You pay a $4 entrance fee to go in but if you eat at the restaurant there keep your receipt and your entrance fee is refunded as you leave. The beach is quiet and beautiful. This is where the Corona Commercials are filmed. It is secluded and very few people on it. Well worth going to.

Really great beach -- park at one of the restaurants and enjoy the water, snorkeling, and people watching. Lots to do including kayaking, wind surfing, and jet skiing.

Nice beach and pretty good food for lunch right up until the moment we closed our tab. We were charged 300 pesos for three rusty, old, and torn beach chairs that were offered to us upon our arrival by the same waiter. The chairs were 100 pesos each....muy mal servicio. I will not go back to Xpu Ha.

One of the best afternoon we spent during our week long trip to Playa. A local suggested this beach and at first it was hard to find. On 307 driving towards Tulum you have to take a U-turn and get on a gravel road (X-7 or look for the RV parking sign). Its about a KM drive to the beach... More

Think of stunning beach and here it is. Great snorkelling and super surroundings. We saw rays and turtles here. The reef was quite a way out, good if you're a strong swimmer but you can rent life jackets at the end of the beach.

Liked everything - you could just swim with dolphins, stingrays, manatees which all cost extra or you could just laze around and swim through the lagoons dropping in to the various restaurants and bars which is included in the price

Excellent place but you need to get taxi. Make sure you have a ride back! If you don't, they will call the taxi for you.

All I can say is pictures do not do this beach justice. When you see dream vacations to beaches, this is what you expect. Xpu Ha is widely considered one of the best in the world and when you get there you'll see why!

The restaurant is not fancy, but it is fun and the food is pretty decent. Try the ceviche. They sometimes have live music and it just adds to the experience.
