A group of 8 friends visited Playa Los Cerritos as part of a tour organized by Todos Santos Eco Adventures (Amazing). In just a few hours, under the guidance of surfing instructors...all 8 of us were able to get up on our boards. Yeeehoooo!!

This is the best swimming beach in the area; others have riptides. It was pleasant enough when we were there--flat and pretty empty. The surfers are a hoot to watch! Not too many services available, though; you're kind of captive.

We had a great time at Cerritos. Because of the bluff on the north side, the beach is pretty protected from the wind. The break on the north side has an outer section, which connects on bigger waves with a fast section close to shore. There's also a left towards the middle of the beach, which looked super fast.

A perennial favorite. You can rent a surfboard for $20 a day, and negotiate to a bit less for a couple of hours. Water warm enough for board shorts and rash guard, but a shorty wetsuit would work well too. Usually a reasonable crowd in the water, occasionally some irritable locals, but nobody really nasty. Waves 2-4 feet, occasionally a... More

Cerritos is still up and running after the storm. Food is good and the beer is cold. They was still some debris on the beach but we still had a great day. The hotel on the point was pretty beat up. We have always gone up there for a drink and they were open but didn't really have a full... More

A great beach to visit when in Todos Santos. There are long boards and surfboards to hire on the beach and a beach bar to utilise. Beautiful beach with safe swimming. Perfect spot for sun-downers after a lazy day at the beach!

Quiet, beautiful, and free, everything you could want in a beach day. Only drawback is a couple of locals hawking jewelry, but once you say no, they leave you alone.

If crowds don't bother you, and great waves without a trek off the beaten path is what you're looking for, then Cerritos is your spot. You can enjoy the beach on your own towel for free, or you can pay one of the beach clubs and they'll set you up with chairs, towels, food and drinks. The surf here is... More

We loved this beach. The kids loved being able to swim all day. Minimal vendors, fantastic weather. We didn't pay for parking or go to restaurant, hotel, or bar. We brought our own picnic and gad a great time.

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!
