The Tulum public beach outside the ruins is nice but very deserted, only a few people there. The beach was full of seaweeds. I personally prefer the inside the ruins beach.
We walked for a while before finding a restaurant hidden in the bungalows area, the grilled fish with rice and red beans purée was delicious.
The pictures below are of the Tulum public beach, beautiful as well but quite deserted.
Perfect for those who love nature and quietness.
The only restaurant around the corner, with great food...
...and a cute cat.
