12 Best Beaches in Cabo, Mexico

There are plenty of superb beaches in Cabo! Many beaches are red-flagged as non-swimmable because of strong waves, steep ocean floor drop-offs and undertows. So be sure you heed the warnings!

In particular, most beaches on the Pacific Ocean side of Cabo are too dangerous for swimming. But the collision of blue ocean and long wide stretches of gold sand there is scenically stunning!

Medano Beach

Of all the beaches in Los Cabos, Playa el Medano is probably the best. The  tequila-clear turquoise waters are usually calm, with very little surf. It is, unsurprisingly, the most popular.


For a couple of hours, it’s worth shaking out your towel on Lover’s Beach at the tip of Land’s End. Striking rock formations tower above on either side.

Divorce Beach

It contrasts nicely with the calm waters of Lover’s Beach across the other side of the sand. The strong rip tides and crashing waves make swimming extremely dangerous here.


Chileno Beach

It was certified a “Blue Flag” beach in 2015 for its clean water quality. Chileno Beach is safe for swimming and offers excellent snorkeling for older children and adults.

Playa Bledito

To chill in style, get a day pass at the Hilton’s new Enclave Beach Club. It features a boardwalk, beach chairs shaded by umbrellas and a waterfront bar serving.


Playa Solmar

Playa Solmar is free of beach vendors. And it’s perfect for a long stroll on thick golden sand. Keep your eyes out for passing whales in winter! The sunsets in Cabo are also spectacular here.
