Like Bamburgh Beach in England, Mexico’s El Castillo provides visitors the chance to get a first-hand glimpse of a historical marvel. Located in the town of Tulum, the beach is overlooked by the ruins of the ancient Mayan port Zama. These ruins date back to as far as 200 AD, and include the main structure, the towering pyramid El Castillo.

Aside from the opportunity to walk through history, El Castillo Beach also offers an array of beach activities like swimming and kitesurfing, as well as great food and nightlife in the nearby towns.
