One of the top highlighted swimmable beaches in Los Cabos is Playa Chileno along the Tourist Corridor. Its draw is not due to the flashy and busy shores such as at Cabo San Lucas’ Medano Beach, but a more laid-back atmosphere permeates the area. The calm, azure blue waters are some of the finest in the area for engaging in snorkeling and swimming due to their Blue Flag safety rating. Visitors can spend the day in the beach, as well as wash off their feet and clean up at provided shower systems. Other on-site amenities include trash disposal stations, portable toilets and a lifeguard stand to overlook swimmers. Access is easy, as parking lots are available for anyone renting a car and driving to the beach. Many boat tours do run from the San Lucas marina, so if you are without a car you can always hop a ride for a day out sun-bathing. Feel free to explore Chileno Beach, but don’t be shy to visit other surrounding beaches to get a different feel such as at Santa Maria Beach only just over a mile away.

Just a stone’s throw away from the populated beaches of Cabo San Lucas, Santa Maria Beach lies along the Tourist Corridor in Los Cabos, inviting the visitor to come take a worthy dunk in its serene blue waters. A sheltered, natural cove, the sands of its swimmable beaches rest between two large granite rocks that block the hard influence of the pounding surf swell and constant winds, making it a prime-time destination for tourists looking to safely go swimming, snorkeling, and diving. The shallow waters are considered a protected marine sanctuary, which delights visitors peering under the waters’ surface at hundreds of eclectic species of tropical fish to please the eye. Morning hours are best suited for optimal visibility in the clear water. Playa Santa Maria lies by the Twin Dolphin hotel and can be accessed by car or visited via any of the running water boat tours coming from Cabo San Lucas Marina.
