Great place for learning to surf in the summer. Nice waves not to crowded and everyone was relaxed. There is a place to park for free at the very end of the drive in...apparently the new Beach Club owners are not well liked by the locals...I was there with a local from the hotel I was staying in Todos Santos.

Huge waves were crashing in when I was there and many surfers were taking advantage of them. The beach itself was not that beautiful, but the views of the Pacific made up for the beach.

Very peaceful, you can be there for fun, family, friends or couple. You can surf or swim or just relax, great view of the Mexican beach.

This is a very famous beach that was perfect for the kind of water play my family enjoys. There's not many beaches along this strip of the coast that are safe for swimming so this is a popular place. We went 4 times in the two weeks we were in Todos Santos. What I appreciated was that the beach has... More

The beach was absolutely awesome. The waves were just right to swim or to surf or body board. My wife had so much fun body boarding. Our chihuahua got to experience the sand and ocean for the first time and he had the time of his life. It was so great. Our hotel was right outside the beach. Two minute... More

Nice family friendly beach. Sand bottom. Good for bogey boarding and average but fun surf. Expensive and every time we went we were charged for something different like parking.

When I first camped on Cerritos Beach back in 2004 there was nothing there. Nada. Now there are boutique hotels, restaurants and bars, surf schools and even a timeshare. But the beach still goes on forever. By US standards it is uncrossed. The surfing is great, boogie boarding awesome and your can swim in it. The pale blue water is... More

We love Cerritos but ever since they have implemented all of these american rules you would expect at a beach club, it's not a place you go to relax. So many people flock there to let their kids in teh water for the first time, but if you want a private hangout, you just keep going til you get to... More

Massages, ceviche, beers, boogie boards, surf classes... Incredible place! A bit over priced specially considering it's the only place around ... That's a bit abusive but there's no better plan for the day.
