Cabo resorts with swimmable beach

Recommended Posts

Hi ladies,

 

I've heard that the beach at Dreams is unswimmable, and that the one at the Hilton allows swimming.

 

Can anyone refer me to beaches close to Dreams that are swimmable?

 

Many thanks!

All hotels on Medano Beach in Cabo San Lucas are swimmable (but the beaches are also quite crowded for this reason as well!)

 

I think RIU Palace is on Medano right?

Hi Ladies.

 

The best swimmable beaches in Cabo are:

 

Lover's beach (also on the pacific side but ONLY if you're a really really godd swimmer

Hacienda Beach (watch for the stignrays though, stay away from the rocks and you're safe)

Medano Beach (from Baja Cantina to Mango Deck. That's Medano Beach)

From Medano beach all the way up to Club Cascadas

From Villa del Arco or Palmar to RIU it's OK, but not entirely safe, due to strong currents and Undertow.

 

On the corridor there are only a few spots...

Cabo Del Sol (Fiesta Americana and others) not entirely safe, due to rocks, hard currents and unertows.

Twind Dolphin Hotel (only the beach in front of it, the one next to ir has too much rocks)

Santa Maria and Chileno are completely safe (as long as there isn't any storms)

Maybe el Tule, but is more for surf than swimming

Dreams and Marquis... STAY AWAY. Strong Currents, strong undertows, big waves. Not even locals swim there.

Hilton, Melia Cabo Real, swimmable thanks to the wall they built.

Westin it's kind of safe but still, beware.

Palmilla has a nice beach too, swimmable of course

San Jose (Costa azul, Zippers, and all are mostly surfing spots)

Presidente Intecontinental. Stay Away, there are currents and undertows, way too strong, the create "holes", spots where currents going in different directions crash into each other, creating even stronger currents. Big Waves also.

 

DO NOT SWIM TO THE ARCH, IT'S NOT WORTH DYING FOR.

 

Just in case anyone wonders how I know this.... Iwas born here, 28 years ago, my family's been around this town for centuries now, so, Iguess I know something about swimmable beaches around my hometown.

Hello,

Well, my favorite beach to swim is a "no-name" beach, and it's just about a 5 minute drive from the Riu Hotel area. It's called Misiones. It's behind Cabo Bello and it is usually with few people and a friendly-family atmosphere.

Just got back from a site visit of Sheraton, Casa del Mar, and Dreams. The beaches at Sheraton and Dreams are both not swimmable. Not sure about Casa del Mar. There is a beach about 10 minutes away from these resorts that is supposed to be swimmable though.

HI again, that "no-name" beach, we locals know it as "Las Primeras Piedras" something like "The First Rocks"; since that is the beginning of the bay. Now it's known as "Misiones" or "Monumentos" (monuments). Some Surfer came by years ago, and said that the rocks were like monuments, and someone started calling it like that. It's swimmable and a bit private, just beware of rocks and swells and you're good to go.

Cheers

Yip, those beaches are open-sea shores, though there are some small streches of "swimmable strips", but ya, they could pose a few unnecesary risks. And you'd be better off just getting your feet wet and enjoy the splash. Medano is your best bet, though it is sometimes very crowded and jet skis around. I personally don't like that beach, but if you go further down, close to RIU, the place is quite swimmable when the waves aren't high. Have fun!cheer2.gif

Hi everyone! I am trying to find a beautiful resort in cabo where we can swim in the ocean. My heart was set on Dreams but since we can swim there some of my guests seems to be desapointed about my choice of resort...

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
