As a destination well known for its pristine white sand beaches, it is no surprise that Los Cabos offers an array of options when it comes to spending a day along the shoreline. From bustling Medano Beach in Cabo San Lucas to the tranquil stretches of sand dotting the 20-mile stretch between Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo known as the Tourist Corridor, you can take your pick from a long list of postcard-perfect beaches located in Cabo. We suggest you stop at Santa Maria Beach in Cabo San Lucas at least once during your Cabo getaway!
On the Santa Maria Beach in Los Cabos
Santa Maria Beach in Cabo San Lucas is located along the Tourist Corridor. With rocky outcroppings at each end, this crescent-shaped beach enjoys protection from larger swells and often boasts calm waters perfect for swimming. With few facilities or vendors, you likely won’t be ordering a Mai Tai or enjoy a freshly cooked meal along this shoreline. However, the seclusion of Santa Maria Beach is a large part of its appeal. Pack a picnic lunch and some beach towels and enjoy the natural beauty that is apparent at Santa Maria Beach.
Not only a beautiful beach but also a marine sanctuary, Santa Maria Beach is a great place to explore the underwater world if you bring along a mask, snorkel, and fins. The water is calmest and clearest during morning hours, so be sure to consider this factor when planning your excursion. Santa Maria Beach in Los Cabos is a popular stop for boat charters offering scuba diving and snorkeling excursions, so boats can often be seen anchored offshore. Head here in the early morning or late afternoon if you’d prefer not to share the beach and water with many other travelers. Santa Maria Beach is a beautiful beach not to be missed during your trip to Cabo!
Planning Your Excursion to Santa Maria Beach
