The Go Cabo Beach Guide

By Charly Torosian


We’ve been to all of the beaches in Cabo San Lucas, and the ones you need to know about are right here. Be advised that no beach on the Pacific side of Cabo is good for swimming. The waters and waves are far too treacherous there. If you want to swim and do some watersports, then we highly recommend you visit a beach on the more popular bayside of Los Cabos (the bay is shown in the map on our homepage). That said, here’s our roundup of the best beaches in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
