We visited Playa Los Cerritos, and must say that we loved! Quite beach, with not to much hassle from the vendors, nice breaks for beginner surfers, and best of all nice warm water!

Yes, love this beach. Great swimming, surfing, take lovely long walks along the water's edge. Nice amenities with a surf club, surfboard rentals, restaurants, and lodging.

Cerritos is fantastic! The beach stretches for quite a ways, with large expanses of sand great for sunbathing or watching surfers. The beach club offers a wide variety of options for lunch, as well as many different beers and amazing margaritas (they are strong)! The water was warm and clear, and we had a blast jumping in and out of... More

Beach has lots of branches and debris left over from the Hurricane. I'm sure it will be much nicer once its cleaned up.

The first thing we noticed about the beach was the crowd and the smell. Some locals contributed the smell to rotting tree pulp that blew in from the hurricane while others directly stated it's from a septic take that became damaged and ran down the hill from the elaborate hotel that sits on the bluff. Since we weren't really interested... More

Imagine this beach, before the large hotel on the hill, the palapas and surf shops, casitas and beer bar. When the beach was peppered with tents of local and snowbird surfers..that's when I was there. To see it grow into what it is now, and the Mexican hito land for sale all the way out to the highway is quite... More

We took a beautiful, scenic drive from Cabo San Lucas to Todos Santos. Based on the reviews on this site, I decided to find this beach. There weren't a lot of easy-to-find directions on this page so I figured I would focus on that. The entrance was a few dozen meters after kilometer marker 64 (if you are driving south).... More

We have been to Playa Los Cerritos for the past three years and we absolutely love this beach. My husband surfs while I go for a walk or read a book or get a massage. The water is a beautiful blue. This year, it is a little less pristine due to the hurricane, but it's still beautiful and lively. The... More

Great place to have a beer and great nachos or tortilla soup and watch the surfers. Or go surfing yourself. Long beach, maybe two miles, for walking. It has pretty easy access, good parking and a nice beach to lounge on. The restaurant is small & serves cold beer, has restrooms, its all you need is this part of Mexico.

Another one of the many "famous" beaches in the Todos area that is difficult to find. Took us several times to find the turn off. The beach itself still needs a lot of clean up after the Hurricane in Sept 2014. A few surfers to watch, but not as many as expected. Don't think the surf school is back open... More
