Might be the nicest beach in Los Cabo's. Accessible by taxi from the road. Beautiful and safe. Lots of vendors overnight jewelry and hats. Can be crowded.

This is one of the nicest, family friendly beaches in Cabo. I would take some liquids and shade. It's a very nice protected area.

First of all if you are going to any beach in Cabo San lucas, be sure to have your aquashoes on because the sand is more like a bunch of small and diabolic pebbles that are very and extremely uncomfortable to walk in. The bright...More

Easy enough to catch the bus there. Also there are taxis waiting everywhere outside your buildings. tell them to pick you up at a certain time and they will. We have always just rented a car while there.
