Most visitors to Los Cabos are familiar with the names Medano Beach, Lover’s Beach, and Divorce Beach. And though these are indeed stunning stretches of coastline and are well-known for a reason, Cabo offers so many additional options for exploring along the coastline. Take some time while in Cabo to experience the beauty of some of the other amazing beaches located in the area such as the Cannery Beaches!
Best Beaches in Cabo – History and Sand Collide
The Cannery Beaches are places both of beauty and of history. These beaches are situated in Cabo San Lucas just to the west of the Cabo Marina. The Cannery Beaches are actually a string of three beaches situated close together. The one closest to the marina is also known as Playa Empacadora and Playa Coral Negro.
At the Cannery Beaches, you can experience a bit of Cabo history alongside a good old-fashioned day at the beach. This stretch of coastline is referred to as Cannery Beach because it is the site of the old Cabo San Lucas tuna cannery. Before the boom of tourism, a major part of the town’s commercial enterprise was this tuna cannery. Dating back to the early 1900s, there also used to be a large pier jutting out into the water near the building. Though the cannery has long been closed, the building still stands along the far end of the beach and is a glimpse back into the past of Old Cabo.
Today, people come to the Cannery Beaches to enjoy a day at the beach, and the old cannery building has simply become part of the beach’s backdrop. Located close to the marina and just across the channel from Medano Beach, the Cannery Beaches remain right in the midst of all of the Cabo San Lucas action. Its location makes it a convenient stopping off point for anyone visiting Cabo San Lucas. These are one of the best beaches in Cabo!

JM Italian Steakhouse
Additional options for Italian cuisine are available at the nearby JM Italian Steakhouse. Relatively new to Cabo’s restaurant scene, JM is gaining a strong reputation for their high-quality food and service. Chef and owner Jimmy Maddin grew up tagging along with his musician father to play gigs with big names such as Louie Armstrong, Frank Sinatra, and Bob Hope, and he has brought this same vibe into his Cabo restaurant with frequent live music performances. JM Italian Steakhouse offers pasta dishes made from scratch with flour from Italy. Start your meal off with an order of oysters Rockefeller or a fresh green salad. Entrees include classic Italian pastas, hand cut steaks, and fresh seafood dishes. For a mix of both fresh seafood and pasta, the Seafood Fra Diavolo is a top favorite. It is packed with shrimp, mussels, clams, and calamari served over a bed of linguine and coated with spicy red sauce. For those who prefer their meat from the land, the slow roasted prime rib is cooked to perfection.
