A PRISTINE BEACH WITH A REEF CLOSE TO SHORE
It’s a fun trip to Xpu Ha Beach which lies about 30 minutes driving from Playa del Carmen. We bring our boards so we can enjoy the sea and paddle to the nearby reef.
Xpu Ha (pronounce SHPOO-haa) means “Stream of two waters” in Maya. It is getting more popular with people who don’t mind making a little bit of effort to leave Playa del Carmen with its crowded beaches and make a little trip to this easily accessible beach.
The sea in front of Xpu Ha is very shallow, which makes it perfect for swimming, snorkeling and standup paddleboarding.
