Bolstered by protected cove shelters, Palmilla Beach in Los Cabos attracts sunbathers and daytrippers to come stroll upon the white sand and hop into the waters to go swimming safely at its Blue Flag swimmable beaches. Playa Palmilla hosts many events throughout the year: Notably, it is both the start and the finish of the swim portion of the annual Ironman Triathlon event, where hardcore participants test their mettle in competing against some of the most capable athletes in the world. Daytime happenings involve watching local fishermen launching their boats for a daily catch of snapper and grouper, from which many times you can purchase the catch of the day directly from them to cook up at your resort or even at a local restaurant. It’s easy to find a place to stay, as the famous One&Only Palmilla doles out more luxury than you can handle. If snorkeling gets your blood flowing, a wide expanse of marine life exists just below the water’s surface at the beach. Note that there are limited facilities along the beachfront, so be sure to pack your necessities. If you’re looking for a bit of seclusion and solitude, these are the sands you want to plant your body upon.
