Riviera Maya Sights

Playa Xcalak

  • Beach–Sight

Fodor's Review

This remarkably tranquil strand stretches for miles, and the isolated location means you might have it all to yourself. Much of the white sand has been eaten away by past hurricanes, narrowing the beach and making strolling a chore; however, the waters are pristine and placid. As a result, this is one of the area's best spots for swimming or kayaking. Sections of the beach connect to a network of protected mangroves frequented by manatees. Moreover, the offshore reef of

nearby Banco Chinchorro is great for snorkeling, diving, and fishing. Amenities : food and drink. Best for: snorkeling; swimming.
