Akumal Beach - Mexico

Akumal Beach is located between Playa del Carmen and Tulum in the heart of the Riviera Maya on Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula. It is a long white sand beach that is lapped by the warm turquoise seas of the Caribbean. Behind the palm trees lies a charming little town that is well equipped to meet the needs of visitors.

Often seen as one of Mexico’s best beaches, Akumal is known for being one of the coast’s top destinations for snorkeling. Here you’ll find not only vibrant coral reefs close to shore, but sea turtles swimming in the calm waters - Akumal actually means “Land of turtles” in the Mayan language.

With such warm, safe waters Akumal is ever popular with families who are attracted to the great beach and laid back atmosphere.
