Very quiet - just a few locals here enjoying the afternoon. It's a great spot, but was completely shaded by about 4 pm, so if you're planning to go, try to get there earlier in the day so you have time to enjoy it. We got there late afternoon and it got chilly once the sun was gone!

I have been coming to Cabo for 17 years and had no clue this place was here. I was on a morning walk one day and walked past the navy station just to see what was down that road. Well, I found this lovely stretch of beach. It was crowded so obviously many knew it was here. I found the... More

This is a tranquil location near the marina entrance. Follow Boulevard Marina past Sandos Finisterra and park in one of the parking areas before you get to the Naval Base. At low tide it is possible to walk around some of the rock formations to more secluded areas of the beach. At high tide you can follow paths and climb... More

This is supposed to be a locals beach and heavily crowded on Sundays, but we were there on a weekday and had a great time. It is a relatively small beach but with gorgeous views and friendly waters. This is a good beach for swimming and kids can have a great time here as compared to the rough beaches on... More

This is a sleeper. A little hard to find. Park near the Dolphins and walk in behind the Marine Base. Best early in the AM before the water taxis get busy. Really great Snorkel and diving. When the experts want a quickie this is where the go. Plan to arrive a 7:00 Am and be out by 10:00 AM.

We were staying over on Solmar beach, just a short distance from Cannery Beach (about a 5-10 minute walk). I really wanted a chance to swim in the ocean so we ventured down the road past the naval base one morning. When we got there we found only 2-3 Mexican families enjoying the beach. We easily found an unoccupied palapa... More

To get here, go all the way counterclockwise around the marina, then go past the entrance to the Finisterra, past the navy, and you will find the old abandoned cannery. Keep going around it and you will find a pretty empty beach used mostly by locals.

Travel along the marina around the naval base. You will find this free beach where all the locals go with their families. My family of six loved it. There was NO selling of trinkets, etc... My only complaint was the amount of trash noted in areas.... :-(

The Cannery beaches are a series of coves - rocky and surf-washed, filled with locals and families. Great for beach walking at low tide. Check the web for tide charts and plan your hike - it's amazing that you can walk from the Naval station by Gali plaza (Solmar end of marina) all the way to Lover's Beach. now the... More

You hear Cabo and you think "Spring Break, 1998...ouch." Well, take a different approach. Try getting away from the spring breakers and find something local. Playa Publico is the best spot. This is the beach that the locals go to. Please visit, but visit with care and in small groups. I love this beach because we can go, sit under... More
