REALLY enjoyed visiting Cerritos Beach ... reminded me of what Cabo used to be. Nice big beach, surfable waves (and surf rentals), swimmable water, beach restaurant and free parking. If you want to get away from the mayham in Cabo during spring break ... this is a nice place to visit. 10 min's south of Todos Santos down a dirt... More

Great day trip! There is just enough to keep you busy when you're not relaxing on the sand or playing in the water. Parking is tricky! There are two spots that are not part of a hotel. one on the north end near the restaurant, and one just south of that- that one looks more like the end of the... More

I just love this beach! It was a nice relaxing getaway for the day just 45 minutes north of Cabo. Very friendly people, surfboard rentals, nice breaks for beginners. Great Vibe overall! Will go back for sure!

We were here four years ago and our kids loved it and learned to surf. They are older now and the waves were minimal this time of year (Feb. 2015). We just kinda lost that loving feeling that we had the first time. We have to pay to park (or spend $10 at the restaurant and remember to validate your... More

We preferred to walk or hang out on other stretches of the long beach, but Cerritos is best for swimming. The surf is less intense here and children can play in the water safely. It's "crowded" by local standards but really not bad. We left the gorgeous beach we were staying on a few times to head over to Cerritos... More

The beach is a great place for beginning surfers to go and get their wave on, but may not be the best spot for those just looking for beach lounging. There are a lot of sticks and debris on the beach still from the hurricane.

What a beautiful fun beach! Yes...it is true, if you dont surf dont bother, but if you do surf or want to learn how to surf this is the place...both of my kids learned there and this beach is amazingly fun since has great waves but shallow enough for kids! Saw more action here than in Bondi!

Beach is nothing special but I don't surf. Bare so unless you surf don't bother. The accommodations are mediocre and the places to eat are slim pickings. The restaurant at Cerritos surf club has terrible service but the food is edible. There is a new restaurant that is pretty expensive $20 pizza and $40 steak but the waiter Sergio was... More

This is an amazingly beautiful and quite place. Sitting on the beach we watched whales jumping on the horizon and baby seals jumping in the waves.
