Things to Do in Todos Santos
The coastal town of Todos Santos is a classic Baja California community, specializing in all the good things in life: beach activities, wildlife-watching, art and handicrafts galleries, and great restaurants.
Surfers come to Todos Santos for the waves, nature lovers come to spot whales, New Agers come for the yoga retreats and local art scene, and relaxed holiday-makers visit to stay in up-market boutique accommodations and enjoy the local seafood.
If you’re into surfing, check out the beaches at La Pastora, San Pedrito and Cerritos. If you’re a history buff, take a walk around the colonial buildings of this former mission town.
Set against the sweeping backdrop of the Sierra Nevada mountains, the 18th-century Our Lady of Pilar Church (Misión de Nuestra Señora del Pilar) is the town’s most notable religious edifice. Originally built by Spanish missionaries and characterized by a yellow facade, an altar surrounded by stained glass, and sweeping views over the ocean, Our Lady of Pilar Church is a Todos Santos must-see.
