Why is Xaman-Ha Beach in Playa del Carmen one of the top beaches of the Riviera Maya?  Because it combines the quiet exclusivity of Playacar with easy access to downtown – not to mention that it is a very wide, beautiful beach which offers beachfront relaxation at its best.

Location & Name

Xaman-Ha Beach is located right where the upscale gated community of Playacar meets downtown Playa del Carmen, and it is this location that defines the atmosphere, combining the two most attractive features of lifestyle in Playa del Carmen – exclusivity and fun & entertainment.  For this reason, it is suitable that Xaman-Ha Beach has Playa del Carmen’s original Mayan name, which means “Place of the Water.”  Indeed, the name also reflects the importance and beauty of the beach itself in the community.  The ruins of the original sacred sight of Xaman-Ha are located a walk away from the beach, nestled among a patch of the area’s natural jungle within Playacar.

Beachfront Description

The beach itself offers the soft white sand and the warm turquoise water which has made the Riviera Maya so famous.  This is also one of the widest beachfront areas within the whole region, offering ample space for comfortable relaxation.  On the horizon is the island of Cozumel, the lights of which offer a nice touch at night time.  The island also offers some shelter, and the waves are very calm and gentle on Xaman-Ha beach.

Playacar – Most people who enjoy Xaman-Ha beach will also like the style of Playacar, the exclusivity of which defines the quiet relaxation to be found on the beach.  Playacar is an upscale gated community which offers very exclusive homes, villas and condos directly on the beachfront (Phase 1) or back in Phase 2, surrounding a beautiful golf course which offers an interesting and challenging game.  Most residents of Playacar can walk to Xaman-Ha beach, and those who are beyond short walking distance will enjoy an easy bike ride along nice trails shaded by tall trees.


Downtown – The other nice part about Xaman-Ha is that it is very close to downtown.  Those in the downtown area looking for a quieter beach can easily make their way over to enjoy the atmosphere of upscale resorts and residential communities.  On the other hand, those visiting Xaman-Ha beach can easily head downtown for a drink, dinner, live music and much more.

Xaman-Ha beach in many ways epitomizes the best of Playa del Carmen’s beachfront, and is an ideal balance between exclusivity and convenient access to downtown.; Mexico's Leading Network of Specialists for Finding and Purchasing Mexican Properties Safely
