This beach resort area is the ultimate in sad. The apartment building on the beach is empty and abandoned. Consequently the area is run down, unkept, garbage everywhere and just gross. There is a burnt up boat lounging there and one lone lady with a barely standing table trying to sell her wares. It is the saddest thing. Don't bother with this beach - huge disappointment.

Beautiful beach but everything around is closed so bring your cooler with some refreshments. One good thing you'll have lots of room.

Wow - it doesn't seem that long ago when me and my girlfriend ended up at one of those timeshare lunches/talks here and I almost considered buying since I was going to Freeport every summer back in the mid-80's!! Just reading these recent comments is so sad. I read that this is now a public beach, but I remember when she and I were with some locals here one night and the police harassed us about being there - we thought we were going to jail (LOL)!!

We spent our honeymoon in the Xanadu nearly 25 years ago (and the building was pretty desolate and in disrepair back then, although our suite was very nice and comfortable), but we were really hoping to spend our 25 year anniversary there and are very very sad to see it's closed. Wish someone would buy it and re-open - it's such a gorgeous property and the beach is spectacular! Fond memories there.

Was really sad to see that the "Xanadu" itself had closed & their beach & facilities were in disrepair! We have fond memories of the place when it was busy and happening!! But, the beach outside of the resort is still beautiful and large. We noticed it was mainly locals & there was one little lady selling her hand made jewelry by the sea. She was not pushy. At low tide you can walk/wade out very far. It's like a giant swimming pool. We've also done some great snorkeling in the past there!
