Santa Maria Beach, Cabo San Lucas

4.6
#4 of 9 in Beaches in Cabo San Lucas
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.

  • This is a beautiful beach! There was a large parking lot and bathrooms (no water as of Jan 4th 2018). The beach is cove-shaped, so it doesn't feel too crowded and the waters are very calm with some of...  more »
  • A few kilometers from the center of Cabo San Lucas, a small/medium sized Bay with surveillance, parking, clean bathrooms, drinking water and access to the sea. Nothing to do with the crowded Medano ... Along with El Chileno a few kilometres further on is my favorite beach. Crystal clear water and very easy! If you have no shelter from the Sun, choose a spot near the rocks at the ends! If you arrive early in the morning there are 6 public umbrellas to be occupied without problems! Advice!

Where to stay in Cabo San Lucas

Accommodations in Cabo San fall into two categories--those with easy beach access and those with a view. If you're mostly interested in swimming or diving, head to the neighborhood of El Medano Ejidal, where you can choose from a smorgasbord of luxury beach resorts and mid-range hotels. To take advantage of the area's dramatic scenery, look south to the cliff-top neighborhood of Pedregal, home to countless private rentals. For something more budget-friendly, check the streets in the city center, where the lack of sea views will be compensated with easy access to the city's best nightlife.
