Soliman Bay - Quiet Paradise
One of Our Favorite Tulum Destinations
Perhaps its our romantic memories of the days of old here in Mexico, but Soliman Bay holds a special place in our hearts. This residential community is where a morning cup of coffee has never tasted better as you watch the sunrise. From luxury villas to quaint bungalows and even a stylish boutique hotel, Soliman Bay is paradise for those seeking a peaceful place to relax… and dream.
La Bahía de Soliman is a laid back residential community on a large crescent shaped bay. The protected bay area makes this inlet an excellent location for snorkeling and kayaking. Couples and families come to Soliman Bay to avoid the pace of mainstream tourism and enjoy the simple pleasures of sun, sea, and sand on an uncrowded, semi-private beach. Accommodations range from small deluxe cabanas and beach bungalows to grand hacienda villas, all facing beautiful Soliman Bay. When you feel the need to spice things up with a little adventure, Tulum is just 15 minutes south with great beaches, cenotes for swimming/snorkeling adventures, and the pueblo for shopping.
So What Do You Do in Soliman Bay?
Besides lounging in a hammock, there’s beach walks, sunbathing, bird watching, sea kayaking, diving, gazing at the stars, or just doing nothing at all! The location is convenient to numerous day trip adventures along the coast. Freshwater cenotes, Aktun Chen Nature Park, Yal-ku lagoon in Akumal, numerous beaches and of course the Mayan ruins of Tulum and Coba are close by. People like Soliman Bay because it’s a step back in time, a tropical paradise haven away from other larger towns and cities. There are two small restaurants that locals love, a beachside fish taco palapa, Chamico’, and a higher-end fusion restaurant, Sahara Restaurant, with great views of the bay, stars and moon. All is quiet on the eastern-front in this small community that many people call their personal paradise.
