Top 8 Must Visit Beaches in Los Cabos

With so many beaches to see, we’ve made a list to help you narrow down those to visit based on what you’re looking for.


#9 Tule.

This beach is a bit more secluded, making it a better space and option for surf lessons. Not for swimming. There aren’t any restaurants here yet, so plan to go to lunch before or after you visit.

#8 Acapulquito.

A surf spot closer to San Jose del Cabo. Recommended for water activities such as surfing or stand-up paddle, not recommended for swimming. There is a restaurant/ hotel above the beach with great brunch options.


#7 Monument Beach.

Located right under The Cape, A Thompson Hotel in Cabo has amazing waves if you’re looking for a surf spot. Not swimmable. Great location for a nice dinner with gorgeous views.

#6 Playa El Ganzo.

Located at El Ganzo Hotel in San Jose del Cabo, this beach has ocean-side service from 10 am to 7 pm during the summer and 10 am to 6 pm in the winter. Swim friendly!





#5 Playa Cerritos.

Great surf spot for every level of surfer, from beginners to those looking to hang ten. With everything from surf lessons to great restaurants, you can find something to do here.


#4 Lover’s Beach.

Lover’s Beach is this little strip of sand that you can’t reach by foot or car. You can only get to it through the water, by a boat, kayak, stand-up paddle, etc. Though it might sound like a secluded beach, it is a very popular spot!

Bonus Beach:

Divorce Beach. An honorable mention that didn’t make the cut is Divorce Beach. Separating Lover’s Beach and Divorce Beach is the Arch; on Lover’s side, we have the Sea of Cortez, the view most people would think of when imagining the Arch. On the other side, we have the Pacific Ocean, which is anything but peaceful. With overpowering undercurrents and massive waves, Divorce Beach is a better spot for laying out and tanning or reading a book than for a swim.


Chileno Beach in San Jose del Cabo, Mexico.

#3 Chileno Beach.

A gorgeous, swimmable beach with clear, blue waters and some rockiness to snorkel. It has a paved parking lot with wheelchair access. It also has bathrooms with showers so you can rinse off before you get back in your car.


#2 Santa Maria.

This was a close second. This would have won if we were just talking about how beautiful the beaches are. It's swimmable, and there is so much to see here; make sure to snorkel!


Medano Beach lined with hotels.

#1 Medano.

This beach has everything if you’re looking for something to do, from nice brunch spots to day drinking and vendors up and down the shore with almost anything you could want. Plus, it’s swimmable!
