Anyone walked from CAT to Xpu-ha beach?

Is it even possible to walk dow to Xpu-ha beach from Catalonia Riviera Maya? We like long walks on the beach and were wondering if we will be able to do such things.

It is impossible to walk along the beach south from the CAT Riveria Maya to Xpu-Ha beach.

No long beach walks from the CAT, either direction. You would need to drive down the highway to another beach to have a long walk on the beach.

Only decent beach walk would be over around the bay where the condo's are on other side of the Marina. It is a little bigger longer walk than beach by Cat. I usualy take long morning walks around the golf course before to many golfers get out. Agree with others you would not be able to walk along ocean front to Xpu Ha beach. We stayed there before & enjoyed walking that beach. Very nice stretch.

Just "stay" at the CAT-Royal Tulum instead and you can take Daily walks down Xphua beach! That's one of the reasons we stay there. :)

Take a collectival(sp) from the other side of the road by the roundabout outside the main gates, it is about 5 minutes and 15 pesos. The walk is 7 minutes down to the beach, reverse the proceedure for the way back. We do this about once a week.

Hi all, I juts got back from holidays and YES, there is a way to walk to Xpu-ha beach from Catalonia Riviera Maya. There is path through jungle and we were walking every day. Great stuff. The only problem we had was Barcelo hotels security guards. Other than that it is a beautiful beach. It is about 6 km to get through jungle, so I dont reccommend it for people who are affraid to walk long:)
