While all the beaches in the Riviera Maya share a certain beauty that is not easily found anywhere else in the world, many beaches have their own distinct style. Soliman Bay, Tulum demonstrates this, combining near-virgin beaches with a nice, quiet and small residential area.
Soliman Bay is located exactly between Tulum and the nearby village of Akumal, about 15 minutes from either. It is about 45 minutes from Playa del Carmen and about 1.5 hours from the Cancun international airport. The location is convenient because it is easy to arrive to, and it is close to many activities and services, while the beach itself is still very isolated and distant feeling from the area’s main tourist centers. A beach like this in the middle of nowhere might not surprise (or interest) anyone but in the middle of such an accessible tourist region, it’s truly a hidden gem.
The beach is a balance between something that seems almost virgin and nice residential areas. The area is quiet, and the wide white beaches stretch out for miles, contrasting the bright turquoise water. While there are some nice homes along the beachfront, it is still very natural with plenty of vegetation and palm trees. There are also beautiful hotels. The range of hotels reflects the same contrast; there are upscale resorts (smaller, mind you) as well as rustic-looking cabins with thatched roofs.
What You Can Do
As you can probably guess from the description, Soliman Bay is the ideal place to relax on a hammock, or go for a quiet walk along the sand. You can also enjoy kayaking and snorkeling. The beach is great for just about anything relaxing. There are good restaurants and nice beach clubs with pools, lounge areas and bars. There are quiet cabins where you can enjoy a quiet retreat under the bright stars of the Caribbean.
The homes on the beach offer a comfortable, spacious luxury lifestyle. The views of the beach, the close contact with nature, the quiet, serene surroundings all had very high value to properties on the bay, not only in terms of money, but even more so in terms of lifestyle. While there are some things money can’t buy, the good part about real estate in this area is that for a very low cost, you can get a lot closer to many of those things.
Consider a visit to Soliman Bay.
