This wide and sandy and windy beach has two parts - north and south. The south side is marked by sandstone cliffs. It is the bodyboarders and swimmers section. If you move north, you'll find a flag posted into the ground. Once you've crossed it, usually close to where sandstone cliffs end and the Los Penasquitos Lagoon salt marsh begins, you're in the north side. The north side is more popular with surfers, but generally less crowded than the south side. The three hundred feet tall sandstone cliffs are rather dramatically lit at sunset, which is a great time to click photos. A portion of the beach, known as Black Beach, is popular with nudists.
