Lover’s Beach

Lover’s Beach – Playa del Amor Cabo San Lucas, Los Cabos, Baja California Sur, Mexico Why: The views of Médano Beach and the entire coastline from Cabo San Lucas to Punta Ballena are spectacular.

The neighboring Divorce Beach is equally beautiful and accessible by walking through a gap in the rocks to the Pacific Ocean side. When: Lover’s and Divorce Beaches are lightly populated in the morning, and both are perfect spots for picnic brunches. You’ll have to pack your own supplies,...

Santa Maria Beach – Playa Santa Maria Excerpt from Los Cabos Magazine Issue 44, Summer 2016. Bahía Santa María (Santa María Bay) Why: This lovely horseshoe-shaped beach has, like nearby Chileno, possibly lost a bit of its natural luster due to recent hotel development.

PLEASE READ. We have recently launched our updated Cabo San Lucas Beaches website. Please note that the dates shown on posts are the dates the new files went online, not the dates of the photos or information. We have added dates for the more recent images but kept the older photos for comparison. In most cases the beach information was not updated during the month of September 2016. We do have new photos and information (within the last six months) about the following beaches: Santa Maria, Chileno Beach, El Tule, Monuments, Palmilla, and Playa Las Viudas. We will be updating beach information regularly in the future. We will also have a link to a form so you can submit suggested changes or comments about your favorite Los Cabos area beach. We welcome submissions of new photos with a description and information to include for the credit.
