Santa Maria Beach
Just a stone’s throw away from the populated beaches of Cabo San Lucas, Santa Maria Beach lies along the Tourist Corridor in Los Cabos, inviting the visitor to come take a worthy dunk in its serene blue waters. A sheltered, natural cove, the sands of its swimmable beaches rest between two large granite rocks that block the hard influence of the pounding surf swell and constant winds, making it a prime-time destination for tourists looking to safely go swimming, snorkeling, and diving. The shallow waters are considered a protected marine sanctuary, which delights visitors peering under the waters’ surface at hundreds of eclectic species of tropical fish to please the eye. Morning hours are best suited for optimal visibility in the clear water. Playa Santa Maria lies by the Twin Dolphin hotel and can be accessed by car or visited via any of the running water boat tours coming from Cabo San Lucas Marina. Another feature of the beach is that it lies in close proximity to Chileno Beach – another quiet, fabulous respite that you can easily hop over to for a change of scenery.
