If winter has arrived too early or you simply need another reason to visit Cabo San Lucas, enjoy this tour of the area beaches. The warm Cabo sun is calling!
Walk along Medano Beach and take in the fun and activity. Rent a jet ski, take a water taxi to the Marina or Playa del Amor, or park at “The Office” for a perfect margarita and vantage point of all the action. There are numerous wonderful excursions to take you to the other area beaches.
Playa El Medano Consisting of several miles of safe swimming beach beginning at the east side of the Cabo San Lucas marina harbor entrance all the way past Villa La Estancia, Medano Beach is the main and most popular beach in Cabo San Lucas. Here you can pick any activity such as swimming, jet skiing, kayaking, waterskiing, banana boating, parasailing and more.
Playa del Amor “Lover’s Beach” is located on the Sea of Cortez side of Land’s End, only accessible via water taxi. This is the beach behind the world famous arch and is a good spot for swimming and snorkeling.
Playa Santa Maria Along the corridor highway at Km. 12, “Santa Maria Beach” is yet another must see beach. Located next to the Hotel Twin Dolphin, look for the beach access sign and follow the dirt road to the parking area. It is a short walk to this beautiful protected cove. 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.
Chilean Beach Chileno Bay, next to the Hotel Cabo San Lucas, is yet another breathtaking bay known for its diving and snorkeling. Look for the dive flag at the edge of the corridor highway at Km. 15, which marks the parking entrance. An equipment rental palapa is located on the beach’s western end near the water.
