Hope my Tulum Photo Diary inspired you to consider it as your next destination! Tulum in itself it’s the ultimate beach paradise and thus it’s not hard to find gorgeous places to take a dip and spend some quality #beachbum time.
However, the beach trip is really long and you will probably not be able to see it all, so I decided to dedicate a little post to share my top 5 favorite spots in Tulum.
As mentioned on my previous post, whether you stay at a resort or in town, you will have the freedom to access most of the beaches. Thumbs up to Tulum for that!
My two favourite public areas were Playa Paraiso and Playa Santa Fe. The latter is especially pintoresque with the colourful boats stationed on the shore. There were lots of palms that you could climb onto to take the ultimate Insta-worthy shot.
We felt safe to leave our stuff and head for a swim, because there were few people to begin with and most of the time they were couples or families like ourselves.
When we got thirsty or peckish, we walked to many of the beach clubs that are open to non-guests. These are beach clubs, but not the noisy, club-ish type of place (there’s barely any music playing loud in Tulum) but rather a spot where you can sip a margarita, maybe read a book and just hang out.
This white shabby chic hotel/restaurant/bar is by far the most stylish and in my opinion, embodies the spirit of Tulum. I literally took tens of pictures of this place, it features so many beautiful details! Not to mention the have a hammock facing the sea where you can take a sweet zzzz – because there’s nothing better than a nap at the beach listening to the waves…!
Ahau has a strong Bali feel to it. It must be its rustic décor and colourful food. We only had drinks but it would have been nice to try their food – it looked really yummy. Fabulous place for nourishing your appetite while enjoying the unobstructed views of the sea.
This is where all the cool kids hang out. The signature white hammocks at Coco Tulum are just irresistible. I recommend this place for a sunset drink to wrap up your day at the beach.
Have you been to Tulum? What beach spots did you like the most – I’d love to know!
