Some of the most beautiful beaches in the world can be found on the Caribbean Sea from Cancun down to Belize.
The other day we tried out a new little spot.
We drove a whole 9 minutes from our home & met up with some friends in Paamul.
Paamul is a small bay snuggled into the coastline that pretty much only locals come and enjoy. It does not get crowded with tourists and fancy amenities. It does have the right ingredients for pristine tropical beach hideaway feel -a natural landscape complete with white sand, coral reef, tropical fish, and turquoise water. (As for the water, I cannot describe it just as turquoise. There are hues of blue, turquoise, green and a dozen shades in between.)
There is a small neighborhood where ‘snow birds’ park their trailers under palapa roofs and enjoy several months of a simpler pace of life. There are also cabanas for rent.
Paamul is kind of a hidden little gem in that most of the crowds of tourists do not venture outside of Playa del Carmen or off their resorts. If you are looking for a day at the beach stripped down to the basic recipe of sun, sand, reef and palms then you will savor this spot.
