Visit Chileno Beach
A day at the beach is often ideal for the solo traveler to Cabo and Chileno Beach is a wonderful option while you’re in town. Buses run between Cabo San Lucas and Chileno Beach approximately every 30 minutes meaning you don’t have to worry about providing your own transportation. The appeal of Chileno Beach often lies in it’s off the beaten path feel that’s in large part due to a lack of on-site restaurants and stores. This makes for a more natural ambiance to be enjoyed while the area’s shallow waters are also ideal for those that like to snorkel.
See El Arco de Cabo San Lucas
This famous attraction is must-see for solo travelers in Cabo. You can see this natural arch from Medano Beach, but its natural beauty is much better appreciated up close.

The stunning rock formations and picturesque Lover’s Beach at the arch are at the top for any trip to Cabo.

At Santa Maria Bay, snorkeling tours arrive in the morning and early afternoon for the best visibility to swim among colorful schools of tropical fish and coral reefs.
