Wonderful Beach

This beach is so great that we bought a condo and moved here. Great for surfing, boogie boarding, swimming or watching an amazing sunset.

We found a lot of the beaches near Todos Santos were not swim-friendly but Cerritos Beach was great for swimming, surfing and boogie boarding...we came back here several times during our stay in Todos Santos. Beautiful beach with nice surroundings! And make sure to get a beach massage from Brenda and her mom...aaaaahhhhhhh!

Great beach to hang out at on a Sunday. If you love to surf, this is the place to be. But even if you just want to hang out at the beach, have a few drinks and relax, can't do much better than this in the Todos Santos area.

Surf is great and so is the swimming but one day we couldn't leave our stuff because two guys were scoping it out.

Waves were perfect for learning how to surf and for body surfing. Massages on the beach were highly rated by some friends. Beautiful breeze every day.

Somewhat remote beac,h but with most of the amenities (restaurant, bathrooms, etc.) of a larger more populated beach closer to Cabo proper. Great area to learn to surf, and plenty of lessons/instructors available. Too many beach merchants constantly approaching to try and sell you the same old tourist souvenirs, but to be expected in any area with a tourist population.

My husband and I went with three other couples for a week to Serrito's. We stayed in a condo close by. It was a five minute walk to the beach. We enjoyed walking on the beach in the morning, sitting around enjoying lunch on the beach in the afternoon, and even a few evening stroll's. The guys got up really... More

There are certainly quieter beaches in this area (Playa las Palmas), and beaches with more upscale service (El Faro), but we deeply enjoyed Cerritos: ample (free) parking, clean bathrooms, a large menu and an attentive staff who kept us hydrated and well-fed for many hours of sunning, people-watching and body surfing. It's true, the vendors are omnipresent and somewhat pushy... More

Great swimming beach, but you will be approached by LOTS of vendors trying to sell you anything from blankets to temporary tattoos.

Little beachside bar was fun and affordable. Small fee to enter beach applies to bar. Beautiful beach and smallish kid friendly waves for boogie boarding!
