santa fe beach


what i’m wearing: multicoloured bikini top, matching bikini bottoms, beach scarf, ombre sunnies



On our second day, after a wander around Tulum Ruins – which are definitely worth a visit, by the way – we stumbled across a local beach known as Playa Santa Fe. We had actually been on the lookout for Playa Paraiso, the famous beach in Tulum, but this ended up being a lovely surprise. Here, the beach was deserted – aside from a few touts selling boat tours, a beach cafe with sunloungers (would not recommend), and a few lone palm trees providing the perfect (free!) shade to escape from the midday sun. I had been longing for a beach with pure white sand, warm turquoise waters and a wooden boat perched on the edge for that perfect tranquil view; everything that I had been looking for I found here at Santa Fe.

Of course, no visit to a tropical beach would be complete without a cute bikini, and this one is possibly the most beautiful, colourful one I have owned. Cut in a bardot style, it’s very on-trend and can also pass as a cute top. The multicoloured wavy stripes add a fun, playful edge and look so fresh against sun-kissed skin. The only coverup you need is a neutral beach scarf and a pair of round sunglasses to finish off a slightly retro tropical look.

What do you think of this beach look? Have you found your dream bikini for this summer yet?

    You look stunning in these photos! The colours are just perfect with the dreamy sea and multicoloured bikini. It really is a gorgeous design and is so flattering. And the scarf looks so elegant when it is swooshing in the breeze! xxx

    Wow, I didn’t even knew there was such a paradisaic beach in santa fee.
    And again a new place got on the top of my travel bucket list.
    This post is amazing it reminds me of a Fashion Editorial.
    The Bikini suits you perfectly and gosh you are so pretty and in shape.
    Lovel.

    with love your Amely Rose

      Oops, this is Playa Santa Fe on the Caribbean coast of Mexico! Maybe I should have made that more obvious in my post! Were you thinking of Santa Fe in New Mexico? Apologies! And aww thank you so much for your kind words – it really means a lot! <3

    Loving the bohemian vibe of this bikini, so stunning! It’s different but works so well, your figure is beautiful. I love the way you’ve posed in these photographs too!

    with love, Kat.
