Even though the surf was fairly calm the day I went, it was still easy to have good body surfing. Very consistent beach for body surfing.

Parking lot was full so had to find a parking spot on the street which is not easy. Beach was crowded but found a spot close to the water. Kids had a great time.

CDM is a gorgeous beach. It lies below a residential area. Get there early as parking is limited. Great beach for families. Clean bathrooms and snack bar. Good for lunch. I’ve spotted dolphin many times. Easy to swim.

Okay, I’m going to give you the inside scoop. You’re going to read a lot of reviews, but this might as well be a how-to. You don’t just want to go play in the sand. That will get you three vacation stars. I’m going to...More
