Clear water, great waves. Snorkeling would be amazing on low tide. Good idea to take your own sun umbrella

It is a bit of a hassle when there is no parking, but if you find parking, it is an easy walk to the beach. Great for beginner long board surfers. Nice walk along the beach as you head west. We walked from Acapulquito to Playa Palmilla and back. Nice walk with great ocean sounds on one side and the... More

Be sure to bring food, drinks and shade as there are no (free) beach amenities. Or, you can enter... More

I love this beach - it's great for swimming and surfing (or surf watching). I also love the restaurant 7 Seas above the beach - great views and when you are tired of the sun, you can go grab something to eat and then return back to the beach.

This is a nice surfspot with nearby local surf shops that offer rental boards at a good price, if you are looking for a friendly surf spot this is the place and it is also on the side of other two very good surf spots this being Costa Azul & La Roca.

This beach is right in front of the Cabo Surf Hotel. Go there in a cab, get set up on the beach with an umbrella ($18) and enjoy the beach. You pay for your items in the hotel and bring the receipt to the surf shop and they will set you up. There is a great walk north from the... More

Just watch out for La Roca. Many surfers and paddleboarders. Limited parking is available above the beach. A steep walk down to the beach.
