Santa Maria Beach, Cabo San Lucas

4.5
#4 of 12 in Beaches in Cabo San Lucas
Snorkel on Santa Maria Beach a horseshoe-shaped stretch of sand nestled between cactus-covered cliffs. A protected area, the secluded beach is a haven for marine life, so bring snorkelling gear to explore the calm, clear waters filled with tropical fish. Lounge on the soft golden sand, sunbathe, or swim in the sea. The beach is relatively remote and offers little shade, so bring plenty of food and water, as well as a beach umbrella. Put Santa Maria Beach into our Cabo San Lucas trip planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Cabo San Lucas.
