The Best Tulum Beach Clubs You NEED to Visit In 2024

Having lived in the Riviera Maya if there is one question I get asked often (especially on Instagram), it’s about the best Tulum beach clubs to visit.

Tulum has become synonymous with laid-back luxury and breathtaking beaches. The Tulum Beach Club selection in this bohemian paradise doesn’t disappoint. Picture yourself lounging on a comfortable sunbed with your toes in the warm sand while sipping a refreshing cocktail.

The Best Beach Clubs in Tulum in 2024

From stylish hangouts with picturesque views to hidden gems tucked away in the jungle, with the help of my fellow travel bloggers, I’ve curated a list of the absolute best Tulum beach clubs that will make your Tulum experience unforgettable. As much as I loved living in Playa del Carmen and visiting their beach clubs, Tulum’s beach club game is on another level!

Whether you’re looking for a vibrant party atmosphere, serene relaxation, or delicious culinary delights, these Tulum beach clubs have something for everyone. I’ll share insider tips on each spot, including the must-try dishes and signature cocktails that will tantalize your taste buds.

Quick Tip: While I update the blog post roughly every 6 months, things can quickly change in Tulum so for the most up-to-date information on pricing it’s best to reach out to the beach club directly to book your spot and confirm the current cost of a day pass with them.

  • Vibe: Lively and sophisticated with a party atmosphere, offering Mediterranean cuisine and artisan cocktails.
  • Best Times to Visit: Sunsets for stunning views and a vibrant atmosphere; late afternoon into the evening for the best experience.
  • Dress Code: Smart beachwear during the day; chic and elegant for evening parties.
  • Reservations Needed: Highly recommended, especially for beach beds and dinner.

Situated in the heart of the Hotel Zone, Beach Club is one of the top Tulum beach clubs for luxury meets boho-chic, with just a hint of wild.

As soon as you walk in, it’s like entering a tropical daydream. We’re talking plush day beds, cabanas, and an infinity pool that blends into the Caribbean Sea. I mean, this place knows how to make an entrance!

Located at kilometer 6.5, Taboo Beach Club Tulum is conveniently surrounded by iconic accommodations like Ana y José and Be Tulum, making it an accessible retreat for anyone looking to indulge in the quintessential Tulum experience.

At Taboo Beach Club, the ambiance is an eclectic mix of rustic elegance and modern sophistication, offering an unparalleled setting to witness breathtaking sunsets. This Tulum club prides itself on delivering an energetic atmosphere where the bohemian spirit of Tulum shines through in every detail, from the wooden lounge chairs scattered across pristine white sands to the rustic cabins that echo the area’s natural beauty.

Culinary enthusiasts will revel in Taboo Beach Clubs’s Mediterranean-inspired menu, which highlights the freshest regional ingredients to create a symphony of flavors. Whether it’s the premium seafood selections or the meticulously prepared meat cuts, each dish is a testament to the club’s commitment to gastronomic excellence.

The vibe at Beach Club Tulum is electric, particularly as the sun sets and the DJ takes over. It’s a feast for the senses, and I can’t think of a better place to let loose in Tulum. Whether you’re up for some daytime lounging or night-time partying, Taboo has got you covered.

But what truly sets Taboo Beach Club apart are its unique offerings, such as live shows, DJ sets, and the exotic Turkish Xisha Experience, all designed to encapsulate the boho-chic vibe of Tulum. For those planning special events, Taboo’s elegant bohemian setting provides the perfect backdrop for weddings, corporate gatherings, and celebrations of all kinds.

Of course, Taboo is on the pricier side. I’d say you’re looking at around $75- $150 USD per adult minimum and more during high season. You must book in advance during the high season, especially if you want a bed.

Operating daily from 11:00 am to 01:00 am, Taboo Beach Club can get pretty packed so I would strongly recommend reserving your spot ahead of time. Especially during high season and weekends. Prices can change quickly so you will need to ask about cover charges when you reserve.

11 Tulum Beach Clubs You NEED to visit

Once owned by Pablo Escobar, this mansion-turned-resort Tulum beach club is the brainchild of NYC art dealer Lio Malca.

If you want to hold a lively Tulum beach club party at night, don’t forget to consider Custom Outdoor Neon Signs to add a more special atmosphere to your party. You can customize it with any party theme, pattern, or club logo, and these neon signs can be tied to a fence outside, placed on a table, or hung from a tree!

As you’d imagine, the interior of Casa Malca is basically a work of art in itself. Walking through the lobby, you’ll notice an interesting mix of boho design and contemporary art pieces — make sure you don’t miss the black & white Keith Haring bar, Instafamous Hanging Couch, and Chandelier Room!

The eye candy continues as you make your way out to the beach.

Located on some of the most famous beachfront in Mexico’s Quintana Roo state, has the perfect mix of colorful, woven Mayan hammocks, rustic teepees, and beach beds.

The vibe is tropical-sexy all the way — exactly what you’d expect from Pablo’s former home.

Looking for some Tulum beach swing photos? Casa Malca, of course, has those too. Stroll out to the beach, past the labyrinth gardens, and you’ll also find some beach swings just waiting for you to find your inner child on.

Day passes cost $160, which covers your entry with $110 USD of that going towards food/drink credit, with parking being an additional $10 USD. Casa Malca has three restaurants: Philosophy, Ambrosia, and the beachside Head of a Mad Man, named in homage to a Jean Michele Basquiat painting. Please be aware that prices do change from season to season, so it’s best to book ahead of your visit and confirm the current pricing directly with Casa Malca.

While inside, you also have access to all three pools at Casa Malca, including the underground pool, some areas of the spa, the showers, and the Rooftop Terrace to enjoy the amazing Tulum sunset.

  • Vibe: Eco-conscious with a laid-back, party atmosphere. Known for its full moon parties.
  • Best Times to Visit: Full moon parties for a unique experience; early evenings for a relaxed vibe.

  • Reservations Needed: Yes, for dining and special events like full moon parties.

is one of the most popular beach clubs in Tulum, situated within a sustainable boutique hotel along Mexico’s Caribbean Sea. The Papaya Playa Project prides itself on its sustainable approach and is known as one of the artsiest eco-resorts in Tulum.

Located just a few miles away from the center of Tulum, this beach club is carefully blended into the surrounding jungle and comes with an artsy decor that adds to the special atmosphere of the place. Guests can not only come here for a fun night out but also stay here: the property features rustic cabins and cottages with incredible views of the Caribbean Coast or the lush tropical jungle that surrounds the property.

While this is one of the busiest Tulum beach clubs during weekends, it’s well worth a visit, as you will be treated to nice music and a chill vibe. Upon the entrance, guests get a wristband, on which they should load the money to be able to buy drinks and food at the bar. The entrance to the Papaya Playa Project changes depending on the season. They generally ask each person for a minimum consumption of $1000 mx (around $50 USD). But I’d strongly advise you to call and book in advance to confirm the current pricing with them directly.

This Tulum beach club also hosts a full-moon party once a month with live music and DJs from all over the world.

What’s cool about this place is that the popular Tulum ruins are less than a mile away! This means that you can easily beat the crowds if you get up early and head to the historic site early in the morning.

Daria from the Discovery Nut

  • Vibe: Bohemian and relaxed with a focus on health and wellness.
  • Best Times to Visit: Morning to midday for a peaceful experience; lunchtime for the freshest menu options.
  • Dress Code: Casual and beachy; wellness attire welcomed.
  • Reservations Needed: Not typically required, but check ahead for special events.

If you’re looking for Tulum beach clubs off the beaten path in the famous Hotel Zone, you’ve got to check out . Unlike your typical beach club with its cocktails and DJ beats, Raw Love is like a little oasis of tranquility focused on health and well-being. This spot has seriously got the whole wellness vibe down!

As soon as you walk in, it’s like stepping into a bohemian dream. Think dream catchers, hanging plants, and comfy lounging areas, all built with natural materials. It’s an Instagram haven, but beyond that, it’s genuinely a place where I felt like I could unwind. Perfect for a morning yoga session or meditation — and yes, being a yoga teacher, I couldn’t help but strike a few poses with the ocean as my backdrop.

But it’s the food where Raw Love shines. The menu is entirely plant-based, focusing on raw foods, hence the name. From superfood smoothie bowls to vegan sushi rolls, the food is as delicious as it is nutritious. I personally can’t get enough of their raw chocolate avocado mousse. If you’ve been indulging in too much vacation food (as we sometimes do), this is the perfect place to get back on track.

Pricing is a bit on the higher end, even for Tulum, but it’s worth it. I’d say expect to spend around $25-$35 USD per person if you’re going for a meal and a drink.

All in all, is not just another spot to visit in Tulum; it’s an experience. Whether you’re looking for a serene corner to work on your novel or a nutritious refuel post-adventure, this place has got it all. It’s the kind of spot that leaves you feeling better than when you arrived, and who doesn’t want a slice of that on their travels?

  • Location: Located in front of Ahau Tulum Beach, Tulum Beach, 77500 Tulum, Q.R., Mexico
  • Opening Times: Typically, 9:00 AM – 6:00 PM. It’s advisable to check directly with Raw Love for any changes to their operating hours.

  • Vibe: Chic and vibrant, with a laid-back atmosphere perfect for beach lounging and enjoying the ocean views.
  • Best Times to Visit: Afternoons for a sun-soaked lunch or early evenings to catch the stunning sunset views.
  • Dress Code: Beach chic with a touch of elegance. Casual during the day, with a more polished look for dinner.
  • Reservations Needed: Recommended for dining, especially if you wish to secure a spot with the best views.

As you enter , you’re greeted by a modern, rustic setting decked out with wood accents and a lovely open-air dining area. It’s the kind of spot that invites you to sit back and soak in the views. Having spent a good amount of time sailing, I’m always drawn to places that seamlessly blend the natural beauty of the ocean with a welcoming atmosphere, and nails it.

But let’s get to the heart of the matter: the food. With a Mediterranean-focused menu, you can expect a lot of seafood, fresh salads, and tantalizing tapas. I went for the seafood paella, and it was a delicious medley of flavors that transported me right back to the coasts of Spain. Don’t even get me started on the tapenade and fresh bread they served as a starter; it’s a simple dish done exceptionally well.

What caught my eye was their cocktail menu, teeming with local ingredients and unique blends. I tried the Tulum Sunset, a mix of tequila, lime, and a dash of something secret that I couldn’t quite put my finger on.

It’s worth noting that the price point at is one of the pricier Tulum beach clubs, but nothing outlandish. Expect to spend around $57-$100 USD per person if you’re planning to enjoy a full meal and a cocktail or two. Honestly, for the quality of the food and the serenity of the setting, it’s a fair trade-off.

While the spot is perfect for a romantic dinner or a catch-up with friends, it’s also family-friendly. As someone who’s traveled extensively with a toddler, I can attest that welcoming vibe extends to the youngest among us.

From the ambiance to the cuisine, everything about this place is designed to make you feel like you’ve stumbled upon one of Tulum’s best-kept secrets. So go ahead, treat yourself to a little Mediterranean magic by the Caribbean Sea.

  • Best Times to Visit: Evenings are ideal to experience the vibrant nightlife and live DJ sets. Weekends for the liveliest atmosphere.
  • Dress Code: Elegant and trendy. While beachwear is common during the day, evening attire leans towards smart casual or club chic.

Nestled in the bustling Hotel Zone, isn’t just a restaurant; it’s an experience that comes complete with a beach club that deserves as much attention as its stunning menu. This place serves up Latin American culinary mastery in an environment that’s an Instagram dream come true.

Picture modern art pieces and rustic elements, all wrapped up in lush greenery. It’s where the high-end culinary world meets beachside glam, making you feel like you’ve walked into a sophisticated oasis. Definitely consider dressing to impress; this place is worth it!

Let’s talk about the beach club aspect for a moment because it’s a facet of that often gets overshadowed by its culinary prowess. The beach area is an elegant extension of the restaurant itself, featuring plush loungers and daybeds that invite you to relax under the Caribbean sun. You get that perfect blend of natural beauty and man-made luxury.

Trust me, the beach club vibe here complements the dining experience beautifully, creating an all-around extravagant day out. It’s not just about dining; it’s about experiencing the best of Tulum’s beach life, but with an opulent twist.

As for the food, takes you on a culinary tour through Latin America, spanning from Mexican to Peruvian to Argentinian delights. During my visit, the grilled octopus stood out as a winner. And don’t worry if you’re plant-based; their vegetarian options are far from an afterthought and equally mouth-watering.

Moving on to the cocktails, they deserve a special mention. The drink menu features classic favorites along with RosaNegra originals that you won’t find anywhere else. Take my word for it, the Mezcalita de Rosa is a must-try. Its smoky flavor paired so well with my meal that it felt like a culinary match made in heaven.

Now, let’s talk finances. A visit to is a luxurious affair and is priced accordingly. Between the beach club access, a sumptuous meal, and a round of cocktails, expect to shell out around $75-$150 USD per person. But let’s be real: for a day of gourmet dining and beachside lounging in one of Tulum’s most stylish spots, it’s worth the splurge.

Best Tulum beach club

By Anni3carter – Own work, CC BY-SA 4.0

If you’re looking for a beach club that will pamper you while inspiring your home’s interior design, then head to one of the best beach clubs in Tulum at Habitas (located at the start of the Zona Hotelera).

Known for its eco-chic decor, natural palapa roofs, private white-sand beach, and jungly atmosphere, Habitas invites the sustainable traveler to come and rest and reflect. Even if you aren’t a guest here, you can still enjoy all that Habitas has to offer. You can eat at their delicious open-air restaurant led by Chef Horatio for a full-on gastronomic experience with fresh, local, and organic ingredients from the area.

To access their plush lounge chairs and ocean-front turquoise pool, you can have their Day Pass which currently costs $75 and $100 during high season. This grants access to the beach club and the same amount as Food & Beverage credit. Which, to be fair, is fairly easy to do at the Moro restaurant at Habitas because their menus are on the pricier end (but totally worth it). So if you’re not staying there, you could splurge on a nice meal while getting the perks of Habitas as if you were a guest. Habitas also serves up the best in mixology. Imagine spending a day by the pool, secluded amidst the jungle, with the Caribbean Sea at your feet and a mezcal cocktail in hand. Sounds like a pretty incredible way to spend the day, right?

So whether you’re road-tripping the Yucatan Peninsula and checking off the sights or staying in Tulum for a few days, you won’t regret taking a day off and treating yourself to the natural wonders at the Habitas Beach Club.

11 Tulum Beach Clubs You NEED to visit

Situated along Tulum’s well-known beach strip lies Nomade Tulum, an upmarket hotel and beach club with sophisticated boho vibes, great cocktails, and a private beach area that is cordoned off from the public.

Upon entering Nomade Tulum, visitors are led down what feels like a path in a tropical forest, through the upscale outdoor tents, and down to the fine white sand and crystal blue sea that Tulum has become synonymous with. After settling down in their very own private beach area, guests can make themselves comfortable on one of the numerous cushion-like sunbeds and order their favorite cocktail before taking a dip in the sea. ‘Violet’ comes highly recommended, especially for gin lovers!

The Nomade Tulum beach club is also home to a beachfront restaurant, La Popular. La Popular offers a variety of incredibly fresh seafood dishes, serving daily catches delivered by the local fishermen. It’s worth noting that Nomade Tulum is a cashless hotel, so be sure to bring along cards to cover any expenses.

The location encourages a sense of holistic well-being, with unique attractions like a gratitude tent, as well as regular yoga classes. Meanwhile, the indoor restaurant Macondo features a plant-based menu served in a Moroccan-style dining area designed to nourish both body and mind.

Whether a guest of the hotel or not, visitors will leave Nomade Tulum’s beach club with full bellies and happy hearts, with memories of a beautiful day at the beach.

The music is chill here during the day, making for a very laid-back vibe. They often have parties on the weekend, so be sure to check their socials to see what’s going on.

How To Get To Tulum’s Best Beach Clubs

If you’re in Tulum town and want to visit the beach clubs, there are several transport options available to get you there. Each method varies in terms of convenience and cost. Here’s a straightforward guide to your choices for making the trip from town to the beach.

Biking: For the eco-conscious and those who love a bit of exercise, renting a bike is a fantastic choice. It’s about a 20-30 minute ride to the beach, depending on where you’re headed. This is not only a green way to travel but also lets you enjoy the journey at your own pace. Just remember to drink plenty of water, especially on the way back after soaking up the sun or sipping cocktails by the beach.

Renting a Car: Seeking flexibility and the freedom to explore at will? Renting a car might be your best bet. This option is perfect for those who plan on beach-hopping or exploring beyond the immediate area. Having your own vehicle means you’re not at the mercy of fluctuating taxi prices or public transport schedules. The only downside is that one of your group will need to stay sober to drive.

Renting a Moto: If you prefer zipping around with the wind in your hair, consider renting a scooter. It’s an exhilarating and efficient way to navigate the sometimes congested roads, offering a sense of freedom and adventure. Safety first, though—make sure you’re comfortable riding, always wear a helmet, and skip this option if you are planning on spending the day sipping Mojitos!

Colectivos: These shared vans are a budget-friendly and authentic option. They run between Tulum town and the beach area, offering a glimpse into local commuting. Though less frequent than taxis, colectivos are a great choice if you’re not in a rush and want to save some pesos.

Taxis: Taxis are readily available, offering direct and convenient rides to your beach destination. However, it’s wise to be prepared for a wide range of prices.

From my personal experience, taxi fares have skyrocketed—from a mere 50 pesos for a beach trip back when I first moved to Playa del Carmen, to anywhere between 500 to 4000 pesos now.

Given this, I’d generally recommend avoiding taxis unless necessary. If your beach day includes indulging in drinks, consider booking accommodation nearby to skip the commute or designate a sober friend to take the wheel if you’ve rented a car.

Traveling from Afar: If your journey starts in Playa del Carmen or Cancun, make sure to check out my dedicated posts on navigating your way to Tulum from these locations. They’re filled with tips and tricks to ensure a hassle-free travel experience.

A Bit of Advice: No matter your mode of transport, planning ahead is key, especially during peak times or if you’re aiming to catch a sunset at one of the beach clubs. Tulum’s charm is its laid-back vibe, but a little foresight can save you time and trouble, letting you focus on the beauty and relaxation that await by the sea. Most of the Beach Clubs in Tulum do have parking so its worth enquiring about parking when you make your reservation.
