Fodor's Review

Playa Los Cerritos. This long, expansive beach on the Pacific Ocean, about 64 km (40 mi) north of Cabo San Lucas and on the way to the town of Todos Santos, is famous among surfers for its wonderful breaking waves in winter. Great for beginners, the waves here are consistent, accessible, and not overly powerful. Boards and lessons are available at the Costa Azul Surf Shop right on shore. This beach works best on northwest swells. Even if you don't ride the waves, you can watch them crash along the shore. The sandy beach is wide, flat, and ideal for wading and swimming close to shore. Swimming farther out is not recommended because of the strong currents. Most of the surfing crowd camps or stays in RVs near the beach. The developing area covers the basics with a few conveniences—including bustling Los Cerritos Club restaurant and two surf shops. Access to the beach is marked on Highway 19 (which connects Cabo San Lucas and Todos Santos) by a sign for Playa Los Cerritos at Km

64 (13 km [8 mi] south of Todos Santos). The graded dirt road to the beach is 2½ km (1½ mi) from Highway 19. Amenities: Toilets, showers (for restaurant patrons), food concession, parking lot, camping, surfboards. Best for: surfing; swimming; snorkeling; walking. 64 km (40 mi) north of Cabo San Lucas, 13 km (8 mi) south of Todos Santos, Baja California Sur, 23300.
