Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Definitely a very unique beach, as the Mayans ruins overlook the entire beach. It wasn't possible to go on it though due to the newest covid restrictions.

Thanks to its fantastic position Tulum archeological site is one of the most visited and photographed ones. For more info on how to visit it, please read my detailed review about it.
As I mentioned in that review, I carried my backpack with swimwear and towels all the way in that heat in order to swim beneath - on the Mayan beach.
Unfortunately it is NOT possible - the stairway to the beach is CLOSED due to Covid until further notice. You can only admire it from the cliff above.

You can reach this small, beautiful, white sand beach via a staircase from the Tulum archeological ruins. The stairs are located as you traverse the path to approach the Castillo along the cliffs overlooking the water. The beach appeared quite busy the day we were there. There is no fee for the beach as it is a public domaine and your entrance fee for the ruins allows beach entry via the stairwell but be sure to bring towels etc. if you plan to go down to the water.

We visited the Ruins but the stairs down to this beach was closed due to COVID. We wanted to let other visitors know that you can still access the public beach. When you exit the Ruins, go left down the path. You’ll reach a public beach access, where all the taxi drivers are hanging out and entrance to the Santa Fe Beach Club. Enter the path and when you get to the open beach, go to the left. It’s an awesome beach for adults!

There’s plenty of space, you can see the Ruins in the distance, and the most clear water, beautiful stretch of beach. You’ll find chill European sun bathers and beach goers. It’s such a relaxing time! We loved it here!

My husband and I walked along this beach and enjoyed the views of the towers from the shore. The ruins are closed due to the pandemic but hoping one day when life is 'normal' we will return to visit the ruins.

I came for a dawn photoshoot and wasn't disapointed. We got amazing shots on the white sand and rocks, and there was an extra special magic in the air from being so close to the Mayan ruins. Gorgeous location.

Has to be visted very first thing in the morning as later it's packed with tourists. It's very small, so gets crowdy very quickly. The view from above from the Mayan ruins is more beautiful than the beach itself.

This is well worth it! Visit the Mayan temple at Tulum and walk along the shoreline. Excellent opportunities for stunning pictures along the bluff overlooking the ocean. Lots of iguanas to spot amongst the ruins.

Was such a nice surprise. We wound up staying for a couple hours, never knowing it was even an option. Small cave to the right that was fun to explore. Snorkeled and saw lots of fish. We did spot a small manta ray, so shuffle those feet! They hurt a lot!
