5 Best Day Excursions & Activities from Los Cabos BeachesFrom the beautiful golden sands of the Pacific Ocean in Cabo San Lucas to the Playa Hotelella and La Playita in San Jose del Cabo, Los Cabos has dozens of stunning beaches. Some are best known for their beauty, while others are known for safe swimming, surfing, and snorkelling. The average annual sunshine in the area is about 350 days, so everyone enjoys plenty of sunlight.
Cabo San Lucas' Playa El Medano is ground zero during spring break, but this two-mile bar, restaurant, and sunbed with umbrellas is crowded all year round. Playa del Amor, or Lovers Beach, is probably the most photographed beach in Cabos Excursions & Activities due to its excellent location of Land's End granite cliffs. Lovers Beach is only accessible by water, so if you want to explore this pristine paradise, you'll need to take a water taxi or arrange a rental kayak or other water transportation.
1. Todos SantosOne of the most popular day trips from Cabo San Lucas is to visit Todos Santos. It's an easy one-hour drive up Highway 19, so you'll have plenty of time in the day to enjoy some of the charming things to do in Todos Santos.
Today, Todos Santos is a "Pueblo Magico" or "magical town" – an official designation given to chosen towns in Mexico for their beauty, cultural riches, or history.
Travellers come to stroll along the quaint cobbled streets (lined with interesting craft shops), surfing (the area is known for its great surfing), and dining (the mecca of foodies). And if you decide to love Todos Santos so much, stay at one of its stylish boutique hotels.
2. Los CerritosLos Cerritos is a very popular surf spot. If you like surfing, you'll want to stay in Los Cerritos for a day.
