The water is such a beautiful shade of turquoise and blue, darker than the carribean and gulf. The sand is a coarser sand and gets incredibly hot. Also, the view with Land's End and the rocks is unbeatable and never gets old. This is considered a swimmable beach, however, if you are used to the Gulf of Mexico or the... More

One of the only swimmable beaches around, might not be what you're looking for if relaxation is your vacation style. Prepare to be bombarded by vendors (depending what time of the year you're down, but it's getting busier year round). The best beach to party/spring break, there's plenty to do on the sand and the water and great eats nearby.... More

Good place to go and hang out on the beach and have a few beers. You have to walk down a bit to get away from the crowd. Didn't like the continuous flow of people selling the same items and also the overly aggressive restaurant people trying to get your business.

It's beautiful beach with clear water and lots of things to do. There were vendors trying to sell all kinds of stuff--all we had to do was just say "no gracias" and they left us alone. What was really annoying was a small group of drunk tourists who abused the wait staff at a beach side bar and restaurant and... More

Swimmable beach in Cabo. Red flags were out as waves were coming in a little large, however we had a blast in them. If you are not there to shop from local vendors that walk up and down beach selling their wares, do say No Gracias and walk on....if you even remotely look interested, they will not leave you alone....

If you enjoy walking the beach, this is not the beach for you. Awkward slope, coarse and shifting sand. The water is beautiful.

Mango Deck rocks! The seals and Lover's Beach and Divorce beach are a must. The arch is spectacular!
