Lots of visitors plan to spend their vacations on Ambergris Caye just for the amazing beaches that the area is known for. Therefore, most guests are delighted that Xaman Ek Retreat & Spa is situated right on the water and sand, so you won't need to go out of your way to see one of the most naturally beautiful features of the area.
Of course, since Xaman Ek Retreat & Spa was built directly on Debbie's Beach, hanging out at the beach is a popular pastime here. While it is located on Ambergris Bay, a popular tourism spot, Debbie's Beach is far enough away from the main areas that it is less crowded. While this means you will not be hunting down free space, it also means you should not be expected any amenities.
