Santa Maria Beach, Cabo San Lucas

(4.5/5 based on 900+ 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.

  • Just a very pleasant beach to visit. Be sure to bring sunscreen and beach shoes. Sand is granular and tender feet will complain  more »
  • We were only there for afternoon snacks and drinks. There is live music and people were dancing. Prices a bit on the high side. Great food.  more »
  • This beach is right down from grand fiesta Americana. So beautiful and calm which makes it great for snorkelling and swimming.  more »
