Don’t get us wrong, we have an undying love for Medano Beach. Nevertheless, there is something to be said about the stunning Santa Maria Beach, just a few minutes down the road. Just 7 miles away from Villa La Estancia is a stunning stretch of sand with bright blue waters and a calm current. Santa Maria has experienced somewhat of a transformation over the past year. Not only is it now a Blue Flag Certified Beach, but it has shade palapas for all of us who need a little break from the Baja sun.
We also love that Santa Maria is typically uncrowded and perfect for younger children. The small waves (the beach is protected on each side with rock formations) make visibility ideal for snorkeling. You’ll often see Cabo snorkeling tours making a stop at Santa Maria. During our last visit, there was only a handful of us enjoying the incredible scenery.
Take a quick taxi or drive yourself to Santa Maria Beach and make amazing vacation memories.
