The water enthusiast will find lots more to do than sit and sun at Akumal Beach. The most popular activity is swimming among the sea turtles. Scuba divers and snorkelers thoroughly enjoy exploring the coral reef, underwater caves and cenotes. Fishermen are thrilled when they catch a mount-worthy sailfish, marlin or dorado. Calmer activities include kayaking or glass bottom boats. And after an exhausting day on or in the water, a nap on the beach will sound great.
