Tankah Bay – Villas, a cenote and peace

A cheese burger, a swim and a quiet place to hang your hat

Tankah is just to the south of Soliman Bay, with a small point separating these two bay areas. Though geographical neighbors, the bays can only be accessed from the main highway. To this day a beach road has not connected these two beautiful areas on the Mexican Caribbean coast. Tankah is divided into two areas. Paraiso Tankah is on the long point which juts out into the sea, separating the two bays of Soliman and Tankah to north. Tankah Bay, also known as Tankah Tres, is an exceptionally large bay with an outer reef break to reduce the surf. As a result, there’s great kayaking within the limits of Tankah Bay.

Tankah Bay is also the home of the ‘Casa Cenote’ restaurant, a local favorite for a cheeseburger and a cold one. Manatee cenote, also known as Casa Cenote, is a must see and do mangrove cenote. This natural water system winds its way through the mangrove toward the sea, making this cenote a mix of fresh and salt water. The tunnel that leads out to the Caribbean Ocean is a great place to see large schools of fish both in the cenote and at sea . The mangrove area surrounding Casa Cenote is a hunting ground for a number of migratory birds such as snowy egrets, ibis and herons.

What your vacation will look like in Tankah

Like Soliman Bay, Tankah is chill. There is lots to do but the area is not over-developed. Snorkel, kayak, swim, walk, chill, dream and relax. If you are looking to break away from the paradise of Tankah Bay, this location is convenient to numerous day trip adventures and towns along the coast. Aktun Chen Nature Park, Yal-ku lagoon in Akumal, numerous beaches and of course, the ancient Mayan ruins of Tulum, are all within a 10 to 15 minute drive of Tankah Bay.

The vacation villas of Tankah Bay and Paraiso Tankah

All the vacation homes and vacation villas in Tankah Bay and Paraiso Tankah run on pole power from the local utility company. Many have swimming pools, air conditioning and deluxe interiors, and all homes are located directly on the beach. Paraiso Tankah is on the north end of the access road, just beyond the north point of Tankah Bay. If you love to see the ruggedness of the Caribbean, Paraiso Tankah is a perfect spot to do it. If you want to walk out onto beaches and hop directly into the sea, Tankah Bay may be what you are looking for.
