“Easy Swimming & Soft Sand”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2013

We like this beach for the soft sand and safe swimming. It's often quiet (although weekends can be busier with locals), and there is close parking. To the right of the parking lot, there are paddle boards for rent and it's fun to explore the rocky shore line. To the left there is the lovely sandy swimming beach.

“One of the best beaches in Los Cabos!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

Great beach for swimming, walking, and beautiful vistas. The water is safe and swimmable. Plus, even if it is crowded, you can always walk a short distance to find a less crowded spot on the beach.

good for finding locals to buys fish from and also to hire cheap smaller fishing boats to go out for a few hours of deep sea fishing.

“Beach for locals”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

Beautiful swimming beach with many palapas for protection from the sun. A wooden walkway for wheelchairs. Only a few port a potties. From this beach the fishing boats leave early in the morning so the parking can be difficult.

“Walk to San Jose”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2012

Look at tide guides before you go but you can walk all the way to san jose on the beach. This is fantastic clean water and beaches. But as always watch out for the prickly sea urchins as I am told if you step on one just go directly to the doctor because you cannot just pull them out.
