Akumal Beach Condo


To Escape, Watch The Beach, Listen to its Sounds – Paradise in the Riviera Maya

There are many beaches in the Mayan Riviera, as Akumal is in the center, they are all close!

Great beaches are all around us.  Go Explore.

The MesoAmerican reef, the 2nd longest on earth, comes in close to many of the beaches, therefore some of the entrances to the water can be rocky, so bring reef shoes.

In general, the rockier a beach is, the better chance for good snorkeling.

Many of the beaches have an outer reef, so the water will be calmer. For those that do not and are fully open to the ocean, occasionally there can be some undertow. So before you venture out into the water, please check.

Most beaches do not have monitoring.

Loungin on a gorgeous beach in the Mayan Riviera is a favorite past time

Most beaches have a charge now for access. The charge may be direct at the road entrance, or could be a local restaurant or day club.

While all beaches in Mexico are federal property; some may be more difficult to access than others.

Most of the beaches now have some level of development, i.e. houses, and resorts, but there will always be a public access point.

Never leave valuables out on display in the car or the beach.  Leave valuables at home or in the car’s trunk.

We list only those that have easy access.

Paamul beach has good snorkeling and is usually quiet


PaaMul is actually a unique village of homes built of combining 5th wheeler trailer parks under giant palapas.

Fun to visit and view a unique way of living on the beach.  This ia a quiet less visited area.

On the small side, sandy, and never crowded.

There is also an oceanfront restaurant, which has very good food.

Paamul’s snorkeling is best near the point.


A Tulum beach that has been voted one of the world’s most beautiful beaches, and therefore gets it’s own mention.

Located following the left fork to the Tulum Beach road, almost all the way down.

Paradise Beach has a day beach club with decent food, beach chairs, umbrellas, hammocks, all at a cost. You can easily spend a full day here.

Especially fun people watching.

Clothing here can be on the very minimal side.

Great walking and often some kitesurfing, but not snorkeling

This is an example of why the Rivieria Maya's beaches are world renown: beautiful coconut palms right on the perfect sand
Soliman Bay beach has a great large shady beach and of course perfect Caribbean blue water


Slightly off the beaten path, a wonderful long sandy beach.

Great for beachcombing.

Access is at the far opposite ends, as there are house in the center.

On the far right is a very rustic seafood restaurant.

Very limited facilities.


Tankah beach is located such that it has a mangrove (and cenote) on its jungle side.

About 10 yards off the beach in the middle of it, is the exit of the cenote creating an interesting bubble effect.

Another fun beach restaurant.

Tankah Beach has a cenote exit just off shore into the middle of it
This is an example of why the Rivieria Maya's beaches are world renown



There are many stunningly beautiful beaches along the Tulum Beach road, following either the left or right fork.

To the left of the fork close to Paradise Beach, is a public access, which offers snorkel tours out to the reef. The left side ends at the base of the Tulum ruins (no access). Following the right fork, are miles and miles of beaches all the way to Sian Ka’an.

Access is typically by eating at one of the restaurants or day clubs that line the beaches, upon which you may spend a few hours.

Depending on the location, there may be various services such as kite/windsurfing and massages. Prices are not in-expensive.

The further south you go, the more raw and natural will be the area.


A beautiful wild and natural beach about 3 miles south of us.

Xcacel is used as a relocation point for turtle nests that are laid at the various resorts.

It has no shade, and no facilities, bring your own.

Xcacel beach is still wild with no services and attacts sun worshipers
