Vacation Tips

Much like Cozumel, these beaches have some of the best snorkeling and beachfront rentals but on the mainland. South of Cancun and Playa del Carmen, these beaches are much closer to the most important sites in Riviera Maya, including Tulum and Akumal. Travelers searching for a vacation experience with easy access to nearby attractions but not too close to the action are choosing these beaches as their destination of choice this winter. 

Soliman Bay 

Conveniently located between Akumal and Tulum, Soliman Bay is one of the most exclusive and accessible beaches in Riviera Maya. Undeniably, one of the most beautiful private beaches this gated community has some of the most gorgeous beachfront rentals. Access to Soliman Bay is strictly via reservation only so guests can enjoy a quiet and peaceful retreat during their stay. Chef and grocery delivery are also available for an even more carefree vacation. On the northern point of the bay, there’s Pandano restaurant which offers some of the finest restaurant dining in the area and welcomes guests staying in Soliman Bay for lunch, happy hour, and dinner. 

Half Moon Bay

The northernmost of Akumal’s 5 major bays, Half Moon Bay is in the gated community of Akumal Norte. Guests staying on Half Moon Bay will find themselves on the best beach for snorkeling right outside their door and within walking distance to Akumal Bay, Yal-Ku Lagoon.  This beach is well-known for it’s low-key Caribbean town vibes, with several restaurants, bars, and shops nearby. Families and friends looking for beachfront rentals love staying in Half Moon Bay for its location and accessible rates.

Jade Bay

Just south of Akumal Bay, Jade Bay holds some of the most beautiful luxury vacation rental homes in Akumal.  Guests choosing to stay in Jade Bay will be able to enjoy gorgeous views, great snorkeling, and luxury vacation rentals at accessible prices. The Jungle Fish Beach Restaurant Club is open during the day and welcomes guests staying in Jade Bay for lunch, and happy hour. Only a three-minute drive to Akumal proper, guests staying here can also walk on the beach to Akumal Bay.  Of course, there is a rocky point in between both beaches so wear comfortable shoes, a hat, and sunscreen.
