  • This is a beautiful, rugged beach north of Todos Santos. Great for a getaway or a long walk on the beach. No food or services in nearby vecinity. There is a special, fenced in area with an attendant on the beach. This is related to the turtles. We didn't investigate more closely.
  • Was a very awesome family experience. Watching the baby sea turtles work their way to the water was cool. Exciting when waves take them in. Please donate because they do so much for the sea turtles.
  • Releasing the baby turtles in to ocean is a really cool experience. I've been down in both the winter to release and the fall to help prepare for it and its been magical every time. Its obscure enough to make a great memory, easy enough that anyone can pitch in and participate and important enough to start a lifelong appreciation and respect for ecology and the environment.
  • Really awesome experience! They let you see the baby turtles and talk about the process before releasing them into the surf. The google directions are correct, you can park on the beach or on the side of the road leading up to the beach. Head to the green house structure about an hour before sunset to catch the release. Bring some dollars to make a donation or buy a tee shirt!
  • Watching the newly hatched sea turtles make their live or death dash to the Ocean was a memorable travel experience...highly recommend this. As the turtles arnt released until sunset..strongly suggest wearing warm clothing..
