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

We were the only people on this beach. Very quiet and private. The rock formations are very cool, and the tide pools are fun. The waves were too rough for us to swim, but I've heard that on calm days you can snorkel and swim. I think there was a porta potty (no toilet paper). You have to drive down... More

Once you get past the surface of all the tourist beaches, you find Las Viudas. Great place to be alone for the most part. Especially early mornings during the week. Snorkel, SUP, swim, read, gaze for whales, it's a fantastic setting.

This beach is sublime. All the area surrounding this beach is awesome... The volcanic rock formations are fascinating and amazing. Take note that when we went there (sept 2010) no service (no toilet, no lifeguard,no food no water) on site. So if you want privacy (no beach vendors) and discover a real local Mexican beach this is where you want... More
