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.

One of the only few beaches on the pacific side to swim and get a good taste of the ocean. I had my first buggy board experience and am in love now. Definitely the way to kill a sunny afternoon in the best possible way. There are two places to get cool beverages. I recommend walking down the beach a... More

The day we came the beach was pretty crowded. We took a surf lesson with a guy that talked to us on the beach. He offered an hour for 50 dollars and told us we could use the board after the class as long as we wanted + he gave us an umbrella and chairs for the day. It was... More

Made to the beach on several occasions on this last trip, although the water was on cooler side, lots of people were having a great time, Sat by the beach club and enjoyed live music on both Saturday and Sunday, and you can't beat a massage with Gabby on the beach ( light green tent) Had three of them this...

Did some surfing while my wife sunbathed. I think it's $5 or so to park. You can rent umbrellas, surf boards, wetsuits, etc., from various vendors on the beach. It was a great little beach to go too.

This is one of the few popular swimming beaches along the 160 miles of shoreline between Cabo San Lucas and Magdalena Bay. Cerritos is a semi-point beach break with a gently sloping, fine sand beach. Easy entry to water without a pounding shorebreak on most days. The currents are mild, except when the surf is overhead on the outer bar,... More

I love Cerritos beach, you can safely swim, boogie board, & surf here. The reason I give it only 4 stars is because there are no trash cans or public bathrooms. Oh and the parking is limited.

I really shouldn't review this because I don't want to spoil this place! I LOVE this beach! I mean, really, why go to the beach if you can't swim in the ocean? Which is true of most of the rest of Cabo. And, although the crowds hang to the North end, there are many more miles in which one can... More

With dozens of umbrellas and people soliciting you, I've signed on to write my first review because the massage I received on the beach yesterday was just that good. If you need to work out some knots, go see Zulema, a petite woman always wearing a white polo with her name embroidered on it. I've had my share of massages... More

My favourite beach in the Cabo area. I go there several times each winter when I'm cabo for 4 months. But be careful! I was there today, April 2, 2017, and had to be rescued by the lifeguards, to whom I am extremely grateful. Waves were very big, in my experience, and I got out too far past the breakers... More
