Free beach camping in-between Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo. you enter off the Freeway at the sign for Playa El Tule. the exit is under the bridge so some rigs might be tall (although large trucks were driving on and off so one part of the bridge may have more clearance). we camped for a week with no problems,there appears to be a full time rv set up when we were there in June. nice beach,clean and good for surfing. there is a few good swimming beaches nearby such as Playa Santa Maria which has open showers (public but warm!)
Why? By checking in after you’ve visited a place you let others know this place is still functional. You can also add or correct any information.
Nice beach, free camping, lots of rigs. Close to the main highway. Clean Porta-potty on site and trash receptacles. Lots of locals hanging out on the weekends. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets.Report Check-In
Great spot! 3 of us (2 sprinters and a westy) stayed here for 3 nights and had a great time! The first night there was music blasting from locals as usual, from 8-pm to 5am. The second and 3rd nights were peaceful, and the days are wonderful. There are also porta potties and garbage cans! Wouldn’t swim here but lovely for hanging.Report Check-In
Vehicle: Ram Promaster 3500
Great spot to hang for a few days. About as close to Cabo as you can get without street parking.
Most of the beach area is hard-packed up to 20-30 feet from the row of rocks lining the beach. Easy to dig out if you get stuck, which we did once.
There were at least 6 vans, one full-size skoolie, and a travel trailer parked out there the five days we were there.
Would stay again!Report Check-In
Two feral horses greeted me as I came in.
Once I got to just before the palapas, I got out and walked the sand with my AWD 2007 Honda CRV.
Might be iffy getting out, but I have sandbags, so not worried.
if you need them, large garbage bags work as sandbags as a pinch. Just fill them and then tie a tight knot.
Excellent cell signal.
About 20 rigs here....but glad to be off road.
....leaving? Yep, sand was sketchy. Took two runs to get out.
Very nice, free place to stay. Two separate areas. Porta johns are cleaned every 1-2 day( bring your own TP) and there are trash receptacles (rare in this area) that are emptied every 2 days. Be careful, really soft sand past the parking area. Ok, here we go, if you love loud music until 3AM, this is your place, you will just love it. Not every night, but weekends are local party-central. Well, it is a local beach. Be prepared, you will not sleep unless you have a few drinks earlier. Maybe more.Report Check-In
Spot was ok. A bit of music at night not to bad when we where there. One thing to not for large (tall) fifth wheels, from the beach looking at the bridge, use the second opening from the left to get out. That one and I beleive the last one on the right are the only spot that will clear a rig that is 13' 6".Report Check-In
atayed here two nights. It's a big area. There are Porta John's at the south and the north end. locals come here in the evening. I was parked on the beach. No problems.
spent two nights here. both nights were quite & lots of other campers around. just be aware that some spots in the parking area are a little soft so take it slow. this is an easy place to pull into at night if you need to as it's a well lit area with the lights from the highway. we saw 3 feral horses there but they were away from the parking area.Report Check-In
We stayed in Tule for more than a month, and overall we really liked it there. There's a main parking area but if you have 4x4 you can explore and go further away in search of calm and peace because this beach is super popular among the locals. Some nights it was calm, but some it was a loud Mexican fiesta until 4am :D
We parked at the far right end by the stream, cause we found that the signal was the strongest there and we needed to work. There was a guard on a property right next to us observing the beach night and day, so we felt even safer than we would normally. But watch out - that corner of the beach is pretty sandy, better don't enter without 4x4, we helped dragging 3 cars out during our stay.
There are pit toilets, thrash bins and free palapas at the beach. The toilets are washed regularly, the thrash taken away and the beach cleaned every other day. Amazing.
Not much of swimming spot, cause it's a bit rocky, but if you follow the beach to the left it gets better. On the left side you can also surf and sea little turtles if you're lucky to come during the nesting season! The beach is frequented by horses and cows, which are super cute. <3 What is more, if you come back walking/cycling to the bridge, cross below it and then follow the dirt road, it goes on through beautiful scenery perfect for jogging and cycling trips. If you like slacklining, you can hang it between the palapas and have some fun too. Oh, and absolutely STUNNING sunrises.
Overall super recommended, but not for those who are light sleepers. :D If you wanna see the whole Day in Tule, check out our YT channel. :)
Would not recommend for overnighting if you want to sleep. Maybe with 4wd the far end of the beach from the main parking area would be okay. Stayed on a Thursday, enjoyable day on the beach not too busy. Mostly rocky in the water but mix of course and soft sand on beach, a few palapas. Starting around 9 pm there was a constant stream of locals coming to party with loud music, excessive drinking, vomiting, etc. until maybe 3-4 am. A few people used our van to prop themselves up to go to the bathroom, despite the nearby porta potties, leaving their mess and toilet paper around our van. The area was scattered with bottles the next day and we cleaned up what hadn't been shattered, but a beach cleanup crew came by a bit later.Report Check-In
Free Camping and bathrooms. No water. Police drive through in the middle of the night and like to wake you up. Sometimes there is surf.Report Check-In
Nice clean beach to camp. Easy access from the road.Report Check-In
Parking au bord de la plage agreable sable assez dur mais a eviter le week end car beaucoup de pick up sur la plage et beaucoup de quad et motos. Tres bruyant et poussiéreux. Bien la semaineb.Report Check-In
I stayed here 3 nights. Great experience overall. Need to be careful not to park in the dirt sand areas. Another van got stuck and needed a tow truck. It’s pretty easy to see where the soft sand begins though. It was mostly quiet at night. Odd vehicle would come in but no one bothered us They clean the beach and empty the garbages every day. Far enough from the highway that there is minimal traffic noise at night. During the day there are regular noises. I’d recommend this spot.Report Check-In
Camping right on the beachfront. Saturday night so busy with locals but mainly family's so not to bad. Be careful of soft sand if you are in a 2wd. We had to tow a couple of cars out.Report Check-In
in a 24' campervan, no issues getting to the spot (as described by others). only complaint is that the sand is super chalky and dusty (it's a mix of road dirt with sand particulate). not great for hanging out on.Report Check-In
Great for a night. We parked on the far left side. Free parking, trash, and port-a-potties.
Quiet night, even though the highway is close, you really can’t hear it. Palapas on the beach.
public beach, free camping, 3 sets of serviced portapotty stations, 3 sets of large garbage cans, 3 palapas, some music at night but quieted down (i was here on a monday night, so unknown about weekend celebrations) highly recommend!Report Check-In
arrived 5:00 p.m. on a sunday. there's somewhere in the vicinity of 20,000 locals on the beach. not too noisy. I wonder if I can sleep after they leave.
Sure enough by 8:30 the place is almost empty.
I was down in Cabo last month, but not RV camping. Drove by this area and noticed an RV, but seemed to be on private property. Would need to verify if still possible to camp there.Report Check-In
, not far away from civilization for my liking Broke down beautiful Baja all the way down to Cabo San Lucas, and now I can't wait to leave in between two. Big hotels down the beach one has a laser light show only two other cars here so far. They're both blasting music. I'm in the middle of them. Can't wait to get out of here get that to the Paz in the morning. Other than that the price is right and the waves sound great.Report Check-In
Just pulled in. And it is not far enough away from civilization. For my liking there's only two cars, of course, they both are blasting music. I'm going to stay here for the night feel safe, but can't wait to leave in the morning. After driving all the way down through Baja and seeing all that beauty and ending up in Cabo San Lucas and a little shocked. And can't wait to leave. Hopefully the hotels down the beach will turn off their laser light show sometime tonight.Report Check-In
Grand parking de terre /sable tasser donc ok en vr. On entend la circulation mais sinon la nuit est calme.Report Check-In
Nos quedamos dos noches , no hubo algún problema muy tranquilo y cuenta con baños .Report Check-In
Is a good spot during the week, we didn’t like Costa Azul so we kept driving and check this one is bigger and less people.Report Check-In
Great wide quiet beach! Says no bonfires but i saw many and had one and the police was ok with it and didnt say anything. Chemical bath but no shower.Report Check-In
if you are coming from cabo san lucas be sure to slow down before the exit as it is kinda hiding. the exit from the highway is pretty small and short. drive a bit pass the parked school bus, few hard dirt path to go to the beach parking lot. we stay at the parking lot because dont want to take risk of getting stuck again with our 2wd. the beach is ok, it is wavy. so we usually just hang out on the rocky part when the tide is a bit high. i also believe this is the only dog friendly beach in cabo san lucas. beware of spiders!!Report Check-In
Nice big beach with clean porta potty. For free you really can’t ask for more.Report Check-In
people coming and going at all time.loud music like a nightclub till 2.30am.
felt safe but barely slept coz of the noise.
- tent camping with 2 motorbikes
Easily accessible for big RV, no need for a 4WD or high clearance. You can park at the entrance of the beach at it’s hard enough with limited risk to get stuck within sand.Report Check-In
Great place between the tourist spots. Far enough from the highway to minimize noise. 3 campers on the beach and lots of very friendly locals having a Sunday out. Access from Cabo is easy. Exit east is a bit more complicated (go west to the retorno) but a great beach.
At night time horses and cows with bells comes walking on the beach, pretty cool.
Relatively safe swimming although the southern half is rocky and the northern end has more sand. Mostly locals that go there. Keep your stuff in your trunk and out of site.Report Check-In
Camped here for several days before New Years. Lots of people come and go during the night. A couple times people parked next to us with music on in the middle of the night. If you park further away from the beach you won't hear the noise as much. Can't beat the price for Cabo!Report Check-In
This place sucks compared to the rest of Baja. Did not feel safe. Something was off. Left...Report Check-In
