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.

For better or worse, the surf coming to the Todos Santos area is very, very, dangerous. There are posted beaches discouraging swimming. 'Rogue' waves from the north Pacific can "hump up' and sweep people off beaches. Playa Los Cerritos is in the 'wave shadow' of a spit of land and is one of the few really same beaches on the...

If you like to lay on a beach that feels like no one else is around for miles, you can easily find a place to get comfortable here and be free from the hustle and bustle that exists on the north end of the beach. Vendors are less likely to bother you in this southern part of the beach. If... More

Cerritos is a swimable/surfable beach by Todos Santos. There is a restaurant/bar here as well. Keep in mind that the Pacific side is colder and less turquoise than its' neighbor to the south, Cabo, and much of Todos Santos area beaches are just flat out unsafe-even for our born and raised beach family. So, we had a nice afternoon at... More

This is a great, long beach and a ton of fun for body surfing. We should have bought some short boards at Walmart as the waves were perfect. Lots of people surfing (I think you can rent there). Sand was soft and water wasn't really cold once you were used to it. The dirt road to get there is a... More

The beach was great for swimming, surfing. The Cerritos surf colony was a wonderful way to end a day at the beach. Delicious nachos and tasty drinks, while listening to a fabulous band, playing Bob Dylan style of music. The pool and hot tub were very nice. All accessible to us and we were not even staying there.
