Beach Activities, Cabo San Lucas
Cerritos Beach is (was) an off the beaten path kind of beach but now everyone knows!! About an hour north of Cabo, just before you get to Todos Santos. They have now built a restaurant/beach club there which is nice. You can surf here but as always be cautious! See my Todos Santos tips.
Another good option if ypu rent a car. There are a wide variety of great deserted beaches to visit. Be careful when driving to these beaches, sometimes the roads are covered with sand and is very difficult to follow the path, we got stuck twice needing help from a truck in the last place.
On the road from Los Cabos to Todos Santos, there is a dirt road that leads to a surfing beach. Its much closer to Todos Santos. There are no signs so you have to ask the locals for some landmarks: curve in road etc. The one we went to had 2 shops to rent surf boards as well as a bar/resturant. Nice beach, good food. Prices for board rentals was reasonable.
A little known area about an hour outside of Cabo is a place called Cerritos, or Santa Lucia de los Cerritos. You will need to rent a car to get here, but it is just wonderful! Obviously, the avid surfers know about this place because it's totally secluded and you have to take a dirt road to get here. Once you are here though, the water is beautiful and the waves are great for a beginner-intermediate surfer. The place is secluded enough so you don't have to worry about waiting to catch a wave. Some people will camp here to just surf and hang out. To get here, you take the highway from Cabo San Lucas and head towards Todos Santos. Around KM 66, you will see several dirt roads heading towards the beach. Any one of them should take you to the water. There is a one-man "surf shop" by the beach. You can rent a board and wetsuit for US$20. He's a cool cat and very friendly. His "shop" is out of a camper so when you get towards the water, look for a camper with a sign on it. We spent one of the most relaxing and enjoyable afternoons at this pretty beach! :)
We went to Divorce beach which is on the other side of Lover's Beach and let me tell you, I don't think I've ever been on sand so hot! I thought the skin on my feet were going to burn off...literally! We went snooping around the beach and found a lot of cool cactus' and one even got stuck in my dads' arm without him even noticing...quite funny.
Whoa. This is even better than wave running. I mean, to be up in the sky being pulled by a speed boat across the bay is a thrill and when you say higher, up you go another 20-30 feet, till you are high in the sky. High on the thrill for sure.
If you can get to Sunset Beach on the Pacific Side for a day, I would recommend it. It is on the other side of the mountains on Cabo's west end. The beach is usually empty because you cannot swim there, which makes it great to lay out and relax. Walking the length of the beach is also recommended. There are rock formations and amazing homes on top of the mountains to look at.
Guests at the Pueblo Bonito Rose can get a free shuttle to the Pueblo Bonito at Sunset Beach which leaves once an hour. You will be dropped off at the resort and taken to the beach or pool. This resort is the only resort on the Pacific side of Cabo, and the resort itself is worth seeing.
Most people hit the beaches during the day. At night, it's mostly empty--grab a beach chair and drink, and watch the stars. Temperatures are in the 70s at night (in September), and it feels great.
If you desire something faster than a sailboat, then the waverunner is for you. These motorcycles on water can really zip along the water and can create fun or havoc if you jump a wave.
