Xcalak Beaches

Unlike any other beach in the area in a little known destination

Xcalak beaches are a combination of beach grass, white sand, and coconut groves. The rustic ambiance and diverse environment is not what everyone is looking for, but it fits the bill for some. Local residents of this remote town are not looking to convert the natural beauty of this area, nor do they focus on beach activities. Fishing and diving is their thing, and the beach is just a wonderful place to start your adventure. The entrance to the sea is a small marine garden with sea grass and marine life thriving in the calm waters protected by the Mesoamerican Reef. Beach clubs have not made it this far south giving people a tranquil and quiet area for relaxation and great views.

Active beaches with fly fishing, scuba diving and snorkeling

The main activities off the beaches of Xcalak are fly-fishing, scuba diving and snorkeling. The undisturbed shores of the Mexican Caribbean make this area perfect for water sport enthusiasts looking for a grand slam, untouched coral reefs and great colors under the water. The beach is a place to relax at the end of the day, listening to the water, looking out over the horizon and just enjoying the quiet space after an active day. Being a sustainable area with only alternative energy, stars are out in full force and a great way to end your evening.
