A couple visiting Akumal wants to know whether it’s safe to leave non-valuables such as towels, the mesh bag for carrying fins + snorkel, shirt or cover-up, book etc on the public beaches in the area. They also want to know whether they will need water shoes to protect their feet as they walk into the ocean. They have put up their query on tripadvisor site.

They fellow travelers suggested that they shouldn’t worry at all as the beaches are frequented by families and people like the visiting couple. The chances of occurrence of any mis-happening are also rare. The public beach areas are pretty much safe and great place to hang around. And the sand is just so soft that shoes are not necessary for walking.
