Beaches for May for Riviera Maya

Xpu-ha Beach

If you want to have a go at diving or snorkelling, make sure you visit the Xpu-ha beach. Almost all of the ground beneath the water here is soft, so you won't need any protective footwear to enter the sea. There is a small selection of facilities on offer, including sun loungers, parasols and a number of water sports. You'll usually find plenty of families at this beach, due to the clean sand which is regularly raked and the clear, calm waters.

X'cacel Beach

X'cacel beach is favoured by sea turtles, which are attracted by the deep sand, minimal outer reef and lack of people. If you visit during May and you're lucky, you might catch a glimpse of a sea turtle coming onto the beach to laying her eggs. The small mounds of sand you'll find are where the turtles have buried their eggs, so be careful not to trample on them. Although there are no facilities offered here, the clear, gentle waters provide the ideal conditions for swimming and snorkeling.
