“Stunning Santa Maria Beach Cabo”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

Santa Maria is a stunning, public beach in Cabo. It was not crowded, the water was calm and beautiful. Definitely recommend going here. There are not a lot of swimable beaches in Cabo but this is certainly one of the best!

“The best snorkeling”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

Santa Maria beach is beautiful and the snorkeling is excellent with many species visible around the rocks. The water is deeper than Chileno beach and it got a bit more crowded than Chileno when the snorkeling boats came in, but the variety of fish was better. There are vendors on this beach including one who will rent you snorkel equipment and beach umbrellas. The vendors weren't too pushy, but if you are not interested in buying jewelry or rugs then be ready to say "No gracias" fairly frequently. The setting here, though, is VERY beautiful so it's worth it. Like Chileno Beach, there is a parking lot if you have a car, but no palapas so renting an umbrella is the way to go.

“Snorkel beach”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

Umbrellas were available to rent from the vendors,. this was very helpful as we were renters.. Great snorkeling and saw several large fish. We had our own, but snorkel gear could also be rented on the beach by vendors.

“Perfect beach for relaxation!”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Our Cabo friends took us to Santa Maria beach for the day where we enjoyed snorkeling and watching the dogs play in the surf. The beach was very relaxing and had beautiful views. Some of the best snorkeling can be found at this beach! You do need a car to get to this location as it is off the beaten path and aways from downtown Cabo. A locals beach !
