Yeah, you guessed right; this is among the best things that anyone can do in Tulum. There are a lot of spectacular beaches in this area, like Paradise Beach. The ocean becomes crystal clear when it is calm, thereby allowing you to see down to the bottom without interruption. You will enjoy jumping and riding the waves when the ocean is more active. When you are on this beach, ensure that you carefully observe the flags which are signaling the water conditions. For example, when you see a black flag, it means that you shouldn’t swim. For a yellow flag, it means you should be cautious while swimming even though there is no pressing danger coming at the moment. A red flag shows that there is danger or you should be extremely cautious while swimming. Finally, a green flag indicates that the ocean is completely safe. You should have it at the back of your mind that you might not find flags on most of the remote beaches. Notwithstanding, swimming on the beach is fun.

Admire the turtles in their habitat
