The Cannery Beaches are know by several names: Playa Coral Negro, Playa El Balcón, Playa Balconcito and Playa Escondida. These two beaches are the least used in the area, except by local families. They love it because they can keep a watchful eye on their children who can swim while mother and father fish from the pier above. Note: 2012 – The fishing pier was removed several years ago. The beaches, Playa Escondida and Playa El Balcón, are also known as the Cannery Beaches, because in year past these beaches flanked a pier (no longer) belonging to an old abandoned tuna cannery. The beaches are easy to access by walking along the west bank of the marina and are hard to miss. Photo: Cannery Beaches, Cabo San Lucas 2004
