Great spot with a wide flat beach which is swimmer friendly. It's the only place in the area besides Cerritos where you can have a fun swim in the waves and not worry about getting smashed. There is a current as you get closer to the rocks so stay closer to the middle and everything will be fine. Very little... More

I'm sure before TripAdvisor and Lonely Planet, this was a wonderful local secret. Still, it was very quiet when we visited----about five couples spread out across half a mile of beige sand. As swimmable beaches go, it's much closer to Todos Santos than La Playa Cerritos, which we also liked, but is much more crowded, with hundreds of people.

This is a pretty beach that's off the beaten path. To get to it, pay *really* close attention after you pass Km marker 57 from Mexico-19 ... there will be a dirt path not too far from the marker. (We saw it as we passed it and had to drive a bit for a U turn ... then we drove... More

It is the prettiest beach in the Todos Santos area. Used to be even better with a lagoon and horses wandering around but the stream is no more. Stil,l the sand is hard packed at the water's edge, great for a walk and later find a spot to have a swim. However, only the mid-section is relative safe to swim.... More

Palm beach is a short stretch of sandy beach between two rocky headlands. But what a stretch of beach! Enough waves to be interesting but not so much as to be scary. Gorgeous views. And bounded by very interesting rocks. The drive to the beach is rough but, after you park, it's a short walk through a wonderful palm forest... More

Beautiful beach with good swimming and phenomenal views. The drive is hairy beginning on a poorly marked dirt road, but well worth the bumps! The hike out to the beach is short and wild in an old palm grove. Don't leave valuables in your car...

This beach is a hidden gem! Very secluded and beautiful. Great for exploring. Definitely off the beaten path but well worth the short walk to get there. Once we arrived we were greeted with a spectacular view.

If you want to get away from the crowds and enjoy a little piece of heaven make the trip to Palm Beach. Right at mile marker 57 follow a very bumpy dirt road and at its end park. You will walk through a palm tree forest ending on a beautiful beach. You might run into several curious unharnessed horses. Once... More

This gem of a beach is at the end of a twisty, turny, rocky and rutted dirt road. But it's totally worth the drive as it is private, stunning and pristine. You may find three or four other cars there, but that will be all. You'll have this piece of paradise mostly to yourself. The water is warm, the waves... More

This is a lovely secluded beach where horses will wander up curious about what you have in your cooler. There's some ambiguity about whether it's safe to swim there. My family mostly just played in the shallows of the water, enjoying the waves without going out too deep. We brought our lunch along because there are no amenities (e.g., rest... More
