Our Hotel near Tulum Beach

A sea breeze puts the mind at ease

Tulum is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world where you can kick back on powdery sand, splash about in the crystalline surf or enjoy beachside restaurants and shopping to your heart’s content. Discover a selection of our favorite local beaches below.

Maïa Beach Club

Although Kimpton Aluna Resort Tulum does not have direct access to the beach, we have partnered with Maïa Beach Club, located in a private jungle within Tulum’s National Park, which offers the full beach club experience.

Playa Paraíso

Rent an umbrella and a lounge chair at the famed Playa Paraiso (literally “Paradise Beach” in English) with its white sand, clear blue water and a variety of restaurants, should you work up an appetite.

Playa Las Palmas

More secluded than Playa Paraíso, what Playa Las Palmas lacks in nearby restaurants, it more than makes up for with smooth stretches of white sand and gentle surf rolling in and out. The perfect choice for a peaceful beach day.

Secret Beach (Sian Ka’an Biosphere)

If you’ve got a taste for adventure, finding this sheltered beach in the heart of the Sian Ka’an Biosphere requires a bit of searching. Of course, you’ll be rewarded with sparkling waves, fine sand and maybe an iguana pal to join you as you lounge seaside.

Playa Ruinas

As the name suggests, Playa Ruinas is perfectly situated between the temperate cerulean waters of the Caribbean Sea and the famous ancient Mayan ruins of Tulum.
