The Beaches of Los Cabos


A Picture Perfect SettinG



Lover's and Divorce Beaches are as close as you can get to Land's End, the peninsula's southernmost point, without a boat. However, you will need to hire a water taxi or other water-based transportation to access them. Lover's Beach is on the Sea of Cortes side, and offers safe swimming and very good snorkelling conditions. Neighboring Divorce Beach is accessible through a break in the rocks, and is distinguished by crashing Pacific Ocean waves. Due to the strong rip currents, you can not swim on this side. 




One of the signature beaches in the San Jose del Cabo area, Playa Costa Azul offers sun, sand and surf, plus plenty of great food and drink at Zipper's Bar and Grill. 




If you want to escape the crowds and jump in the ocean for a swim, head to Palmilla Beach Cabo, a gorgeous Blue Flag beach. There, under a peaceful palapa, you can spend your day reading a good book, or you can take a walk along the shore before jumping into the Palmilla Beach swimmable waters. The water is calm and brilliantly blue. It is one of the best swimmable beaches in Cabo. 

Playa Palmilla hosts many events throughout the year. Notably, it is both the start and the finish of the swim portion of the annual Ironman Triathlon event. Daytime happenings involve watching local fisherman launching their boats for a daily catch of the day directly from them to cook up at your home or even at a local restaurant. 



Chileno Beach is another "best swimmable beach in Cabo" that was awarded the international Blue Flag certification. One of the cleanest beaches in Los Cabos, this striking swath of golden sand is tucked away just off the Golden Corridor near 14 km. Tranquil waters make for calm snorkelling condition, and a bounty of tide pools beg for exploration. A ban on motorized waterspouts means you're a tranquil experience.

Boasting a  paved parking lot, bathrooms, showers, shade palaces and disabled access, it is easy to see why Chileno Beach is a favourite of locals and visitors alike. 




Topping the list of best swimming beaches in Los Cabos is Santa Maria Beach. To begin with, this protected marina area is a tranquil place and relatively secluded. It makes an excellent spot for swimming and snorkelling. So, you may make a few "marine friends" during your swim. This beach was awarded the international Blue Flag certification, which signifies the highest-possible environmental and water quality standards. That means you can find both lifeguards and sanitation services there. 



Medano Beach is considered the main swimming beach in San Lucas. Full of beach restaurants, vendors and beach lounger rentals, if you don't mind all the commerce, you'll definitely satisfy that need for time in the water. For added perks such as water sports equipment rentals, head to one of the area's beach clubs. 




Approximately 1.5 miles of white sand beach offers the ideal setting to relax, sunbathe or simply take a reflective walk listening to the light crash of the Pacific waves. From your chair on the beach or spot on the golf course, you will likely see California Gray whales spouting offshore. It’s a spectacular sight to watch the whales breaching during their migration months from late fall through March. Or perhaps enjoying a few drinks at the nearby bar during a bright red Baja sunset is more your speed. Whatever the mood, the beach at Diamante is an oasis for all who seek natural beauty and adventure.

Diamante’s beach is a picture-perfect setting to drop a blanket down, enjoy a romantic picnic and watch the sunset. If the Diamante beaches and dunes look familiar, you may have seen them in the major motion picture “Troy,” which was shot on the property. It is where Achilles (Brad Pitt) landed on our spectacular beach and stormed up the large sand dunes to face Hector’s army.
