Destination & Adventures

Experience

Cabo San Lucas Beaches

At the tip of Baja California, Cabo San Lucas is where the desert meets the ocean. It’s a place that no matter where you are, you’re only a block away from the water. This where you can experience numerous outdoor activities, shop ’til you drop, and drink, dance and party all night long!

Beaches of Cabo

Land’s End (El Arco)

Located at the southern end of Cabo San Lucas and sandwiched between Playa del Amor and Playa del Divorcio, these rock formations were created from the rough winds and seas of the southern Baja Peninsula.

Playa del Amor

Lover’s Beach
Located right near the famous Land’s End rock formations, Playa del Amor, or Lover’s Beach, is one of Cabo’s most famous stretches of shoreline. 

LOVER’S BEACH
It’s not exactly an undiscovered secret cove. But for a couple of hours, it’s worth shaking out your towel on Lover’s Beach (Playa del Amor) at the tip of Land’s End.
Striking rock formations tower above on either side, and if you walk all the way out across the golden sand behind, you hit Divorce Beach
The Playa del Amor (Love Beach) boasts a stretch of unblemished sand and some impressive rock formations. The beach offers a breathtaking view, with its turquoise water punctuated by looming rock structures such as Pelican Rock and Neptune’s Finger.

The beach faces the Sea of Cortez, which was famously called “the world’s aquarium,” by French explorer Jacques Cousteau. The area surrounding the beach is teeming with marine life and is popular with scuba divers. Surrounded by the calm waters of the Sea of Cortez, swimming and snorkeling are both possible in the area.

Chileno Beach

calm, shallow waters make it the go-to spot for snorkelers. But the real reason travelers love Chileno’s cream-colored shore

Another of our favorite Cabo beaches is Chileno Beach.
It was certified a “Blue Flag” beach in 2015 by the Foundation for Environmental Education for its clean water quality.
Surrounded by upscale resorts and homes, Chileno Beach is safe for swimming and offers excellent snorkeling for older children and adults. (The swimming/snorkeling area is roped off from boats.)

Playa Medano

Playa Medano is Cabo’s most crowded beach, with crystal blue waters and plenty of beachside watering holes attracting hordes of sunbathers. In addition to taking it easy with a drink, Playa Médano also offers some active attractions, including beach volleyball, jet skiing, kayaking, boogie boarding and parasailing.

Without doubt Cabo’s most famous beach – and the safest for swimming – Playa Medano is blessed with calm, clear water and stunning views. The beach has designated swimming areas and backs on to a broad selection of hotels, bars and restaurants. Medano (which means “The Dune”) looks out onto the Land’s End rock formations and famous Arch. The gentle surf makes this beach perfect for water sports – boogie boards, kayaks and jet skis are all available to rent.

Not surprisingly, this beach is also the most popular.

Beach

Playa Hotelera

This lengthy stretch of powdery sand sits right alongside Cabo’s major hotel strip. The popular public beach is great for families, sandcastles and volleyball. Beach umbrellas are available to rent and ice cold beers are on offer throughout the day. A favorite with both joggers and surf fishers, this is not a beach for swimming. Very high waves are common and the currents in the area are notoriously unpredictable.

Divorce Beach

No one really knows why it’s named Divorce Beach (Playa del Divorcio). The locals joke it’s the rough seas encountered there. Whatever, it contrasts nicely with the calmer waters of Lover’s Beach across the other side of the sand.
A world away from happening Medano Beach, secluded Divorce Beach is ideal for quiet sunbathing and relaxing. Connected to Lover’s Beach, but facing the extremely choppy waters of the Pacific Ocean, Playa del Divorcio (Divorce Beach) is extremely dangerous for swimmers, so don’t risk it. However, the beach is highly recommended for its sunsets, which are truly spectacular.

Playa Solmar

Also located on Cabo’s Pacific side, Playa Solmar is known for its majestic golden stretch of sand. Strong, unpredictable currents mean swimming is not an option. Playa Solmar is semi-private as access is granted via the Solmar Suites Hotel and vendors are not allowed in the area. Although this is in some ways less convenient, it also makes Playa Solmar a great option for tourists looking to escape the crowds on the Playa Hotelera during the peak season.

Bring your own lunch and dedicate yourself to the serious business of soaking up the rays.

Santa Maria Beach

We also love Santa Maria Beach for snorkeling. And we’ve seen whales there too!
As you gaze out to the azure sea you will see the peaceful horseshoe shaped beach with sand the color and consistency of pink rice. Relatively secluded, Bahía Santa María is a protected marine sanctuary, so bring along a bag of bread or tortillas and feed the multi-colored creatures of the deep. This is an excellent spot for snorkeling or just relaxing on the beach.This marine preserve is a prime destination for many charter boats that offer snorkeling and SCUBA diving excursions departing from the Cabo San Lucas harbor. If you want to see a world of friendly colorful tropical fish, this is the place to go. Mornings, when it’s calm, is usually best for optimum underwater visibility. There are no facilities available other than a dirt parking lot and a few beach vendors so bring what you need with you. This is truly one of the most beautiful places in Los Cabos and well worth a visit.
