Happy Friday from Cabo, my friends!
I hope you have had a wonderful week. We return home tomorrow, so I thought I would share some info about some of the beautiful beaches here in Los Cabos.
As I shared before, you can’t swim on the Pacific side, due to the heavy undertow and drop-offs close to shore. Believe me, when you see the big surf, you really do not want to swim there! But it is pretty to watch. Here is the surf along the Pacific Ocean toward Land’s End.
The most popular and safest beach is Medano Beach, right next to the Port on the Sea of Cortez side. It has a beautiful view of the rocky point separating the Pacific Ocean from the Sea of Cortez. Since it is the center of Cabo San Lucas, it can be really busy as there is much to do there. It is the safest beach along this coast. You can rent wave runners, kayaks and paddleboards and sign up for parasailing and boat tours. You can even get there by water taxi from almost anywhere in the harbor. It is typical old Mexico, with lots of vendors and really fun cantinas and restaurants on the sand. The view is spectacular, as it is almost anywhere along the Corridor.
At the main entrance to Medano Beach is this statue of a fisherman, as fishing has been and continues to be a main attraction here.
Probably the next most famous beach is Lover’s Beach, which is the closest to Land’s End. You can swim and snorkel there as well. It faces the Harbor and there are no vendors. Another popular beach, adjacent to that, is Divorce Beach; you just walk through a gap in the rocks to the Pacific side, where it is pretty but not swim-able.
Along the corridor between San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas are some great views and some beautiful beaches. Many are safe for swimming, but with care, and several have great places for snorkeling. Some are more accessible than others, due to the many hotels along this route.
Here are two photos of spectacular beaches:
We’ve had a wonderful time here in Cabo. It will be nice to go home for 10 days before we head out on our next adventure to Portland, Oregon. And then, two weeks after that, we head to Northern Michigan. Yikes! Busy summer, but so many fun things to do and great friends to see.
I hope you’ve enjoyed following along on our trip and I thank you for taking the time to read my posts. Hopefully, it will inspire you to go somewhere you haven’t been before!
Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy the beautiful summertime.
