Nothing is more beautiful than the number 1 most beautiful beach in all of Tulum! "Mayan Beach" is a secret gem hidden below the Tulum Ruins. After a hot day of walking around and seeing the many amazing ruins in Tulum, to our surprise the most beautiful beach appeared! Tired and hot, we couldn't wait to swim in this beautiful... More

Beautiful little beach beside the mayan ruins. Our grandson had a great time playing in the water. It would be worth visiting again just to play on this beach.

This was the highlight of the tour of the ruins, getting to visit the spectacular beach below. Amazing water , sand and rock formations. Lot of tourists but also crowded on Sunday because they let Mexican residents in for free, as they should given the poverty of half the country.

amazing beach even with all the tourist and the crowds... swiming at the bottom of the mayan temple is quite an experience

Beautiful beach to swim but not much of an area to lay out. Huge stair case that is tricky to navigate but worth it after walking around the ruins on a hot day. Stairs will be tricky for small children or elderly.

The beach and clear waters were stunning it is a conservation area so do not expect ice cream vans and drinks available on the beach the stairs are steep so you need to take care but well worth the visit

This beach is too touristy. Overpriced everything on the beach. It's a nice place to visit while you are at the Ruins, but the view from above the beach on the cliffs was better than the actual beach.

We did not get on this beach through the ruins, we went a little further down for direct access to the beach. There were a lot of local people there and it was one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen. The sand was like powder and the water had many beautiful shades of blue. This was probably...

It was exactly what I wanted on a hot day. Cool and refreshing, soft sand, crystal clear water. Bring your beach gear, snacks and some bottled water and set up camp here for an hour or two.

Wonderful! The waves were just right and there were no weeds to fight. We would have stayed longer perhaps, but there was no shade...
