Shipwrecks

Shipwrecks Beach, East Cape Los Cabos, Baja California Sur, Mexico It is off the beaten path along the East Cape and perfect for those wanting seclusion. Shipwreck Beach was named after an actual offshore shipwreck that has since been removed. This uncrowded surf spot along the Sea of Cortés has a great right-hand point for surfers. It is about a 40-minute drive from San José del Cabo. There are few restaurants on the East Cape, so bring a cooler and shade. Vehicles with off-road capabilities are best for the rougher terrain. Shipwreck is just south of a small development named Rancho Rocas del Mar. Other notable beaches farther up the cape are Nine Palms, Punta Perfecta, and Los Frailes. Excerpt from Los Cabos Magazine Issue #24, April 2011:  Located below the small bluffs a few miles south of Playa Higuera. A big sandy beach with a right reef break at the south end, great for surfing and picnics! There are no services from San Jose del Cabo to north of Cabo Pulmo. You will find some of the most amazing coastal scenery you can imagine. The first named break is Shipwrecks. There is no longer a shipwreck here, which makes it difficult to locate. Keep your eyes peeled for Rancho Rocas del Mar. Shipwrecks Beach is located to the south. If there is not a strong south swell you probably...

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.
