We stayed at the Royal Solaris which is next to this stretch of beach. You can't swim here. It's good for a walk or to relax. They do have people selling stuff on the beach but if you say no gracias, they leave you alone. The waves crashing down are super intense and I love that sound. I could sleep... More

the beach along the hotel strip is great, waves can get a little rough at times so make sure you know how to swim

Nice quiet area. Not sure about the beaches other than where the Royal Solaris Hotel is but the ocean was very rough through our stay so no one was really going into the water. The sand is very hot and is not as pretty as Cancun's beaches. Lots of peddlers on the beach selling their wares.

This is a long stretch of a beach populated by a number of hotel resorts. Most of the beach is accessible by the hotel guests but there are several public access points and once you're there, the entire stretch is yours to enjoy. The beach is very clean, not at all crowded (in July... perhaps more crowded in the peak... More

If you are lucky to be in one of the hotels or resorts on this section of beach you know what a beautiful clean beach this is. Seems like the city provides weekly trash pickup. There are just a few venders. We found all the venders polite, friendly and not at all aggressive or pushy. This long beach has a... More

Though there is a good undertow and beach break most of the time, we get in the water. As experienced swimmer, we have no trouble at all. Fun to swim with the bat rays. eek

We went to watch the sunrise while staying in one of the hotels here (I can't remember the name of the hotel). This beach is NOT for swimming. The waves were so strong that the earth trembled under you as the waves closed. It was a beautiful feeling to just feel the tremble and hear the sound of the waves... More

On a day trip to San Jose del Cabo I ventured out to this beach. It was a Sunday. There was almost no one on the beach. It was like having your own private beach. I wasn't staying at any of the hotels that line this beach (hence the name) so I found an alley way between two resorts that... More

The Playa begins at the Estuary an extends SW to Playa Costa Azul. The beach is BEST for WALKING (for miles) as there is ROUGH SURF here. We found the best time for walking at LOW TIDE and in the EARLY AM. I've taken many photos over the last 4 years. We went HORSEBACK RIDING along the beach this year.... More
