What is your ideal dream Los Cabos Vacation? As we explore the best things to do in Cabo San Lucas, a great place to start your vacation is with the basics – the Beach.
The Los Cabos area is made up of two main towns, San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas and both towns are connected with a 20-mile stretch of beaches along the Sea of Cortez, named the Tourist Corridor. Most of the beaches are located on the Sea of Cortez which has a variety of beaches to choose from. Some beaches offer scenic beautiful rock formations with pounding waves crashing on the shore, while other beaches are stunning long stretches of sand for soaking in the sun, strolling, or horseback riding.

Public Beaches Verses Resort Beaches
Long empty stretches of sand are common along the beach. All the beaches are basically open to the public but be aware that resorts are permitted to claim the beach above the high tide line and area is sometimes blocked off. Otherwise, you’re free to stroll, explore, and settle on most any beach.
Cabo San Lucas Beaches
Cabo San Lucas has three main beaches: Medano Beach, Lovers Beach, and the Cannery Beaches, each offering unique experiences. Medano Beach is the most popular beach in downtown Cabo San Lucas which includes an array of resorts, water activity rentals, and bars/restaurants. Lovers beach (Playa de Amor) is accessible by water taxi only from the marina to Lands End. Lovers Beach boasts the most popular attraction in Cabo, the famous stone arch (El Arco). For a more peaceful beach experience, you can discover the Cannery (also known as Playa Coral Negro) beaches. This hidden gem is a public beach, but also very private with no vendors.
The Tourist Corridor Beaches are located on the Sea of Cortés between Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo. You will find a variety of swimming, non-swimming, shore fishing, and surfing beaches including Monuments Beach, Punta Ballena, Shipwreck Beach, Widow’s Beach, Santa Maria Beach, Chileno, El Tule, Palmilla, Tequila Cover, Old Man’s Beach, Costa Azul and others.
