Just a 2.5 - 3 hour drive from Los Angeles and you we had a great time during the holiday (4th of July) weekend. Surprisingly the beaches weren't overly crowded and the place was safe and fun. We stayed at an Air BnB place close to the beach which was affordable and logistically in a great location near town and... More

We were visiting this past week and on Sunday, while eating one of our cars was broken into, took all our belongings, documents etc. Made police report, but unless you have a witness nothing will be done. We asked others in the area and were told that many cars have been stolen and broken into. I would not recommend you... More

This beach is the crown jewel of Rosarito. The entertainment is equally exciting. The Rosarito Beach Hotel and Papas & Beer are right there on the edge. The beach is groomed daily, i.e. the garbage and seeweed is removed daily; which means sand flies are few and far.

Rosarito Beach is a little jewel on the pacific ocean that many more people need to experience. Only 30 minutes from San Diego and minutes from Tijuana and Ensenada. Great restaurants, shopping, sight seeing, adventures, and attractions. Clean, safe and get ready to have some fun. Great for weekends or living year round. The people are friendly and very helpful.... More

Could have been a relaxing a beach but there are too many people trying to sell you their wares to make it relaxing. Pretty beach but be prepared to turn people away

The water is cold, but the beaches are pretty. Much like a socal beach. Be careful when going out because there can be sea urchins in the area. I like the beaches in front of Las Gaviotas for watching the surf break and it is a fun spot!

We loved the restaurants there and the Mexican art. Every time we drive to Mexico we buy some things for our house and the yard. The drive down from Bonsall was not bad, took about 1-1/2 hours. The wait to come back was only an hour at the border.
