* Coralina Beach Club
This is one of the newer, exciting beach clubs at Mamitas Beach and connected to the Grand Hyatt. You will see from the video it is quite impressive.
So what’s the difference between a Beach Club and just going to the beach?
When you choose a beach club you may have to pay a small fee for the use of the chairs and facilities but more often it is included when you purchase food and drinks. You will often also have a parking area close to the beach which is important. This is the convenient way to enjoy the beach that many smart Playenses prefer and you don’t need to bring your chairs, umbrellas and towels.
Or maybe you just want to spend the day at the beach without the amenities and noise of a beach club. I sometimes like to find a quiet spot to read a book and relax.
The truth is it is getting a little harder to find parking for your car anywhere close to the public beaches of Playa Del Carmen and Tulum. Many people now prefer to ride Cruiser Bikes to the Beach to get a little exercise, avoid the traffic, and skip the parking hassle.
This is a great way to avoid the slow traffic crawl on Tulum’s beach road during busy days. Just imagine. You could step out the door of your new condo and coast down to the beach in minutes on your bike. Your feet will be in the cool blue water while other people are still circling around looking for parking.
