Sure, we talk about fishing, about surfing, about diving. About drinking and dancing the night away at a glitzy bar, about riding ATVs on a dusty
mountain path. There are a million reasons to visit Los Cabos, but the
big one, the reason celebrities and tourists of
every nationality visit Los Cabos, is simple:
beautiful, often deserted, beaches. Miles and miles of powdery
sand, turquoise waters and sunny vistas, just begging for someone to set
up an umbrella, open a refreshing drink and relax…you could do that,
There are no limits when it comes to beaches in
Los Cabos. Whatever your taste, there’s a beach for you. Secluded
coves, party central, and surfer’s paradise: we’ve got you covered. So
open your imagination, visualize your perfect spot, and enjoy our guide
to the beaches of Los Cabos.
Cabo San Lucas and the Pacific Coast
Let’s begin where it all starts: the very tip of
the peninsula where the Pacific ocean meets the Sea of Cortez. Here is
the famous El Arco of San Lucas: a delicately arching piece of rock that forms Land’s End, the end of
thousands of miles of Baja coastline. Tucked right behind the arch is
the romantically inclined Lover’s Beach. The world famous Medano Beach is a must for partygoers and people watchers and is located close to the marina and has a number of hotels right on it.
Further up the coast on the Pacific side, you’ll
notice a distinct change in scenery. Here, you’ll see a more “California
style” coastline: rolling hills and rock outcroppings dipping into deep
blue water. It’s all about wild, unspoiled coastlines at the very
edge of the world. Enormous cacti line the highway, all the way down
to the beach. Cruising up the coastline to
Todos Santos, there are some great surfing beaches, including Cerritos.
The Corridor is the stretch of highway that
connects San Jose del Cabo to Cabo San Lucas: 30 kilometers of pure
bliss, where the crystalline waters of the Sea of Cortez meet the
untamed Baja desert. There are a few beaches here that stand out for
swimming, but the majority of the coastline is great for a long stroll,
but with too many rocks and strong currents for swimming.
Chileno Bay is a local favorite and next to Chileno Bay is another favorite, Santa Maria.
San Jose del Cabo
San Jose is home to a number of lovely beaches,
each with their own distinct character. As you drive from Cabo San
Lucas, the first beach you’ll come to is Palmilla and right past Palmilla is the Costa Azul (or, blue
Past the estuary
in San Jose is the newly-created marina of San Jose del Cabo. Locals
love La Playita (or, little beach in Spanish), and it continues to
reflect traditional life in Los Cabos, before all the fancy hotels came
to town. Here, fishermen use traditional pangas to catch small reef
fish, and boats routinely come in with the freshest catches in town.
Here you can sample the bounty of the sea, either with freshly caught
fish you can cook up later, or ceviche and fish tacos at the little
stands along the beach. La Playita is a step back in time, a beach that
doubles as a cultural experience.
The East Cape
The East Cape is the place for adventurers: wild
landscapes, big waves, big fish, and endless stretches of beaches
without another person in sight. Take a drive out here and literally
take your pick of what you want: this deserted beach, or the next one?
This long, peeling surf break or another one right down the road? You
won’t see many other tourists out here, but you will see the clean
waters of the Sea of Cortez, some stunning landscapes and perhaps a cow
Most of the beaches here are designated by little
handmade signs that state the name of the beach (take Shipwrecks or
Nine Palms, for example), and all you do is simply pull off the road and
park near the shore. It’s best to come out here with a truck or SUV
that can handle some wear and tear, but all sorts of cars can make it
out here. Check out the beaches near San Jose, or journey up the coast
towards La Paz and check out the
Cabo Pulmo marine park
and ecological reserve, a diver and snorkeler’s paradise. This is a
place to escape from it all and commune with nature, to take a break
from the stresses of everyday life. Stay for a while at some of the
eco-friendly lodgings along the way, or camp under the stars whatever
you prefer. But, when you are ready to rejoin the rest of the world,
you’re only a short drive away from San Jose del Cabo.
With so many beaches to choose from, you could
easily spend your time in Los Cabos exploring a new beach every day.
We’re willing to wager that you’ll find a spot that you like to call
your own, a sandy little home-away-from-home.
Exploring the miles of
beaches here is all about following your heart and discovering something
new, whether it be new friends over a round of drinks, a new surf
break, or (perhaps) a new outlook on life. Be sure to bring your
swimsuits and plenty of sunscreen, and your spirit of adventure.
