best nude beaches in Riviera Maya

Mexico is incredible, first of all. And their beaches are superb, both at the Caribbean and the Pacific Coast; they are some of the best in the World. Our condolences to Switzerland, Bolivia or Mongolia (hint: they don’t have any coast, neither good nor bad). But when it comes to nude beaches, Mexico offers incredible nude resorts and beaches where you can enjoy a paradise-like environment with all the luxuries.

We looked in detail at three of the best resorts/ nude beaches there are, which are located in the Riviera Maya, and which are for all tastes. Do you want it on the sun and fun side? There is one. Are you looking for a place where nudity leads to sensuality and seduction? Yes, there is one as well. Take a look!

Best nude beaches in Playa del Carmen, Tulum, Cancún and the Riviera Maya

Playa Sonrisa

This beach and resort in Xcalak, in Costa Maya, has so much you can do: snorkel, scuba diving, kayak, SUP, nekkid bocce, and happy hour. It is next to the Reefs of Xcalak National Marine Park, having immense beauty and natural diversity a few steps from the hotel rooms.

To arrive to Playa Sonrisa, it is best if you go to San Pedro Airport in Belize (50 Km away) instead to the Cancún International Airport (316 Km), but both are common options.

Hidden Beach Au Naturel Resort

This resort in Kantenah (between Playa and Tulum) was awarded Tripadvisor’s Traveler’s Choice in 2012 and 2020 as one of the top resorts in the country.

It is actually hidden, in the sense that it is at the edge of a mangrove jungle, reinforcing the privacy of guests. People are expected to be naked at all times, but public displays of “affection” are discouraged (actually, forbidden).

There are a lot of activities you can participate in, such as coconut painting, tequila tasting, water volleyball, cocktail class, night shows, foam parties, or Spanish lessons. What is more, you can actually organize your very own nude wedding. It holds symbolic value, so it won’t be legally binding, but they do offer this service.

Here’s a few photos, in case you’re curious:

Desire Riviera Maya Pearl Resort

Clothing optional! This resort in Puerto Morelos (between Playa del Carmen and Cancún) is built with one thing in mind: sensuality. It is a place for luxury and pleasure, to wake up your senses and to let yourself go, either in the pool, in the jacuzzi, in the suites, at the beach, or in their playroom. Their slogan in 2020 is ‘seductive and sanitized’. Take a look at their resort (yes, they own a red swimming pool):
