Not a place to swim or surf, but a gorgeous quiet stretch of beach for walking, sunset watching, beach combing. I even saw people fishing! Beautiful big rollers slam directly onto the beach, sounding like canon fire at night. The sand is coarsely grained, and...More

This beach is my favorite of the ones I visited while in Cabo. It's mostly a surfing beach but we did get in the water and had a great time. The waves were a bit rough but that is what made it fun to swim!...More

Very cool to be the only people on the beach for as far as we could see! Saw whales right off the beach. Could have watched the waves crashing all day long! Tiny dirt road to get there but well worth it.

Dramatic long beach, too bad you can't get in the water...bring your own cooler, umbrella, etc no service beach ( which is actually great)

I could hear them take a breath, closest I have ever got to whales while sitting on the beach. Never more than a dozen people there. Mostly for whale watching, walking, horsebackriding..not a swimming beach!

The beach isn't swimmable. The continental shelf drops very quickly few yards away from shore so this part of the beach is usable only if you are an ocean arganisms....
