Just outside Todos Santos is a rather difficult to find beach of endless sand and crashing waves. You will wish you had a 4 wheel drive vehicle at times as your wheels sickeningly spin in the sometimes hub cap deep back beach area before you get to the more hard packed sand and the beach itself. We were lucky to... More

The boats launch from the beach at dawn and return in the afternoon by running up the beach on a wave. You can buy whole or filleted fish fresh from a boat.

Fun to watch the pangas race in. The road is the only reason it's not a 5. Sweet little chapel, beautiful beach and hungry (not angry) birds.

Unlike the well marked roads to big towns or cities, this was a challenge to find. Along with road construction and lack of any signage, it took us a couple of rides out to the location. But it was worth the travel. Watching the boats pull onto the beach was a skill that has to be done with experience. Plus... More

We had scheduled a whale watching trip that used local fishermen as guides and were scheduled to leave from Punta Lobo. The trip was postponed twice and eventually canceled due to high surf. Both days the surf was so high that the local fishermen refused to go out. We did have a chance to watch how the boats were set... More

This is where we came to launch a snorkel tour. It serves that purpose well enough. It was busy with local fishermen and as the only gringo couple, I felt a little out of place - although they were all fascinated and amused at the sight of me wriggling into my wet suit. When we got back I was bummed... More

There is a nice swimming area here where the Pacific won't rough you up too badly. Lots of locals here and it is actually the area where local fisherman launch and bring back their catch. There is a very long almost deserted beach

Get to Punta Lobos a little after midday for one; obviously the fresh fish at real cheap prices (3 big mackerel for 50 pesos), and two; it's great to watch the activity as the fisherman bring their boats up on to the beach. I reckon they could charge tourists just for that experience!! I have also been here in February... More

Also know as Fisherman's beach because that is where the fishermen in Todos launch their boats for the days fishing. That is also where they clean their fish, that is why the lower rating. It might be not clean enough for most folks, but it is a nice beach if you walk down away from the fisherman area. You can... More

Launched kayaks at the beach here with La Sirena Eco-Adventures and bought fresh fish from the fishermen landing in the afternoon.
