Cabo beaches ready for summer 2017

Date Published:

Summer is here and the beaches of Baja California Sur are in pristine condition...

With 7 blue flags beaches, and Operation Lifesaver now underway, Cabo is ready to welcome visitors. Huge efforts have gone into cleaning, certifying and surveillance operations to make things as safe as possible for summer guests. 

All the hard work has paid off  Cabo now has 7 blue flag beaches - Chileno, Palmillo and Santa Maria - have all been re-awarded blue flag status. And Acapulquito, Las Viudas, Coral Negro (Embalmer) and Hacienda have all just received blue flags this season.

Blue flag status is the highest award for cleanliness, water quality, environmental management and safety. They are hugely important for BCS as a tourist destination - indicating the high calibre of the beaches and the high levels of safety and surveillance.

Safety is crucial on BCS beaches as tourists repeatedly take risks despite warnings against high waves and strong currents. 

Every year this leads to fatalities despite the best efforts of local safety and naval teams.  There have already been several drownings in the last couple of weeks.

However, the launch last weekend of the Navy’s “ Operation Lifesaver  2017” will hopefully reduce the risk of fatal accidents. Operation Lifesaver  involves the temporary deployment of 218 Naval agents who will cover 10 beaches. Providing land and sea patrols in an attempt to safeguard lives and ensure the good behaviour of all visitors. First aid stations will also be installed on several beaches.  Operation Lifesaver 2017  covers the main vacation period and runs until August 21.

So, if you are visiting Baja’s beaches this summer - have fun but be safe. Don’t swim if you see the red warning flags, listen to the advice of the lifeguards, and stay off the beaches on windy days.
