One of tge best beachs that i ever have been. The water is super warm, and the reef part, where the water is shallow, we can see lots of fish around us. Also the water is pretty crystal clear, and the sand is very white.

This beach gets extremely busy but it is lovely. Recommend the snorkeling to see rays and turtles who remarkably still swim there in large numbers despite the thousands of people in the sea with them.

Great backdrop for a wedding, too bad the resort didn't equal the beach. We had red flags the entire week with amazingly huge waves.

I love Akumal beach. The sand is so soft and fine. The main attraction has to be the turtles. Last time I went it was a public beach so there was no security and while I was swimming I was constantly alert to my stuff lying in the beach.
