beautiful, clean beach

Have always loved this beach. Very few vendors and very clean. You can walk for miles with no one bugging you and there is an arae that is safe for swimming. Love this beach!

I am sure that this beach has grown a bunch since being "discovered" but it is a beautiful long sandy beach with a sandy bottom that makes it easy for beginning surfers to catch (and fall off) a wave safely. The road down there is around mile marker 65 and comes up fast so beware. There is a bunch on... More

We actually paid to a few dollars to be in the surf colony which was well worth the addition money. The pool was great and when we were there, no one was around (mainly because it was hurricane season!!!). Still, it was nice to be able to get away from the crowd.

If you are someone who does not love all of the development in Cabo, and are looking for a more authentic experience, I highly recommend Playa Los Cerritos. But if you need a lot of amenities, probably not the right spot for you. We spent 2 wonderful days here, escaping the Cabo spring break scene. The first day we rented... More

This is the swim beach in Todos Santos. You'll also find vendors here and you can take surf lessons as well. The day we went it was a big surf. Nice location. Near the Cerritos Beach and Surf Club.

Great for the kids to go out and take surf lessons or boogie board, while the parents sit on the beach with a book and a drink.

A few hotels are trying to make a go of it here but don't be fooled. This is clearly an area of abandoned development. Driving in from the freeway, the natural desert/dune Flora has been cleared away leaving a desolate wide swath of dirt dotted with the odd hotel/condo. The whole area is depressing. There are much more beautiful swimming... More

If you can find it, this beach has a fun, laid back vibe. You can set up your umbrella and watch the surfers all day. Although enormous, the best swimming area is fairly small. It has its share of beach vendors and massage tables, but they are polite and will leave you alone if you're not interested. You can rent... More

Not a lot of great signage to get to the beach from the highway and there is a somewhat rough dirt road to the beach. Surf board rentals with wet suits are at the beach as well as a multitude of local masseuses. You can play in the water but more of a surfing beach that a wading beach.

Crowded beach with restaurant, drinks, entertainment, umbrellas, massage tables, people selling jewlery, bowls, blankets and fruit and renting boogie boards. Massive waves (20 feet?) for the surfer crowd. Walk beyond (not far!) all of this for uncrowded, soft white sand and stunning surf.
