Xpu Ha Beach

Easy-going charm and a soulful feel

Even during high season, Xpu Ha maintains its kicked-back charm and uncrowded feel. Xpu Ha has more locals than visitors on this beach as it is local favorite. The sand, calm surf and local restaurants are the draw, with vast beach areas the highlight. Bring your own picnic or grab a chilled cerveza and fresh seafood at one of the few Caribbean beach bars located just a short stroll from your palm tree or beach chair. On calm days, Xpu-Ha beach is an ideal spot for snorkeling, swimming, kayaking and fishing, while its soft sandy beach lends itself to such fun activities as beach volleyball, beach soccer or soothing yoga sessions.

Bottom line is: If you are dreaming of an idyllic, uncrowded stretch of perfect white sand and shimmering waters of the Caribbean, Xpu Ha Beach fits the bill. Being one of best examples of everything the Riviera Maya has to offer, this little slice of tropical paradise looks gorgeous in pictures, but even more beautiful in real life.

A Word to the Wise: Xpu Ha Beach

  • Footwear is not required in most areas for water entry
  • Snorkeling and good swimming are recommended when seas are calm
  • Public access from the highway is best at the “La Playa” entrance Xpu Ha 2
