Beautiful, warem water. On the day we went, it was a little choppy towards the beach but once you got out into the water, it was calm. Be sure to bring your water shoes!

This is one of our favorite beaches in Cabo. The snorkeling here is awesome, and we noticed on this trip that the parking lot is new and larger than before. Also, the bathrooms are new and up to date.

Santa Maria is a hidden gem, approximately 17 minutes away from San Lucas. With white sand and serene water, it is ideal for family and children. Not crowded, has palapas and hotel style showers and bathrooms.

Walking to this beach is too far from most hotels - take a taxi or Urber - or if you wish the city bus. Free parking if you drive - families welcome
