“Must See Gorgeous "Local" Beach”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

We visit this beach every time we're staying anywhere along the Riviera Maya and every time we turn right one street too soon. It seems like they need to move the "Xpu-ha Beach" sign down to the correct road but it's always well worth the turn around we have to make. Once you turn on the correct, we noticed something different this year - a local who collects 20MXN in exchange for wrist bracelets and parking at the beach. This applies even if you tell them you're coming to eat at the beach side bar and restaurant.

We've never met any english speaking tourists at Xpu-ha and have only noticed locals, all who seem to be very nice. The service, food and drinks at the restaurant are great but the real attraction here is the beautiful beach with its pristine sand and blue waters.

I would highly recommend stopping by if you're in the area - it's a 3-5 minute ride from Puerto Aventuras and beats any beach within Puerto Aventuras, hands down.

“Private Beach Hotel Xpuha”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

Amazing beach, a must do
Shuttles from the hotel take you there every 30 min, there are a lot of coral so it is perfect to snorkle

“Perfect beach area”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

Soft sand, no rocks when entering in crystal clear water. Gentle waves, no seaweed and fish swim all around the people taking a dip. Awesome experience!

“Nice beach!”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

probably the best beach near Puerto Aventuras! my wife and I visited Xpu Ha with a rented car and that takes just about 10 to 15 minutes from Puerto. Really nice location, great sand and water, just a bit too crowded but that's probably because we went last Saturday.

If youre travelling as a couple, this place is a must, just make sure it's not a weekend.

“Remarkable Beach”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

Very white, powdery sand. No rocks. We enjoyed walks along the beach very much. Just remember to wear something on you to prevent sunburns.
