This public beach in Akumal is, quite simply, everything you’d want in a Riviera Maya beach – soft white sand, a sparkling blue bay, and snorkeling equipment available for rental so that couples can see the creatures of the reef up close.
If you just want to relax, politely tell the guys trying to rent you snorkeling gear that you’re not interested, and enjoy the beach at your leisure. Spot sea turtles and colorful fish or just absorb some rays from that sweet Mexican sun.
See the turtles or just relax, then have a meal at the beach’s nearby restaurants where prices are high by Mexican standards but portions are huge. Akumal beach is not to be missed!
