Cool little beach that is going to become impossible to visit in the future due to the construction all around it. Not for swimming (still worthwhile!). The road is difficult but can be done with most cars IF you go slow and carefully.

This is a public/virgin beach so don't expect ANY service, no rentals no food/beverages sellers. If you want to spend a quite time bring your own umbrella, towels, refreshments and chill. Sand is not fine so make sure you have shoes to walk on the beach. A lot of construction is happening very close to the beach so make sure... More

I love this beach because it is secluded and never busy. There have been times its only been me and my dog there. Most of the time, the ocean is too rough to swim but what I love about this beach are the rock formations and tide pools. I love to find a pool to hang out in for a... More

This is a locals beach pretty nice spot. No bathrooms or garbage cans right now. The Hurricanes moved some sand around but it is still the same great little beach. The road off the highway is good and has been plowed for better access however that treatment ends where the construction company working on Twin Dolfins resort stopped the road... More

A very "ok" beach. Not my favorite, maybe due to the surrounding área that has a back view of an overpass. It's pretty and the one thing it does have is it is pretty big. Locals love to hang out there on the weekends. It's just an average type of beach…nothing great.

A beautiful little place that should remain a secret. Stunning rock formations that lead to tide pools and places to escape the summer heat.

We have been enjoying the Baja for many years, and were so happy to have found this beach! It's almost like having your own personal beach. Most times we have gladly shared it with the locals. Unlike Santa Maria or Chilenos, the party and excursion boats bypass this beach, leaving it to be enjoyed in peace and relative quiet. Swimming... More

Very pretty little beach and very secluded. You should have a 4x4 or Jeep to get to it. At times it is very private and you can often be alone. Beware of the strong currents.

We stopped here on a Sunday mid-day - the Concierge at our hotel had said this might be a good place to snorkel - however the waves were too large and intimidated our 11-year old neophyte snorkeler. We have an econobox Nissan rental car and had no problem driving down the dirt road to the beach - however, be careful... More

This is the place to go if you want to be away from crowded beaches, even during spring break. It's just you and mother nature. Amazing!
