Whether you want to soak up the rays on the sand, take to cruising the waves, explore the marine life or simply enjoy a day at the beach, Cabo has something for you. Read on to find your perfect beach.

Cabo San Lucas

Lover’s Beach: Bring your special someone to this beach, one of the more popular spots in Cabo. Accessed only via water, the small beach is located on the Sea of Cortez side on Land’s End near the El Arco and is ideal for relaxing.

Divorce Beach: Located on the Pacific side of Land’s End, this stretch of beach is opposite Lover’s Beach and is perfect for relaxing and sunbathing. Since the tide is so strong on the Pacific side, we recommend staying out of the water for this one.

Medano Beach: For the safest swimming experience, Medano Beach is your best bet. Stretching from the marina past Monuments Beach, you’ll find all sorts of water sports and activities. Plus, it’s located near many of Cabo San Lucas’ resorts for convenient access.
