Beaches & Big Wave Surfing
Todos Santos is known for its big wave surfing and gorgeous beaches. There are several beaches in the area including La Pastora, San Pedrito and Cerritos. La Pastora is a beautiful sand beach with a minimal crowd. San Pedrito is another sandy beach where whales spout near the shore, and mangoes ripen twice a year. Cerritos is a very popular place to surf. The shoreline is dotted with surfers tents and it is a relatively safe place to swim.
The closest beach to Casablanca Bed & Breakfast is La Poza. While it is not suitable for swimming, it is perfect for a liesurly stroll, fishing, whale watching, and sun bathing. It also has a large freshwater lagoon that is great for bird watching.
And last, but certainly not least, is Las Palmas Beach. This highly secluded piece of heaven on earth sits amongst the Palm Oasis bordered by a reed lagoon and protected by rock promontories on both sides. Groves of palm trees frame this gorgeous small beach. Ruins of an old Rancho are nearby. Las Palmas is ideal for hiking, swimming, and body surfing.
Kayaking, Fishing, Adventure & Eco Tours
Take an adventure that allows you to discover the less-traveled paths of Baja California Sur. There are several companies in the region that offer everything from week-long to daily eco-excursions for the adventurous traveler. There is lots to see and do including hikes and cliff walks to visit the sea lions and whales. Taking part of an eco-tour while in Todos Santos will show you a part of Mexico that most visitors never get to experience or see.
The beautiful bay of La Paz, Cabo Pulmo and surrounding areas of Todos Santos, are filled with a variety of tropical fish and sea life which makes for one of the world's best kayaking and fishing playgrounds. While on the water you are sure to see colonies of sea lions snoozing on the rocks or playing in the surf. Search the coastline for caves, blowholes and underwater caverns all visible through the crystal clear Pacific waters. Fish indigenous to Todos Santos include marlin, yellowtail, dorado, roosterfish, swordfish, wahoo and many more. Kayaking and/or fishing in Todos Santos is the experience of a lifetime!
