Deciding which beach is the best beach in Los Cabos isn’t an easy task. When I visited Los Cabos this past fall after not visiting Los Cabos because I listened to people who said Mexico was too dangerous I came to the conclusion… there are simply too many great beaches to choose just one as Cabo’s best beach.
Some are more picturesque than others, some offer safe swimming and exceptional snorkeling while others have great surf breaks or tidal pools that make beachcombing a terrific way to spend a day just relaxing and sunbathing. Best Beaches in Cabo / Travel Blogger / Black Travel Blogger

Lover’s Beach/Divorce Beach
Despite the name, Lover’s Beach is not just for lovers. It is nestled along the dramatically sculpted rock formations at Land’s end, adjacent to “The Arch”, this quiet little strand can only be reached by water taxi. Lover’s Beach offers great snorkeling and diving on the bay side when the weather is good.
After checking out Lover’s Beach walk the short distance to the Pacific side and you will make it to Divorce Beach, where swimming is NOT recommended if you want to stay alive. The powerful surf and undertow is how Divorce Beach got its name. Don’t forget to arrange your pick up time if you don’t want to be stranded on Divorce Beach with a bunch of funky sea lions.
One of the best kept secrets in Los Cabos in Cannery Beach which is about a 10-minute walk from the marina.

The 20 mile Corridor between Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo offers plenty of options. About halfway between the two towns, you’ll find one of the three Blue Flag certified beaches in Los Cabos. Playa Chileno is particularly known for its fabulous snorkeling. The water’s visibility and tranquility make it perfect for admiring marine life with or without an underwater camera.
You will see parrotfish and angelfish, along with moray eels, sea turtles, sea urchins, sponges and starfish just to name a fish. Best Beaches in Cabo / travel Blogger
Playa Chileno is one the few beaches that offer shade in the form of palapas. Visitors can also expect other amenities, including restrooms and showers on the beach. Hundreds of palm trees provide plenty of shade but make sure you bring your own snacks and beverages because of there very few vendors or restaurants nearby.

Playa Santa Maria is another Blue Flag-certified beach. Its horseshoe shape keeps this beach feeling like you are on your very own private beach. Playa Santa Maria has outstanding swimming, snorkeling or simply scoping out a variety of tropical fish. Best Beaches in Cabo / Travel Blogger
The third Blue Flag-certified beach, Punta Palmilla where you can see whales and their calves from the shore during the migration season. You can also find good snorkeling all year, as the waters are clear and perfect swimming. As with most beaches, you need to be prepared because as there is nothing other than shade. No food, no water, no cocktails so make sure you bring what you need because you cant drink salt water. Best Beaches in Cabo / Travel Blogger / Black Travel Blogger
