Here’s a list of some of your options to visit when you decide to travel to East Cape in Cabo.

One of the first stops for you should be on the anonymous beach. Immerse yourself in sand dunes that provide shelter and commodity.  This is a wonderful beach where you can camp or picnic.  The steep dunes mentioned before descending to a drop-off at the shoreline. Truly an amazing view to stare at!

Playa Higuera or Fig Tree Beach

The highlight of this place is an inescapable feature.  A gnarled, old, twisted fig tree completely out of place! The great-looking beach is lashed with waves and is partially hidden among rock formations. This is a beach for the adventurous as the surf is rough.

Playa Los Frailes

About 40 miles from San José you’ll come to Los Frailes. This is a very popular beach, with limited facilities.  A truly nice and gentle bay, that attracts both campers and yachtsmen. This hideaway is one of the finest anchorages on the coast, you can swim straight to the beach!  Swimming, snorkeling, and fishing are excellent in this place.

Cabo Pulmo

About 5 miles north of Los Frailes is Cabo Pulmo, another of the more popular beaches on the East Cape of Los Cabos, it even has a restaurant and plenty of space in a cove for RV’s, vans and campers. Cabo Pulmo is the only living coral reef on the Pacific coast. Divers and snorkelers will love the finger coral reefs extending offshore with water from 15 to 80 feet deep. Windsurfers enjoy the winds that often blow from the side, parallel to the beach.

Established back in 1987, Cabo Pulmo has a population of only 114 people. And, the National Marine Park of Cabo Pulmo, which was established in 1995 to protect the oldest living Coral Reef in North America, is a great place to visit, just north of Cabo San Lucas. This magnificent place is quickly becoming the biggest nature conservation success story in all the American continent.
