Nice surf beach with bar located on beach. Only issue was the sales people consistently trying to sell you things. Not a big deal but there are other less populated beaches that we enjoyed more. Surf was consistent in the morning and later in the afternoon. Probably about 20-25 guys in the water everyday during our stay. Many accommodations close... More

A really nice, small beach with good waves for surfing. There are some sellers that you have to brush off, but otherwise this is great.

Long, beautiful beach with the Pacific breakers rolling in. Surf equipment for hire. Behind the beach, the view is pretty grim, but the sea more than makes up for it.

Well worth a visit and a day of your vacation on the beach. It's a little hard to find but take the exit off the highway for "Cerritos Surf Colony". Dirt road that probably is slick when it is wet.Park your car on the road and walk up to the beach. Just as you get to the beach Chuy's place... More

Spectacular swimmable beach. Used to be much nicer before development started. Sand like talcum powder. Water wonderful. Often see whales right off shore. Bring food and drinks. Surfing lessons available too.

Leaving Todos Santos the beach, local hotels and restaurant are just 20 minutes away. Parking at several areas and short walk to the beach. Nice long flat beach to walk, and you can walk fairly far out in shallow water to swim before you get to the bigger surf. Some surfing and body surfing.

When we arrived at the beach there was a sign said that the only access was through the cerritos beach surf club. At the gate there was a guard who said it was private and there was no access. He was very clear. We finally asked if we could go to the bar and he let us through. We had... More

We stopped at this beach on our way from cabo to todos santos as was suggested to us (for the $20 massages) but have to say we did not stay long. The beach was very busy but mainly with locals selling their wares and politely saying no thank you every few minutes was a pain. There are other beautiful beaches... More

You have to enter at Cerritos Beach and Surf Club. Parking is $5 which you get refunded with purchase of food or drink. Lots of English speakers. There was a band playing when we were there on a Sunday. Also, there is horse rental. Nice spot
