Less popular, but ideal for a picnic, is Las Viudas or Widow’s Beach on the west side of the now closed Twin Dolphin Hotel. Tide pools with interesting marine life are fun for the exploring adult or child.

For colorful fish and living coral, pack a lunch, your snorkeling gear, and head to Santa Maria Bay. This protected moon-shaped bay, surrounded by rugged cliffs, is ideal for families. Snorkeling and diving are best in the morning, and the best visi-bility is in summer months. Santa Maria is one of the best swimming beaches in Los Cabos.

Chileno Bay is near the highway at Km14. Smooth water and a long swath of sandy beach make this an ideal family spot for swimming, snorkeling, and diving along the reef where marine life abounds. Bring your beach umbrella, a good book, and fall asleep to the sound of the gentle surf. Or, for the more ambitious, bring your kayak or canoe. A little more remote are the beaches hidden at the southwest end.

A man-made stone jetty fronting the Melia Cabo Real and Hilton Hotels creates a safe haven for swimming and water sports. Rent water toys, or explore expansive and almost deserted beaches around the hotel. It’s a great beach for walking, jogging, and horseback riding.

The long, wide bay makes this an ideal destination for families. Located at Km. 27, and 18 miles north of Cabo San Lucas, this tranquil beach winds around the bay with the One and Only Palmilla Resort on the Palmilla point. If fishing is your thing, pangas (small boats) and cruisers are available for charter, and are fun to watch as they return with their catch (they don‘t call it “Marlin Alley” for nothing!).

San José del Cabo
San José del Cabo’s beaches stretch for more than five miles along a gentle curving bay. Although not recommended for swimming, the virtually undisturbed long, empty stretches of sandy beach, only a mile from downtown, are ideal for walking, jogging, shore fishing, horseback riding, and beachcombing for sea treasures.

Famous for its world-class waves, Costa Azul (the blue coast), at the start of San José ’s beach zone, is popular among surf-ers, boasting some of the best surfing in Mexico from June through October. If surfing is not your sport, it’s fun to people-watch.

Despite nearby hotels, Hotel Beach is relatively free of commercial activity, and has few vendors. Palapas (umbrellas made of palm fronds) are available in front of the hotels and at the public access, Playa Las Palmas. Hotel Beach is perfect for sunbathing, strolling, beach volleyball, and surf fishing. On the extreme east end is the San José Estuary, home to migratory birds, and a nursery for endangered sea turtles. Take a moment and you might see a stately egret wading in the shallow water foraging for an aquatic meal.

The evening show starts with the sunset, followed by the tang of romance—moonrise on the beach. What could be better to end a delightful day at one of Los Cabos’ beaches? It is said if you leave with sand in your shoes, you will return. We hope that is true, many times over.
