Nice beach to walk on, but is is much too rough to swim. Not good for small children either because the surf is really rough.

Very nice long beach but you can't go swimming. The sea of Cortez is too dangerous in the area. While walking you will see a lot of rays jumping out of the water and a lot of sharks swimming near the chores. Occasionally, you will...More

Not much to do at beach - waves too dangerous for swimming, no paddleboarding, massages, restaurants, beach chairs for rent. It's nice for a long walk, but few access points due to all the hotels.

We've stayed in this area for many years. The soft smooth beaches are really nice and calm, and the warm water is extremely inviting. There are a few vendors walking along trying to earn a living (and I've bought a few things from them), but...More

Love the beaches in the resort/hotel zone. The water is so clear, sand so soft! You can definitely swim in the water - don't listen to what other reviewers say! We weren't in for long but couldn't believe the fish and the clarity of the...More

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....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...More
