“constant peddling”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

The beach itself is great. It is picturesque and is swimmable. I didn't notice any riptides, but the current is strong as the water returns to the ocean. Be ready to be approached CONSTANTLY by locals selling their wares. You absolutely cannot relax unless you close your eyes and pretend to be asleep. There are many activities available (kayaks, paddleboards, water taxi, banana boat rides, wave runners, and more) which is a plus.

“Great Atmosphere”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

This is a great beach, depending on where you stay it is the only beach you can swim on. We own a timeshare at Cabo Villas Beach Resort, so down by the Baja Cantina you have prime real estate for laying out, plus they have a roped in area to keep the vendors at bay! Oh and there wasn't a single cruise ship the entire week - WOW!
