Beaches are somewhat crowded here in Cabo, but Viudas is rather quiet. Maybe that is why the nickname is Widow's Beach. Lots of sand between rock formations you can call your own. Good beach for swimming. Porta-potties available for bathroom. Easy to get to, plenty...More

This is a small beach compared to the surrounding beaches that hug the myriad resorts along the coast. Quiet. Great for snorkelling, kayaking, SUP, swimming or simply sunning. Best of all, no vendors!, Pack a lunch and drinks.

This is a small beach easily accessible from cabo san lucas if you have a car. Not crowded so it is really good for a quiet sun bath and the waves are not too strong so it is possible to swim and snorkel.

I got married on this beach and it was very beautiful. The waves are strong there but the locals say that there are a couple swim spots, you just need to be careful.

Because of the entrance, you go literally in between the mountains. We only went there at night, so the waves were rougher, and I can't tell what's it like in the day, but maybe it's like El Tule beach. Very safe and free.

Cool little beach that is going to become impossible to visit in the future due to the construction all around it. Not for swimming (still worthwhile!). The road is difficult but can be done with most cars IF you go slow and carefully.

This is a public/virgin beach so don't expect ANY service, no rentals no food/beverages sellers. If you want to spend a quite time bring your own umbrella, towels, refreshments and chill. Sand is not fine so make sure you have shoes to walk on the...More
