The surf is much calmer on this beach than the rest of Cabo San Lucas. The beach is very swimable and the sand is soft. It is a little crowded near the restaurants. Just walk down closer to the marina for plenty of free space....More

Enjoyable beach with plenty of water sports & plenty of restaurants. We had lunch at SUR Beach House. Park at the Shopping Center (20 Pesos for 4 hours ) and then walk for 10 to 15 minutes.
