Medano Beach

Medano Beach is the best beach in Cabo for swimming. Indeed, most hotels in Los Cabos with a swimmable beach are located on Medano Beach. This super popular slice of sand hugs the Sea of Cortez.

Lover’s Beach

This small crescent-shaped beach is located at Land’s End on the Sea of Cortez side of Cabo San Lucas. Lover’s Beach has much more of a secluded feel to it than Medano Beach.

Chileno Beach

People who don’t like the bustle of Medano Beach might classify Chileno Beach (Playa Chileno) as the actual best swimming beach in Cabo.

El Ganzo Beach

The small beach (El Ganzo Beach or Puerto Los Cabos Beach) is located at the southwest corner of the Puerto Los Cabos marina. It’s pristine and has a protected swimming area.
