Simply the best beach for swimming and learning to surf on the Pacific side in southern Baja. The hard-packed sandy beach is perfect for long walks. Surf is best in winter time, but even in June there was a good swell. Plenty of options to rent equipment and have a drink at the beach-bar. (not cheap any more) New beach... More

My husband and I have been to this beach the past few years, and it still remains a good time. It's a bit more commercialized - this is the first year where when we arrived, we were given a white ticket that states that a 100 pesos minimum be met at the restaurant to be able to park there. Years... More

It's all in the title! If you want surfing lessons, or to rent a surf board this is where to go. The bonus is the beach restaurant and bar. Good food and great drinks. We had live music on the sand on Sunday afternoon. Perfect!!

Took a bit of a drive to get there off the main highway, but worth it. Wide beach, with great surf. Nice restaurant there, decent food, order beer not their mixed drinks

We stumbled upon this place on our way from Todos Santos to Cabo. What a little gem - great surf spot (there was a contest happening) and great food! Will be back to stay in the future!

Was fun for surfing and also one of the only beach we visited where it was easy to go for a swim! Restaurant / bar on the beach is a good idea, but a bit overpriced compared to everything else around Todos Santos! Fun days at Cerritos!

We had a rental jeep, otherwise we wouldn't have made it. It's a ways away from touristy Cabo, plus a dirt road from the highway to the parking lots. We were confused about parking. We had to take a ticket and buy a minimum at their bar. I was annoyed by that because I brought my own water & snacks.... More

The food at restaurant was okay. The water was nice and waves would be okay for surfing. California beaches are just as nice. Long stretch of beach for nice walk.

As it is one of the few safe swim beaches in the area, it can get crowded on the weekends but that added to some of the fun as the restaurant on the beach has live music on Sunday and serves decent food. Even on a very crowded day, walking a short distance on the beach provides empty stretches of... More

Had a great time here. Not crowded and loved the view of the inn on the cliff. Easy to locate off of 19. Will definitely be coming back.
