Cabo San Lucas (Los Cabos) Beaches:
Medano Beach (Playa Medano) is also known as the Cabo Dune Beach. Located at the entrance of Cabo San Lucas and stretching up to the oceanfront hotel zone, this Cabo San Lucas beach is the most popular family beach in Baja California. Not only because of the beautiful view, but also because it is one of Los Cabos’ savest beaches for swimming, the sea is very calm at Medano beach.

All snorkeling & water sporting equipment for rent are available. For water sports equipment you would probably end up at the Pisces Watersport Center, next to the Cascadas Resort, for parasailing, snorkeling, water skiing and more. Grab a bite at one of the outdoor restaurants.

Medano Beach doesn’t have the tranquility of Santa Maria or Palmilla Beach, but that’s another good thing about the beaches of Los Cabos; they come in a wide variety.

Lover’s Beach (Playa del Amor) also known as Playa de Doña Chepa, is an idyllic beach spot overlooked by El Arco, a natural arch, and the rocky pinnacles of Los Frailes. This Cabo San Lucas beach is only accessible by boat, so you will need to take a water taxi to get you there. One of Los Cabos’ mustgoto-beaches.

Divorce beach

The experience is unique every time. Here you can see the Sea of Cortez where it meets the Pacific Ocean to provide spectacular views of the sea. Bring a lunch box with you to the beach since you will probably want to stay there for most of the day sunbathing and swimming.

Divorce Beach is within walking distance from Lover’s Beach. White sandy beach, sunbathing and a laid back atmosphere in great setting is what you will get. However, if you are not an experienced swimmer, don’t risk yourself at swimming by Cabo San Lucas Divorce Beach since waves and currents are pretty fierce.

Twin Dolphin beach (Playa Las Viudas or Widows’ Beach) is a secluded beach where you will feel as if you were away from it all. Named after the nearby hotel, it has a spectacular shoreline with rock outcroppings and tidal pools to explore. Not a family beach because the sea is too dangerous to swim for children.

Located on the SouthWest of Los Cabos at Kilometer 12.5 is the perfect beach spot for an afternoon sunbath, surrounded by the most peaceful and serene nature you can imagine.

El Faro Viejo beach

El Faro Viejo beach

Playa Cabo Falso is a Cabo beach located where the old Cabo lighthouse stands. “El Faro Viejo,” as it is called in Spanish, used to guide ships between the U.S west coast and Panama and was thought to be (incorrectly) the city of Cabo, hence the name Cabo Falso.

You can even book an ATV tour over the hills to the lighthouse through local tour companies and travel agencies. Stop at the top of the sand dunes for a spectacular view.

To the east is Land’s End Beach (Finisterra), where the crashing of innumerable gulf and ocean waves have sculpted striking rock formations. Isolated beaches in the vicinity can be reached by boat or on foot from the Solmar Suites Resort. Only those in good physical condition should attempt to clamber over the rocks here, in order to reach every hidden Cabo San Lucas beach. It is advisable to travel with a partner.

Punta Colorada Beach. At Punta Colorada, the site of an old fishing village, you will find rocky beaches. As you travel south towards Punta Arena the beach becomes more sandy. Don’t take the road to the Punta Arena lighthouse; this is a military base so it is forbidden to be on that beach.

A wide and white sandy beach with a perfect view at the Pacific Ocean, it runs from the rock formations at Land’s End to Pedregal to the West.
