No frills beach but it's one of the only places you can actually get into the water in the Los Cabos area. It's about 45 mins away from cabo and kinda hard to find, but keep our eyes peeled the beach club/restaurant will give you a table, chairs, and umbrella if you don't bring your own cooler. If you have... More

No longer a secret - this is a great surf destination with an old-school feel - a piece of history with great views.

you can park for free at the north end, or drive in and pay $5, but you can get that in a credit at the bar/restaurant. You don't need to bring anything; everything from towels, to chairs, to surfboards are available to rent. You can take surf lessons or get a massage on the beach. Nice place. be careful of... More

Sandy bottom, clear warm waters. Excellent for surfing (Beginners and advance), good body boarding waves. Excellent for both couples and families. Close to Todos Santos, nice town with great restaurants!

Great surfing, big flat sandy crescent beach, free beach chairs with umbrellas (if you are buying cervezas), great sunsets, less crowded than locations closer to Cabo, cheap massages on beach, horse back rides, fewer (but not none) beach vendors, and a low cool breeze. Only downsides are that it is a one hour drive from Cabo and the parking sucks.... More

Playa Los Cerritos is a nice beach at the north end of Cerritos Bay, south of Todos Santos. The focal point tends to be the Cerritos Beach and Surf Club, but it is NOT the only way to get to the beach. The good, took my daughter and granddaughter so they could swim in the Pacific, we are from Seattle.... More

Great crystal clear water. No crowds. The sea breezes feel so healthy, too. Nature here is unspoilt.

Playa Los Cerritos is a fun beach with lots of activities. You can relax under an umbrella and order food and drinks from the restaurant located on the beach or ride horses/surf. There is something at this beach for everyone to enjoy.

We stopped here on our way back from Todos Santos. We had a small group of people with us. On one end there are a couple of hotels and some palapas. People were swimming in the beach at the end of it. There were a couple of people walking down the road with their surfboards. There is also some construction... More

Cerritos has the best surf on the Pacific side is southern Baja, connected by a new toll road to the airport. It's about an hour and fifteen minute drive. Rent a board right on the beach for $15. The restaurant there has plenty to choose from but is expensive. Many people drive up from Cabo every day to hang out... More
