Rated as a top beach destination by Blue Flag, the calm waters of Chileno are sure to soothe your soul and provide plenty of beach day fun. This beach is ideal for sunbathing and lounging on the warm sand, making it the perfect spot for catching some rays on your laid-back beach trip. Don’t forget your sunglasses and beach reads!
With over a mile of soft white sand—perfect for romantic sunset walks on the beach with that special someone—Pamilla Beach features stunning natural beauty. Like Chileno, it’s been awarded the International Blue Flag Certification. As a result, Pamilla’s deep blue waters are clear, and the beach is clean and well-maintained. There are lifeguards present on the shore, and public washrooms are available.
As picturesque as its name would suggest, this beach can only be accessed by boat. Thankfully, due to the many water taxis available, this is easy to accomplish, and you’ll be rewarded with ideal swimming conditions and gorgeous views of fascinating rock formations. Neptune’s Finger is one of the most famous of these and gets its name because its long, crooked form looks just like a finger rising out of the ocean.
This marine sanctuary is the best beach for swimming or snorkeling because of its protected waters. There’s plenty of marine life for you to witness up close and personal, including thousands of vibrant tropical fish! Its lack of urban development has helped to preserve its pristine shores, making it an ideal choice for a serene atmosphere—but don’t forget to bring everything you need for a day at the beach with you.
Considered one of the main tourist attractions in Cabo, Medano Beach is the prime location for water sports of all kinds, including kayaking and parasailing. Nearby, you’ll find a variety of restaurants serving delicious local cuisine all day long.
As a recognized National Marine Park, Cabo Pulmo is a shining jewel of pristine turquoise waters and abundant wildlife. It’s ideal for ecotourism because of the many species that make their home amongst its reef (the only hard coral reef in the Gulf of California), and snorkeling and scuba diving are popular activities as a result. Experience the unspoiled natural wonder of this beautiful beach!
The Cannery Beaches are three beaches situated side-by-side and take their name from the historic Cabo San Lucas tuna factory that once existed there. The building still stands at the far edge of the beach and is an interesting bit of Cabo history at the turn of the twentieth century. The Cannery Beaches are located close to the marina and many restaurants, making it a convenient spot for the ultimate beach day.
It’s important to note that although these beautiful beaches tend to have calmer waters that allow for swimming, conditions can change depending on the weather, season, tides, etc. Cabo is best known to have beaches that are great for surfing, kite surfing and water sports and has limited areas that are calm enough for good swimmers to enjoy. For that reason, swimmers should always use discretion and common sense when entering the ocean and swim at their own risk
