Soliman Bay

Midway between Akumal and Tulum is Soliman Bay. Soliman Bay offers a semi-private beach that is used mostly by guests of properties along the bay. Coconut palms and other seaside vegetation line the sandy beach. Tucked back into the greenery you will find a small number of beach bungalows and a luxury villas. This a great bay to snorkel, swim or sea kayak. An outer reef keeps the bay quiet on most days.

Most of vacation accommodations along the bay have brightly colored hammocks, shade palapas and sea kayaks for guests to use during their stay. The beach here is generally sandy (a little course) with and easy gradual slope into the water. The bottom of the bay has large areas of turtle grass and some coral heads.

We recommend that you bring your water socks so you don’t have to give a second thought about who lives in the grass. Lots of palm trees mean that it is easy to get out of the sun if you need to. This is a true getaway and a very special place.

To get here head south from Akumal approximately seven miles passing Xel Ha Park and Hidden Wolrd's Cenotes. Turn left where you see the sign for Oscar and Lalo’s Restaurante. Travel to the end of the gravel road, turn right to reach Soliman Bay.  There are several public access points on the beach.  Enjoy!
