“Love it so much I live here”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

The beach is wonderful, the sunsets are romantic, and the many variety of choices for dining means there is never a dull moment. The only negative would be the horrid border crossing to get back to the US, if your visiting from the US. In that case, recommend taking Mexicoach -- they'll handle all the border crossing hassles so all you have to worry about is enjoying yourself. Highly recommend first time visitors to not drive here only because of the awful border crossing. Get a RT ticket with Mexicoach to drop you off right at the Rosarito Beach Hotel, or take a cab from the border for a very reasonable price. Enjoy.

“Great Character”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

Nice place, safe and fun. Plenty of souvenir shopping around and small taco shops or restaurants to visit. Plenty of Police presence to make you feel safe but not scared.
Great place to kick back.

“Soft Sand”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Great beach for activities, drinking, eating, shopping and lounging. A lot of locals like to camp there and there is a very cool, chill vibe.

“Good surf, fun people”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Waves by the peer are pretty good, though it's a walk to get there. But the walk is fun. Many, many people just having fun on the beach. Mariachi bands travelling around from group to group. Iggy(or club Iggy, right next to papas and beer) has a cool outdoor bar. Beers are cheap for the atmosphere($25 for bucket of 10). Just chill in the sand sippin coronas with friends. Wait staff at Iggy really attentive. I think they work for only tips. If you're looking for great place to relax and make friends with your feet in the sand, this is it.
