A fabulous beach area. The water is crystal clear. There is a path that allows you to walk alongside the beach and plenty of restaurants and shops along the way

Mahahual Beach was so beautiful, a hidden gem for sure. The food was delicious, the water is spectacular. A five minute taxi ride away from the port. This is a must see if you love the beach! Lots of shopping too.
