Love Beach has desert dunes in the background that makes for a picture-perfect setting.  The sparkling sea views will take your breath away, but no swimming is allowed at the beach due to strong currents. Instead, Love Beach is a great spot to enjoy a picnic or soak up the sun.   

#3 Divorce Beach

Divorce Beach is situated next to Love Beach. This is another beach that doesn’t allow swimming as it has a beautiful yet rocky shoreline with strong tides. Divorce Beach is less crowded so if you want to get away from it all, it is a great spot. Make sure to bring an umbrella, snacks and drinks with you as there are no restaurants in the area.  

#4 Chileno Beach

Chileno Beach is the 4th Cabo beach to visit. Known as the most popular public beach in the area, Chileno Beach has public bathrooms and showers for beach goers. Also, lifeguards work in the area to help keep swimmers safe.  Chileno Beach has plenty of parking although it can become quite crowded during weekends and holidays.  If you like snorkeling, you will love that you can walk into the ocean and snorkel around vibrant coral reefs. Lastly, if you love people watching, Chileno Beach is a great choice since it is quite popular. 

#5 Santa Maria Beach

Our 4th choice for the top 5 Cabo beaches is Santa Maria Beach. Santa Maria Beach has crystal clear water and beautiful white sandy shores.
