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.

Terrible service and mediocre food. Waited 45 min just to get a waiter to take a drink order. While the bar wasn't even busy. Will never go back. Way over rated

If you are looking for a secluded pristine beach, this is NOT your spot. Because Baja's Pacific beaches are notorious for undertow, riptides and shore breakers, there aren't a lot of family friendly beaches. The secret is definitely out on this one. Several surf instructors have tents set up and accommodate all ages of surfers. At the Cerritos Beach Club,... More

If you are looking for a beach to actually swim in you need to go to Cerritos . You will see surfers there also . Great beach bar there too

This is a stunning stretch of beach where you can sit on loungers at the beach if you buy a few drinks or eat something. They give you a ticket for parking on the way in- just show your food receipt on the way out. The beach can get busy. If the vendors are slow they can continually approach you... More

Nice place to spend some time, relaxing, listening to the surf and people watching. The north side of the beach (to your right when facing the ocean) was much more crowded, but if you walk to the right you can have stretches of beach all to yourself. There were several surfers and you can rent boards, ATV's, umbrellas and chairs... More
