Tulum BeachesThe Tulum Beaches
Sunbathers and swimmers indulging in a visit to Tulum Beach's white, limestone sands and crystal blue waters need only look up in wonder at the ancient Mayans ruins -- some from as early as A.D. 250 -- dotting the cliffs above them to grasp the aura of the ancient mystery that surrounds them. The beaches along the Boca Paila (south of the ruins) have luckily managed to escape resort development, leaving pristine beaches, white sand, blue waters and a definite lack of clutter. These beaches are considered among the best preserved and most enjoyable ones in the world.
