It can get crowded here, but there is a pretty mellow vibe. Lots of hawkers, but they're not that aggressive. It's frequented by surfers and our grandchildren had a great time on their boogie boards. It's a very pretty spot.

Safe public beach. Surf or swim. Water cool in January. Somewhat crowded on weekends in warmer weather.

And do nothing, but relax, walk their beautiful beaches, watch the baby Tortuga release at Sunset, read booksss, ride horseback on the beach, fix BBQ dinners, sleep late, hear really good music in the cantinas and have an occasional meal out. There's a new toll road from the SJD Aeropuerto, which bypasses Cabo, so TS is easy to get to... More

Visited to see surfing. We were disappointed by the dirty beach. It really is more of a typical tourist hangout with locals walking the beach selling their wares. Not our scene. Not very relaxing.

We took surf lessons here. The beach is beautiful and well worth the stop with or without the lesson. Rocky outcrop on one end is great for pictures and viewing tide pool animals while the waves crash on them.

One of the best spots for watching increadible Pacific sunsets! Paradise for surfing lovers, beach camping, beach running, swimming because of available entrance into the water! Here you can rent surfboard, have a snack or have lunch in the restaurant right on the beach! Big free parking! Great views!

This is a great place to spend the afternoon with good friends. A wonderful, mixed scene of surfers, families, and other ner-do-wells. We've been to Tulum many times, and we look forward to exploring this area. Ask for Rodrigo as Asa server at the Beach Club.

This is a great beach for families, couples, anyone. Before driving straight to the beach, avoid pay parking and take a left to park with locals alongside the dirt road. Rented a surfboard and umbrella for $20 US. Beautiful beach for swimming, walking, reading. Not too crowded.

So fortunate to be staying a week on this beach. It's so lovely and shallow to walk when the tides out and the water warm enough to enjoy in December. Love watching the fisherman cast their nets or head out in the morning and return at night. Enjoy seeing the flying fish and whales off shore.
