Cabo San Lucas Area Beach Listings

Los Cabos is home to many beautiful beaches, a few of which, like Lover’s and Médano, are endlessly extolled by travel and guidebook writers. But there is one beach that never seems to be mentioned, despite the fact that its location is so central to Cabo San Lucas that it borders the entrance to the Cabo San Lucas Marina, and it is mere steps from the building that housed the town’s primary commercial enterprise prior to widespread, government-sponsored tourism.  The following are located in the general area of downtown Cabo San Lucas. Playa el Medano (Medano Beach), Divorce Beach, Lover’s Beach, Playa Solmar, Cannery Beaches, Pedregal Beach, and more.

The following are locatedin the San José del Cabo area.   La Playita, Playa Hotelera, El Estero, Zippers, Playa Estero, Costa Azul on the Sea of Cortez in the San Jose del Cabo area.

Todos Santos Area

beachesPlaya de Agua Blanca Beach is part of the Todos Santos beach frontage, situated in the town of Todos Santos. Las Pocitas is northwest of town. Beautiful, yet watch for the waves and undertow when there is a big swell. This is best for surfing than for swimming. Playa La Pastora is north of town, take Topete.  Go past the Agua Blanca campground signs. Stunning Beach, best for advanced surfing.  Playa Punta Lobos is located just south of town at Km. 54, then west 1.5 miles to the beach. The closest beach to “downtown” Todos Santos, Playa Punta Lobos, is used by the local fisherman to launch their boats.

Nude Beach or Topless Sunbathing

This is a perpetually popular search topic, despite the fact, or perhaps because there really aren’t any…at least not officially. Public nudity in México is illegal, although there are exceptions to this rule. Playa Zipolite in Oaxaca, por ejemplo, famously has a nude-friendly section at its western end, one that is officially sanctioned. This sort of thing is a rarity, however, in a predominantly Catholic country with largely conservative views on the subject.
