For those that walked barefoot - did you find the sand pretty rough?

    So I have been looking at reviews in and around the Melia Cabo Real and some people have said that the sand in Cabo is almost like 'crystallized gravel'.

    I was hoping to go barefoot for the ceremony, but if the sands are really rough I may have to think otherwise.

    For those of you who have gotten married on the beach in Cabo, how did you find the sand on your feet?

    sandals or no sandals is the question :)

    Thanks in advance!

      Word of caution... The sand down south can get extremely hot to the feet

        Yeah I decided not to risk going barefoot and found sandals on Ebay :)

          We were in Cabo in September and walked the beach into town from our villa. While the sand is rough, it's bearable. We had about a 1 to 1 1/2 mile walk and it was more of a pain to try to walk with sandals on than it was to walk barefoot.

            I got married at the Sante Fe and went barefoot. But I have stayed at the Melia Real. And can tell you the sand is rougher there. My hubby and I went for a walk down the beach and he had to carry me back. With that said I dont think the cermonys are that far away from the walk way at least the one I saw. You should be fine. I brought sandles just incase the sand was to hot, but didnt need them.

            the sand was super hot, and could be rough in parts but I didn't find it to be a big deal. Some areas are worst than others. I found around Dreams it was ok, but as we walked near the Hilton it got pretty bad.

              You likely won't be walking far if you're just walking to the ceremony location, so I wouldn't worry about it too much. I got married at Dreams and I wore flip flops for the ceremony so I can't say for sure what it feels like to be barefoot...but for our TTD the next day I walked on the sand in my bare feet and didn't notice anything really bad. The temperature is something to think about though if you are getting married mid-day - it will be HOT!

              I don't think the sand is that rough, the only problem is during the summer gets super hot.
              Congratulations and good luck with sandals or with out!!
              Happy planning!!

                I just returned from a site visit to Cabo last week -- planning my July wedding.

                We stayed at the Hilton - The Hilton's beach connects with the Melia Cabo Real beach. We noted a significant change in sand texture when walking from the Hilton beach across the Melia Cabo beach. The Melia Cabo was very rocky... I was barefoot and had a difficult time. Near the water, the sand is more smooth. But as you can see from pictures, the sandy part of the two beaches are fairly large areas. The Hilton's sand was much finer and i didn't have a difficult time on that sand. Hope this information helps!

                  We went barefoot and were fine. The sand is a little rougher, but wasn't bad. I found it harder to walk in sandals than just barefoot. When your there you can experiment with what make you most comfortable.
