Beach is nice and rentals are reasonable. Food and drink at the Beach bar is only so so and extremely expensive for what you get.

Great water and surf. It's a little scruffy around the edges, but friendly, fun swimming and wave riding. Water is shallow for a long way out.

Love this beach! It is easy to walk around, the sand is very easy on the feet. The waves work for boogey-boarding and surfing, but it is pretty easy to swim too. I loved the music that the beach club had on Sundays.

Amazing surf, beautiful sandy beach. great place to relax on the way to Todos Santos. Road to the beach is all sand and a bit sketchy in places.

Most of the beaches in the area have rough surf and almost violent waves most of the time. This was the only area where you can actually walk on the beach and go in the water in relative calm.

Beaches are suppose to be open to the public in Mexico yet the owners here charge you to park. Very sad because its a great beach.

Outside break was worthy of a surf competition while we were there (January), while the inside whitewater was a great place for lessons and beginners.

My husband loved this beach, which was great for novice surfing. Wasn't my cup of tea as it was very windy, crowded, and had dogs running everywhere (one of my kids is terrified of dogs.)

A good place for newbie surfers. You can get lessons on big boards, rent boards pretty cheaply, and get out and get used to the water. More experienced surfers can enjoy bigger waves a bit further out. Can get windy in the afternoon, and also potentially crowded. Usually a good relaxed vibe, but occasional ugly Americans pop up believing it's... More
