If you discover this beach, you have discovered one of my favorite places. Tucked away by the Hotel Twin Dolphin, Playa Las Viudas seems to almost always be secluded. Even if there are people around, you might never know due to the beaches unique little coves and volcanic rock formations. This is the perfect place to sun yourself for an afternoon (in the buff if youd like) and have a picnic, while enjoying the peaceful and serene nature that surrounds you.
The sapphire ocean off Playa Las Viudas beach shimmers in the sun, reflecting the reefs below, creating extraordinary beauty that makes the trip to this primitive beach inviting. These reefs are great for snorkeling, diving, and swimming; however, it is wise to use caution and only swim when the water is calm. Bring along your beach essentials: umbrella, hat, sun screen, lotion, water and anything else you deem necessary, since supplies are not available nearby. To find this charming retreat in paradise, turn right at KM 12.5 just before the Hotel Twin Dolphin entrance and follow the dirt road for about 7/10th of a mile down to the beach.
At certain times of the year, the sand can be relatively deep and soft and may require 4 wheel drive, but for the most part the road is navigable by any vehicle. There are several secluded spots in this area as you continue west along the beach toward the Cabo del Sol Golf Course and development. So enjoy a relaxing afternoon away from the bustle of downtown Cabo San Lucas and allow yourself to transcend to a more natural Los Cabos beach experience.

Las Viudas – Pristine
Also called Twin Dolphin Beach after the nearby hotel, the pristine shoreline is broken by lunar-looking rock outcroppings creating tidal pools and intimate areas to spend a lazy afternoonwith as much or as little privacy as you like. Swim with caution. Enter next to the Twin Dolphin hotel, on the southwest side at Kilometer 12.5.
