Lover’s Beach is another “must-see” spot during your stay in Cabo San Lucas. Pick up a glass bottom boat or a water taxi from the Marina or along Playa Medano. Don’t forget to bargain because what was supposedly a twelve dollar round trip quickly dropped to ten dollars when we told the boatman that ten was the price we had been told the day before.
Our glass bottom boat left Medano Beach for the short cruise across the bay. The snorkeling in the usually warm water in front of Lover’s Beach is excellent, every bit as good as the party boat trip we had taken a couple days earlier. Our boat stopped so we could observe small fish though the glass bottom, then continued on to look at the sea lions sun bathing near El Arco (the Arch). When the boat pulled ashore, we were greeted by locals who helped get us and our gear out of the boat (for a tip, of course).
Lover’s Beach, which faces out to the Sea of Cortez, is often crowded and is more or less the party beach. But there are no concessions so bring your own food, beer, sunscreen, and beach towels. The Pacific side of the peninsula is less crowded and far more romantic, so it’s definitely worth crossing over for a visit. Sometimes referred to as Divorce Beach, this area along the Pacific has dramatic sand dunes and rock formations, as well as dangerous currents and riptides, so swimming should be avoided.
To return to the Marina or Medano Beach, just set a pick-up time with your skipper before you disembark and make sure to remember the name of your boat! He’ll be there at the appointed hour to pick you up
The city icon and one of the most photograped places in the world. The only way to get there is by boat You can hire one at the Marina, ($10.00) , it will take you to visit the Arch, some interesting rock formations around and then a visit to the other side of the peninsula in the Pacific Ocean. Then you can stay at Love´s Beach for some time, the boat will wait for you.
Located south of Playa del Amor, is a very small beach, very difficult to reach and with dangerous strong currents and crashing waves. It´s not a good place for swiming so my opinion is to stay in the nice Playa del Amor.
A wonderfull beach located between the rocks with views of the Pacific Ocean and the Mar de Cortez, to get to this marvel you need to get a water taxi at the Marina. Once there you´re surrounded by towering rocks and the sea.
The most popular beach of Cabo San Lucas, always crowded, and full of vendors, is located very close to the downtown marina. It begins in the east side of the harbour, extending for some miles until reach the small village of Villa del Palmar. A place to see and be seen between local and visitors, is where he action is.

The beach at Santa Maria is nice and calm with warm water. The sand is alittle coarse and rough on the feet. The snorkeling is average with a lot of colorful fish that hang around only because they are fed by every passing boat and snorkel tour. The big snorkel boats are noisy and bring quite a lot of chaos to an otherwise quiet area.
The Office is a great bar/restaurant located on the beach near the center of the city. If you are looking to party on the beach during the day, this is the place to be. When I was here in March 2006 it was packed full of college students. The margaritas are tasty, large, and very strong. If you are looking to go to the beach to relax this is not the place for you.
Probably my favorite beach there. You have to be on the lookout for this beach becuause it is not that highly advertised.
I only found out about this beach due to my whale watching tour. The tour started in cabo san lucas marina and they took us to this little cove called santa maria to snorkel for an hour or so. The water here is very very calm and so clear! You can see fish from your boat without any googles. Simply amazing.Getting there is simple if you k now what you're looking for. Once you get dropped off at the bus stop, walk down the hill toward the water.
You will find a parking lot where an old mexican man will be awaiting your arrival. If you do drive just park your car there and he'll take care of it for a small tip :)
He was a very nice guy. He even offered to drive me back to my hotel had it been on the way to his home in cabo san lucas.
Now don't get me wrong, you should never operate a vehicle of any sort while intoxicated.. but if you are dumb like me, and like to live on the edge.. you MIGHT want to try it in cabo lol.
After my whale watching tour I went to midano beach and found a place that rents wave runners. I've never been on one but I was on vacation so I thought why not.
You can take the wave runner anywhere on the bay area. You can even ride it to the lovers beach that I mentioned previously but you cannot dock there just ride by. It was so much fun especially when you're drunk lol.
The price is about $50 for 30 mins but its well worth it. Besides.. you're on vacation money well spent.
I was able to ride the waves but the waters are still pretty calm so no need to worry about much. It was great times.. might even top sex.. but not sure if it was as fun if I wasn't drunk.. but drunk sex is always fun too.. ok enough of that lol.
