Where to Eat
Playa Medano is the most popular beach during
the day time and is the closest beach to town. Playa Medano is also
a popular place to rent water equipment, catch a water taxi or
parasail for a panoramic view of the bay.
Playa Del Amor :
If you are looking for a slower pace than the
crowded Playa Medano, try taking a glass bottom boat out to Lover's
Beach. This is the stunning strand of beach located at the world
famous arches of Land's End.
This out of town beach is incredible. We
highly recommend it. If you are driving, exit the highway in the
gully immediately before the Hotel Cabo San Lucas. There is a dirt
parking lot with beach access. The water is a beautiful turquoise
green and the tropical sea life is intense.
