“Great beach.. no hassle”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

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!

“I almost hate writing this”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

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. This is a popular beach for locals. Do not expect any services.

“Less popular beach allows for quiet and romantic beach time.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

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 your stay will be complete. No boats, just a small bay with nice surf and room to swim or snorkel. This little beach is a real hidaway for couples.

“Beautiful secluded beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

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 a dirt road, so keep an eye out for the turn off from the highway. The drive isn't too long, and the cactus and plants on the side of the road were all very pretty. It was nice to get away from the tour boats and the crowds.

“Tucked away”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2012

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.
