Xanadu beach

We visited the Xanadu beach April 12, 2015 and found that the resort had been closed down. There were no activities or facilities. Pretty beach though.

This was our favorite beach. We went several times during our visit. The snorkeling is great in the canal. We went when it seemed like a nursery, and saw barracuda, pufferfish, damsels, yellow tang, and found many sea biscuits and conch shells of all sizes.

Parasailing, snorkeling, relaxing on the beach The only thing I didn't like was the crowd. There were lots of people when we were there. I just read that it might be shut down.

Make sure you came during a low tide, because the first time we visited this beach was like a dream! 50 m of nice warm watter just at the top of your ankles and them below the knees. We made fantastic pictures and were playing in the water with our son for hours.

Bought a time share here and was never able to get to use it and they cover themselves by putting you up ion a hotel inferior in location, atmosphere, room size,furnishings, Almost impossible to make contact and then given a merry run around. So much money spent and so much deceit.

It's a very quiet beach. Lovely white sand and lots of shells and some beach glass. Not very many people there. Lovely view.

Lovely beach but secluded ....be very wary of strangers. Lots of trash decorating the place and not in a good way.

This is abandoned and should be fenced off until it is purchased and restored. Unsavory characters are lurking in the area. Be very careful of your belongings if you decide to go there.

We just got back to our condo from Xanadu beach which is just a short stay from where we are staying for a couple of months. This is the second year we have stayed in this area and often walk over to Xanadu and spend an hour or more. It is a beautiful beach - no amenities and we are... More

THIS BEACH SHOULD NOT BE ATTENDED BY TRAVELERS. My mother had her purse stolen while sitting on a beach chair alongside the purse. A native was lurking behind the brush which is located right behind the beach and simply came up from behind her and took the item. HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE! This beach is basically abandoned because the Xanadu resort has... More
