Fun on the waves
We had lots of fun swimming with the waves and what not. Even though sometimes we got sucked under and thrown around because of how strong the waves were, it was still fun. The water was always pretty nice and not too cold but good enough, better than here in Canada...lol
Santa Maria Beach...
There are lots of beaches in Cabo San Lucas and most of them a few kilometres out of town. On our way to San Jose del Cabo we were visiting the Santa Maria Beach. Like most beaches in Cabo, this one offers no parasols or restaurant/bars. Ok, the views are beautiful, but no bar ;o)
The Medano Beach is the only beach (as far I know) that offers parasols and restaurant/bars. Here you find also lots beach activities like a wave runner, parasailing, beach volley, bikini shows etc... For me this was the most pleasant beach as I like to sit after a swim with a cool beer and a snack. Only, the many peddlers here can be a real pain in the as*...
Although, close by the city centre, water taxis showing up like flies to take you to the marina in town. Nevertheless, you will need a water taxi to get to Lovers Beach...
Playa del Amor...
Lovers Beach at Land's End is the most beautiful beach in Cabo, and you can see there the both seas. On one side of the beach you can swim (or surf) in the Pacific Ocean, on the other side you find the more calm Sea of Cortez. Think about that this beach does not offer some parasols or restaurant/bars. There are some locals who selling cold beer for the price of US$ 5 (two beers by one). So, it is cheaper to bring your own cervesas ;o) Shade can be found behind the rocks. Remember also that you need a water taxi to come here...
The side of Sea of Cortez...
This sea is much calmer to swim and you will find most people on this side of the beach. This side of the beach is used by the water taxis to drop people off or take them back to the mainland...
El Medano Beach
This is the beach at Cabo San Lucas on the Sea of Cortez. This beach is beautiful and has amazing views. It is safe to swim here, and there are plenty of activities available, such as waverunners, snorkeling, kayaks and more. Vendors also line the beach trying to sell things from jewelry to clothes to pottery. My guess is you will spend the majority of your time here.

Lover's Beach/Divorce Beach
The final stop on the water taxi tour of the arch should bring you to Lover's Beach. You can also skip the tour and come straight here. This beach is on the Sea of Cortez side, and only accessible by boat. You can swim at Lover's Beach.
The other beach is called Divorce Beach and is on the Pacific Ocean. You cannot swim here, and do not be fooled by the natives trying to surf here. The undertow is dangerous and people have drowned.
There are rock formations to look at and climb, and the scenery is beautiful here. It is worth coming here to spend an hour or two.
Beach! Beach! Beach!

They make a big deal out of this place, i thought it was alright. I went there for a little while, got bored then took the water taxi back.
there are a couple of beaches (lover's beach and divorce beach) that you can only get to by water taxi or climbing the rocks...this is the way to do it!!
The Mariachi Guitarist
It remained unfettered and natural. It was work. A complete job. Always careful. A good tourist spot.

Lover's Beach ...
Just go there and find out, why this place is called "Lover's Beach" muhahahaha ;-)
See my travelogue for more photos.
Here you can go swimming and snorkelling, or just walk around the beach and tan. It's very nice and the taxi drops you off there and then says when he's coming back and then that's when you leave.
If you're staying at the Westin walk West past the large section of rocks and you'll find yourself all alone on an endless beach.
The Tequila man...
This Tequila man on the Medano Beach is not only selling Tequila, he is also a good comedian. It is really funny to see him busy and you may buy a shot from him...
