Santa Maria Beach, Cabo San Lucas

4.5
#4 of 13 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. Put Santa Maria Beach into our Cabo San Lucas trip planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Cabo San Lucas.

  • Very beautiful beach, small amount of vendors, not very annoying. Just a short uber ride from town. Would definitely go to this beach again. No restaurants or bars, so you have to pack drinks and food...  more »
  • Another hidden gem . Nice for an afternoon make sure you bring an umbrella sometimes it's a little windy here. But just beautiful relaxing. The water is just gorgeous. Pack a lunch put some sunscreen ...  more »
  • The Picture is very beautiful, gently sloping entrance into the water, but there are TWO LARGE BUT-by noon in the Bay go to 10 yachts and boats, bringing tourists from the Kabas, the people becomes very much, and the water was incredibly dirty (not muddy water, namely industrial debris-packages, Oil stains on the water, empty bottles), I think that this yacht crews do not bother with the disposal of marine debris, after two swimming desire to swim at me is gone, and the beach is very clean and beautiful! For 12 days went on it a couple of times-the result is the same and found a more suitable and clean beach!
