Tulum Beach Clubs
Tulum has no shortage of nightclubs, but what if you want to party during the day? Or even just go to a chilled place with vibey music to enjoy the beach? Here is a comprehensive list of the best beach clubs in Tulum for your convenience. So let’s take a look!
Taboo is a Mediterranean restaurant and beach club. They take pride in their authenticity and fresh food. In line with their ideology that simplicity is the ultimate sophistication, the architecture and décor are described as eclectic glamorous minimalism.
One of their main goals is to provide an experience that gives the senses something to enjoy; aroma, beauty, relaxing music and delicious flavours in their food and cocktails. They don’t only serve Mediterranean food, though. If you are looking for something a little fishier, they are pretty well known for their seafood too!
Taboo is positioned right on the beach with multilevel decks to enjoy the magnificent view. They like to play contemporary music but also keep it fresh with an intriguing variety of other genres.
Bagatelle is a restaurant with a festive French vibe. The inspiration for Bagatelle comes from the saying joie de vivre (translated to the joy of living). It has an open-air feel with a thatch, blue and white theme. It combines luxury with dancing, and that is all you need in a place, right? Oh, and great food, of course!
The restaurant uses fresh ingredients and stays true to the French Mediterranean style of food. They have a generous swimming pool, surrounded by lounge beds and chairs. And the beach is right on the front porch, also outfitted with beach chairs and comfy lounge beds.

The DJ plays beats into the night, so you can spend the whole day and night here if you feel Tantra’s vibe.
We’ve mentioned Vagalume in our article on Tulum nightclubs. This club is very well known for its giant hand sculptures dotted around. Even as you enter from the road, you are already surrounded by a feeling of exclusivity.
To get inside the club you must pass through a tunnel made of trees, thatch and other rustic elements (Tulum’s party venues do like their tunnels). It feels like you are entering a secret society.

Ahua beach club
Ahua’s main claim to fame is its magnificent giant piece of architectural art called Ven A La Luz. Which means Come to the Light (created by the South African artist Daniel Popper) and often referred to as the wooden lady. The sculpture represents the connection between man and nature, which is exactly what Ahau is all about.
Ahau is an eco-friendly resort with the front facing the beach and the back nestled in the jungle. The beach club is pet-friendly and allows kids for free if they are under the age of eleven.
