Visitors to Cancun's Tulum Beach can soak in its serenity as well as the mystery of the ancient culture which once rested on its sands. With views of the Mayan Tulum Ruins in sight, the beach remains void of any sort of commercialization and preserves its primitive feel.

Visitors have remarked that the water is more sweet than salty, but that sand and weeds make snorkeling and diving difficult when the sea is rough.

Privacy is what draws most people to Tulum Beach, which has some clothing optional areas.

Tulum beach is the best beach I have ever visited. I don't mean the beach right next to the Mayan ruins, I mean the beach a little south of that, it's long & wide, white-sanded, and the sea is stunning and warm.

Admittedly I went at the height of swine flu, so it was empty, but it was paradise to me.
