This is a lovely beach, fine for swimming, and not far from Todos Santos. The local fishermen come in here and you can buy their fresh catch, and watch their effortless skill in cleaning the days haul. No services or facilities.

We purchased fish directly from the fisherman as they came to shore here. For $20.00 us we were able to buy enough fresh fish to last several days. A fun spot to visit.

Punta Lobos is a place where the local fisherman have been launching their "pangas" for 100 years or more. To watch this is an awesome experience! The "pangas" are basically a small boat with an outboad engine that might fit about 6-8 people. The first boat paddles out dragging a rope. This rope is then used to tow out the... More

Difficult to find, but neat to watch the fisherman leave in the morning. We stayed at Los Colibris and was easiest for me to run down the beach in the a.m. Finding by car is more difficult and challenging. The fisherman all tie together and fight the waves one boat at a time as they head out for a day... More

The draw about Punta Lobos is that this is where local fishermen launch and retrieve their pangas. Ya just gotta see this. Come very early to see the launch (sun-up) and early afternoon to the the retrieval. You will not be disappointed.

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
