other, although the farther south you go on the Carretera Tulum-Boca Paila beach road, the more secluded and lovelier it gets. The beach is bordered on the south by the Sian Ka'an biosphere reserve, whose coast is even more deserted. To the north, you'll find the Tulum ruins. Amenities: food and drink; toilets; water sports. Best For : swimming; walking.
