How well do you know the beaches in the Riviera Maya? Do you know where this bay is? Let me give you some clues, and see if you can guess.
It’s a bay – OK, I guess this isn’t such a good clue, since I already stated that it’s bay. But if you’ve been there, you’ll recognize it as a very calm, quiet bay, where the water is very still and relaxing. The view of the surrounding nature is also spectacular.
It’s good place to go snorkelling – Because of the layout of the bay, it’s a nice place to go snorkelling and see the tropical fish on the bed of the bay. Diving is also very nice, with the coral reef nearby!
The beaches are absolutely beautiful – The beaches are wide, with soft white sand. The water is a bright turquoise! This is probably the most useless clue, since this describes just about any beach in the Riviera Maya, but just in case you were wondering …
It’s home to many sea turtles – This is a little more unique. Sea turtles are very common to this part of Mexico’s beachfront, but they have their favorite nesting areas and habitats. This bay
It’s near a quaint, beachfront village – This really narrows down your choices, if you know this area. The village is very rustic, and very natural with a culture for preserving this very nature – probably part of the reason why the bay’s nature has been kept intact. There’s an ecological center in the town with great information about the turtles and the bay.
There’s a nice beach club – The bay itself also includes a nice beach club for comfortable relaxation at any time. There’s no better way to enjoy the surrounding nature than a luxury beach club.
The food at the restaurant is great – In case you get hungry, here there’s no need to bring a picnic – the food is amazing!
There are beautiful homes around the bay – Not all parts of the Riviera Maya have single lot homes right on the beach.
It’s about 40 minutes south of Playa del Carmen – This means it’s close to shopping, not to mention the international airport, which is about an hour and a half.
It’s near Akumal! – Yes, it’s Halfmoon Bay, Akumal. If you’ve been there, you probably guessed it already. If you haven’t, well, now’s a good time to begin planning the trip.
