After reading many reviews of Xpu-ha we went, my family, and had a great time. It cost money but ultimately it was worth it. Here's the advice: Yes it's 50 pesos per person to access the beach the way we went in via taxi to main driveway. Taxi driver knew it and once paid the lady at the gate and... More

If you want a beautiful beach, this is the spot! It's nearby Playa del Carmen. By car is 25 min, you can also go by public transportation - they just drop you in one of the main entrances and you need to walk from there to the beach like 700 mts. It is a public beach but there are several... More

This is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world! White, sugar sand and majestic water! The beach clubs offer chairs and food/drink service and the staff at all were great. Showers and large restrooms make washing up easy. Great snorkeling right off the beach.

Been here before, but the hustle has got worse. I don't mind paying for a sunbed, but when I find that I have been charged twice or three times the price of other people I get annoyed. The deal is the bed is free if you spend money with us, OK, that's fine, but the figure they set has to... More

over the years we have witnessed more beach bars/clubs move into the X-Puha beach. There seems to be room for all but the remote atmosphere is gone. Lots of choices for food and clubs but lots of people too! Still one of the best beaches on this coast.

Xpu-ha is a great beach with wide open views and multi-colored, clear water. We usually come in through the Xpuha Restaurant entrance. You pay a fee (per person) at the little booth and then you drive down the dirt road about a mile. Parking is limited but not bad, seafood at the restaurant is great.Diving outfit, beach-side massage and water... More

This beach and restaurant is close to Cenote Jardin del Eden (across the road) and the perfect spot to go for lunch and walk. Nice clear colored waters with beautiful white sand.

Mostly known by the locals and a bit off the beaten path. Nice beach with white sands, at 80 pesos per person entry. Pretty views
