This is the view one has from that terrace. Look how close that beautiful white sand and turquoise blue water is! It was windy the days I visited so we also had some pretty interesting waves thrown into the mix. By the way, this picture is not zoomed. You actually are that close to the water.
From the side of the house, one walks down this gentle path to get to the sand.
A view back up to the house.
As soon as you reach the end of that path, look to the right. This is all you see. And, most likely, all you are going to see. There are no other houses in this direction for miles.
From the covered, sun shaded, palapa that is provided by the house, one can look back to the right and get a nice view of this shapely palm. Except for the beach paraphernalia, it looks like it could be off a beach on Survivor.
And to the left, it is just a bit more built up. But remember. This is Tulum. Never a Cancun or Playa del Carmen like atmosphere or beach anyway. The people that stay in Tulum are much more laid back and quiet.
It would seem that both sides of this beach are ringed and delineated by palm trees. They provide some nice natural shade and whispering sounds in the breezes.
I mentioned before that we had some wave action while I was there. But nothing to be afraid of. In fact, a few people were taking advantage of them for body surfing and boogie boarding. I was tempted. Just a little. They were great waves for playing in. And the beach is fairly safe here. If this same waves were on the Pacific, I would not step foot in them. But here? Have at it!
