For some, it's a deserted strand of soft golden beach sand, meandering far into a peerless horizon. To others, a day at the beach includes the human element. For them, the perfect place is synonymous with bikinis, watersports and people watching. In the municipality of Los Cabos, an area comprising roughly half of the Baja peninsula below the capital city of La Paz, including Cabo San Lucas, San Jose del Cabo, The Tourist Corridor and Todos Santos, nature has graciously provided a beach for all, regardless of one's expectations.
While other parts of the globe may boast their own beautiful beaches, Cabo San Lucas and the Los Cabos area have abundant stunning coasts and, unlike much of the world, fewer crowds. Here beaches offer a cornucopia of variety, from the wild and windswept Pacific ocean coast to placid Sea of Cortez bays and coves; the latter seemingly created for nothing more than lazy days of sybaritic snorkeling and lolling about in the surf.
Join us as we explore the Los Cabos coast. Our list does not pretend to cover every inch of sand, however, the beaches we have listed are reasonably accessible by foot or rental car. A few are even on the local bus route, making day trips a breeze. We've beefed up our coverage of Corridor beaches to include nearby services, points of interest and things to do. But if you've got it in your head to rent an all terrain vehicle (ATV), dune buggy or four wheel drive vehicle and hit the sand, think again, motorized equipment is illegal on the beaches of Cabo San Lucas and the Los Cabos area, and especially deadly to endangered turtle hatchlings and our fragile ecosystem.
To enjoy this beach game you'll need a few supplies. We suggest you include plenty of fresh water, hats, sunscreen for UVA & UVB rays, protein snacks, beverages, toilet paper, and insect repellant during the rainy season. If you plan to be gone all day, bear in mind that very few beaches have any shade, fresh water or restroom facilities. Pack an extra plastic trash bag and carry out all garbage. Affordable beach umbrellas and Styrofoam coolers are easily found in San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas and make all the difference after several hours in the strong Baja California Sur sun. If you're staying after dark, bring warm clothes. Desert nights are often cool and windy, especially from December to March. On side trips, check fluids, gas and the location of spare tire and jack ahead of time. Don't let a dream of a day in the sun on the beach become your worst nightmare.
While the desert is a rugged place, the ocean can be even more foreboding. Never turn your back on her. Practice extreme caution when venturing into unknown surf and stay well above the tide line when walking. Beaches with rough surf should never be used for swimming or family play. Pacific side beaches are notorious for rogue waves and undertows. When in doubt, stay out. With that in mind, enjoy! Article By Sabrina Lear.
