Generally Cerritos beach isn't very busy. At low tide you can walk for miles from one end to another with stops along the way for a Margarita. There are a couple of spots that have rocks near the south end that require a little climbing...More

I had the pleasure to stay in a condo on Playa Cerritos. The beach is very nice, with several km of beach front. It is not busy as most of the developments along the beach are condominiums. Therefore there are not a lot of tourists...More
