beach at bosque del cabo?

is there a beach at/near bdc that would be suitable for a family to swim at--that is calm water, as opposed to surf?

There are 3 beaches at the bottom of the Golfo Dulce trail, which itself is a good 90 minute hike. The first 2 are mostly for surfers, the 3rd one is where most people go to swim. It's fairly calm, but may be a little too rough for small children. You can arrange for Bosque to pick you up at an appointed time. You could also just have them drive you there and forego the hike, it's a couple dollars each way.

A ride to or from the Golfo Dulce trail beaches is $10 each way (per car). None of the beaches were what I would call "calm". There are calm water beaches in Puerto Jimenez but that's a 45-minute ride and $60 round-trip cost.

Wonder if it varies thru the year? I've always gone in May and found the 3rd beach (Pan Dulce) pretty calm, nice enough to swim in and cool off.

Also found it's better to enter on the far left of the beach than the right, the right side tends to have small pebbles that hit your feet/shins as the waves come in.
