    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a great looking an very well build wooden stairway to the beach below .
    It is well worth going down to see this beach or even stay there for the day .
    If looking at the the Ruinas get you tired ,well this is the place to go .
    I hope you brought a bathing suit towel & sunblock.
    Yes you do need a bathing suit.

    Explore the area

    Take a walk along the beach and explore the area. Sometimes you might have to climb some rocks or walk on some cliffs, but it is a great journey. You have magnificent views of the surrounding jungle, and of course the sea and the beach.

    The beach in Papaya Playa

    by Maria_75 Written Nov 10, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    More beaches... The beach in Papaya Playa is great. It stretches out a long way, and you can find your own place without being too close to anyone else on the beach.

    All of the cabaƱas are next to the beach, so in the morning you can just wake up, roll out of bed and down to the beach.

    You don't have to fight for a place

    Beaches of Tulum

    by Maria_75 Written Nov 10, 2004

    I think I could write a whole book about how incredible beautiful the beaches of Tulum is. They are really paradisebeaches. Kilometres and kilometres of long white beaches, and the crystalclear turquise water. It's so beautiful, and there are not so many tourists so you can find a place all to yourself.

    Beautiful beaches

    The large beach near the ruins

    by Maria_75 Written Nov 10, 2004

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There is a bigger beach between El Castillo and Templo del mar. It's a bit tricky to get to this beach so there are not so many tourists here. You can either climb down the mountainside, or you can go swimming or climbing over the rocks from the small beach.

    It's really not so difficult to get there, and it's worth it just to escape the crowds. You also have an incredible view up to the castle from here. Unfortunately they were building some stairs from behind El Castillo and down to the big beach when I was there. So then this beach will not be as quiet anymore.

    Beautiful turquise and warm sea

    by Maria_75 Written Nov 10, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Take a swim in the ocean! It's really nice and warm, and most of the time very calm. Unless you get caught in a small storm where the currents can get quite strong and the waves very high. But most of the time it is perfect to just float and swim around in the sea.

    If you snorkel it's really not so much to see close to the beach. The coral reef is situated out in the sea and there are many tour operators and hotels that arrange different trips.

    Relax in the sea

    The beach

    by micas_pt Updated Oct 27, 2003

    The mayan ruins are just by the sea, the fabulous Caribbean Sea. The water has an emerald color i have never seen in other beaches, ... When visiting the Tulum ruins make sure you take your bathing suit as there is sandy beach (somewhat crowded) where you can relax for a while. When i visited Tulum it was rather hot and after walking around the ruins a nice bath on that beach feels so good and refreshing.

    Swim at the Ruins

    by windsorgirl Written Oct 4, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When you go to see the Tulum Ruins, remember to pack your bathing suit and towel. Arrive early in the morning to do your sightseeing and photography but take a break at the beach when the ruins become too crowded and the sun too hot.

    The beach area of Tulum has been used in several films including a James Bond although I cannot recall which.

    I can see why the Mayans built their city here, look at the fabulous view. Imagine how much this would cost in California! ;-)

    There is a very large white sand beach about 1km south of the Tulum ruins. Here you will find inexpensive cabana accomodations and beach side caravan camping as well.

    Walk to the Lighthouse

    From the Cabanas Sante Fe, it is a short walk uphill to a nearby lighthouse. From here you will have a nice view back to the beach.
