I've been to this beach on 2 separate vacations and hands down it's my favorite beach in the area (better in my opinion than the other Todos Santos beaches and also better than La Paz). You can rent umbrellas and chairs which is really nice and there is a grill/bar to buy food and drinks. Great to watch surfing but... More

If you buy drinks or food at the restaurant you can use their chairs, bathroom and park for free. Clean beach, close parking so great for families with lots to carry.

It you surf; board, body or boggie, then this is the place to go in the southern Baja. The beach is huge and most days you can catch a gentle curl off some modest point break. The bottom is sandy and compared to pretty rocky at Zippers in San Jose or Monuments in Cabo. As you move farther south down... More

This beach is secluded, clean, and peaceful. The shore is rather shallow at least 50 yards out and is safe for families and beginner-surfers.

Easy to get to, lots of services. We were there in the off season (July) and it was hot, the water was pleasant and not too crowded. We were advised to take the dirt path at the Surf Colony sign to park for free without registering. We did so, found the "parking" area easily with direct access to the beach,... More

This beach is beautiful especially when there are less people there. We were there in June (low season) and it is so tranquil and quiet. Even with the small crowds it's like you have the beach to yourself. Riding a horse along the beach is a great way to appreciate it.

lovely beach that goes on for miles, there is plenty of parking and other services (i.e. restrooms). But it probably gets crowded (not when we were there), and you do get the beach vendors coming every once in a while. The access road, like pretty much every one in the area, is bumpy, but doable, though it seems to go... More

It was my first time to Todos Santos area, so we did not know what to expect. As we headed to Playa Los Cerritos, I was a little nervous as our car bumped along the dirt road to get there. Wow, but what a place. It was a wonderful, uncrowded spot. Great surfing and very friendly, well run cafe right... More

Cerritos is a sandy bottom beach and it's perfect for kids. If you like to surf or you are wanting to learn, this is the perfect spot. It's about a 30 minute drive from Cabo and the road is 4 lane the entire way. It is sometimes a little chilly up the pacific so pack a sweatshirt and the water... More
