I love this beach because it is secluded and never busy. There have been times its only been me and my dog there. Most of the time, the ocean is too rough to swim but what I love about this beach are the rock formations and tide pools. I love to find a pool to hang out in for a... More

This is a locals beach pretty nice spot. No bathrooms or garbage cans right now. The Hurricanes moved some sand around but it is still the same great little beach. The road off the highway is good and has been plowed for better access however that treatment ends where the construction company working on Twin Dolfins resort stopped the road... More

A very "ok" beach. Not my favorite, maybe due to the surrounding área that has a back view of an overpass. It's pretty and the one thing it does have is it is pretty big. Locals love to hang out there on the weekends. It's just an average type of beach…nothing great.

A beautiful little place that should remain a secret. Stunning rock formations that lead to tide pools and places to escape the summer heat.

We have been enjoying the Baja for many years, and were so happy to have found this beach! It's almost like having your own personal beach. Most times we have gladly shared it with the locals. Unlike Santa Maria or Chilenos, the party and excursion boats bypass this beach, leaving it to be enjoyed in peace and relative quiet. Swimming... More

Very pretty little beach and very secluded. You should have a 4x4 or Jeep to get to it. At times it is very private and you can often be alone. Beware of the strong currents.

We stopped here on a Sunday mid-day - the Concierge at our hotel had said this might be a good place to snorkel - however the waves were too large and intimidated our 11-year old neophyte snorkeler. We have an econobox Nissan rental car and had no problem driving down the dirt road to the beach - however, be careful... More

This is the place to go if you want to be away from crowded beaches, even during spring break. It's just you and mother nature. Amazing!

While this beach is small... it is huge with character and quiet. Which means it's about as close as you can get to a private beach in Cabo. But if you have a standard rental car or suv, you're NOT going to like the road (it's more like a creek bed) that leads from the highway down to the beach.... More

Although the road is a bit rough, and I would recommend a 4x4 auto or pickup to get from highway to the beach, this is the place to go if you want to avoid all the tourists. Take a BBQ, bottle of good wine, or cold drink and enjoy the wonderful surf and beach. Take an umbrella for shade and... More
