CATEGORY: Los Cabos Villas | 04.20.2021

Mexico is an enigma to say the least. The nation is comprised of 32 different states, and each region differs in terms of the landscape. In some areas, you’ll find a dry desert climate, while in other places you’ll stumble across lush rainforests that are teaming with life. We could dedicate an entire blog post celebrating Mexico’s diversity, but today we’re going to focus on the Pacific coast, which has long been a refuge to the wealthy and famous. If you’re thinking about booking your next adventure to either Los Cabos and Punta Mita, we’re going to break down the best places for swimming!

Punta Mita

Let’s begin this journey by exploring Punta Mita, a jewel located along the iconic Riviera Nayarit. This coastal city straddles the Banderas Bay, and the golden sandy beaches attract tourists from around the globe. Whether you’re looking to kick back and relax or try your hand at surfing, here are the top beaches in Punta Mita!

Bucerias Beach

If you’re traveling with your family, the Bucerias Beach should be the number one destination on your list. It’s extremely family-friendly, and it’s only 30 minutes from the town center. You’ll often find locals swimming and sunbathing here, and the calm waters make it the ideal place for light water sports. So grab your paddleboard or rent a kayak and get ready to explore the cerulean-colored water.

Hidden Beach

If you’re an adventure seeker looking for a mysterious beach near Punta Mita, we definitely recommend Hidden Beach. It’s only accessible during low tide by boat, but it’s definitely worth the trek. The waters are very calm throughout the year, and it’s a protected area. This means it’s the perfect place to snorkel and scuba dive to explore the marine biodiversity! There’s also a romantic aspect to Hidden beach, as many couples tend to take advantage of the alluring sunset to propose to their loved ones!

Los Cabo

Switching locations from the Riviera Nayarit, it’s time to discover the Los Cabos region, which comprises of Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo. Situated at the tip of the Baja California Peninsula, the waters of Los Cabos are warm throughout the year. Here are a few beaches that are perfect for swimming in the area!

Medano Beach

Most tourists head to Medano Beach  in Cabo to swim and enjoy the light turquoise waters! There are numerous restaurants and amenities that line the sandy coast, making it the perfect place to spend the day with the family. On the other hand, if you’re looking to indulge in a bit of fun in the sun, there are a handful of beach clubs offering endless margaritas and daiquiris.

Palmilla Beach

If you’re searching for a more secluded and upscale beach in the Los Cabos area, we highly recommend Elegant Mexico’s villas in the area and features the best views in the region! There are relatively no vendors on this crescent-shaped beach, and the water is calm, making it ideal for both snorkeling and scuba diving!

We also recommend  Club Ninety Six, which is situated at Palmilla Beach. This high-class establishment is a great place to unwind after a day of fun in the sun, as the menu consists of authentic Mexican cuisine paired with a vast range of wines. Opt to have a romantic meal with your loved one on their candlelit seaside terrace during the sunset hour – you won’t regret the views!
