Santa Maria Beach, Cabo San Lucas
(4.5/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web)
Snorkel on Santa Maria Beach a horseshoe-shaped stretch of sand nestled between cactus-covered cliffs. A protected area, the secluded beach is a haven for marine life, so bring snorkelling gear to explore the calm, clear waters filled with tropical fish. Lounge on the soft golden sand, sunbathe, or swim in the sea. The beach is relatively remote and offers little shade, so bring plenty of food and water, as well as a beach umbrella. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Cabo San Lucas holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Santa Maria Beach and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Is a beach newly certified by the Blue Flag, very clean with palapas, bathrooms, parking and containers of garbage, ideal to make snorkeling, with waves not so high to the be a small Bay. Only be can get in car or bus as is in the road transpeninsular.

  • Easy walking along beach. Go north to the point and see new hotels or south to the peers and Old Town Cabo. 
  • Beautiful beach that also was very well kept. Restrooms were also nearby and parking was plentiful. Well worth checking out.
