This is my favorite beach bar restaurant in San Carlos. Tables under cover of the palapa or in the sand with beach umbrellas for shade. Very Mexican, so practice your español, though there are usually a couple of waiters who speak some English. On the weekend, Algodones Beach is a favorite windsurfing spot for the locals and they really put... More

La Salsa is a great beach bar and restaurant. I am rating it as such. The food and service are very good. You have a beautiful view of the beach and bay.

This is a great beachfront restaurant/bar with spectacular views across the bay to the Sea of Cortez. Great guacamole and food. the drinks are reasonably priced and the service is friendly and prompt. Live music on Sunday is a great take.

On the beach and sheltered from the wind. Music was excellent the day we were there. Little or no alcohol in the margarita.

A restaurant by day and a disco by night. Some of the best batter fried shrimp that I have had in a long time. Located on a beautiful stretch of beach/ restaurant row north of San Carlos that costs $150 pesos each way in a taxi.

We had an amazing supper here, by the beach, good latin beats, great service! Like the Soggy Peso, it's a bit away from the main core, but worth the visit.

This large bar and restaurant on the beach has a very attentive wait staff watching to make sure every need is fulfilled. We were a large gathering and they kept the buckets of beer and chips and salsa coming. A nice place to hang out, walk the beach, eat lunch, meet friends and just spend the afternoon.

Really good service! Chips and salsa were brought right away to the table, and they kept the drinks coming. The coconut shrimp was pretty tasty and was served with rice and coleslaw. Lounge chairs and umbrellas to enjoy the sun were a great touch. We went several times the week we were there.

Amazing fish tacos. We tried several and loved them all. We went back for dinner and loved the shrimp cocktail. It seemed most menu items were based on shrimp so if you dont like that maybe another place would be better.
