Lovers Beach

Getting to lovers beach is an adventure in itself due to the fact that it’s only reachable by boat or kayak. The easiest way is to take a water taxi from the Cabo San Lucas marina or Medano beach.

Las Viudas (The Window)
This beach is not visible from the road and is the most private beach you will find on this list. What makes it so unique are the rock formations that create pools and coves where you can have a private and peaceful beach day.

Santa Maria
A stunning horseshoe cove with coral color sand and an abundant marine life. Boat excursions and private charters often stop here to enjoy snorkelling and scuba diving that this National Marine Preserve Offers.

Chileno Bay
This beach is a popular location for snorkelling, swimming or just spending a day under newly installed palapas.

Palmilla is known for its family friendly calm waters and mile long stretch of beach.

Costa Azul
This spot if perfect for surfing and does not require driving out of town. Head over to zippers for surf sessions or lunch with drinks at the restaurant.

La Playita (The little beach)
This is a long stretch of beach where you will often find locals fishing from the shore and families with children enjoying the beachfront playground.

This is a popular surf spot a scenic 45 minute drive from Cabo San Lucas and is well worth the trip as you drive along the pristine pacific coast.

El Medano

This beach is where is the action is. El Medano (as the locals call it) is a two mile stretch of hotels, restaurants and bars right on the sand and just steps from the water.
