The beaches of Tulum are considered among the most beautiful in the world and their true characteristic is the contrast of colors: the white of the sand, the bright green of the Caribbean nature and a sea with turquoise and emerald tones. Among the most beautiful beaches we find the Half Moon Bay, a stretch of soft sand with a perfect crescent shape known for the possibility of practicing activities such as snorkeling and kayaking. In second place we find the Chan Yu Yum beach, a small sheltered bay protected from the winds characterized by some rocky parts that emerge from the sea and from a vegetation that extends to the beach. In third place among the most beautiful beaches we find the Akumal Bay, small but so beautiful it resembles a postcard.
