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!

it would be quite a walk and you would be along a very busy dual carriage way. It is possible but probably not the best idea. The beach is free itself, but you need to pay for sunbeds etc if you use them.I hope this helps.

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.
