Good long beach that, especially at it's far ends, offers great natural beauty and fine swimming. There are some large all inclusive beach club joints in the middle that mar the general ambiance but the beach is long enough to accommodate them. The far northern...More

This is for me the best beach in all Riviera Maya, once has a recife around 50m, so plenty of tropical fish and absolutely translate water. Sand is white and absolutely no crowded. This is why is my favorite and I will repeat soon!

We really enjoy going here during the week. The weekends are very busy. We prefer less crowds. The beaches are clean, the food is good. Friendly staff. And good snorkeling if you go out to the reef. If you spend $50.00 pesos on food you...More

This beach used to be nice, laid back, and enjoyable. When we were there recently, there were no available palapas at any of the restaurants, and the people were rude. I will not be returning.

I am sure people do it. You would have to walk a long the highway. Easier to take a taxi there are lots of them in Puerto Aventuras and you can ask the cabbie to pick you up at Xpuha at a set time.

There is no shopping on Xpuha beach. There are beach bars. It is now pretty busy place as people have gotten to know it.
