Let Cabo San Lucas Transportation Escort You to the Famous Palmilla Beach


April 27, 2016

Palmilla beach, in the Cabo San Lucas area, is one of the busiest and most popular beaches in that area. Cabo San Lucas Transportation can easily get you to this beautiful beach that is located just north of the One&Only Hotel Palmilla, off Highway #1 going from Cabo San Lucas toward San Jose del Cabo. They offer professional bilingual drivers, recent-model vehicles with complete insurance, unlimited mileage, no added fuel costs, bottled water, beer, and personalized attention. 

Palmilla beach has beautiful white sand and clear water and is ideal for a family trip to the beach. It is said to be the best swimming beach near San Jose del Cabo. An inviting crescent-shaped bay surrounded by luxurious oceanfront residential communities, and the Jack Nicklaus Ocean Nine golf course forms the Palmilla area. Inside the tranquil bay, the beach along this protected cove is perfect for lounging on the sand to improve your tan, snorkeling, swimming, watching the pelicans perform their aerobatics, or catching up on that long unread novel.

It boasts the longest swimming beach in the Corridor, with more than a mile of protected shore, palapas for shade, and good swimming and snorkeling. Palmilla is also an excellent place to launch your kayak, because there is parking very close to the beach. It has been a fish camp for centuries and is very popular with local families – especially on Sundays. For more seclusion, go northeast toward the Jack Nicklaus Ocean Nine golf course.

The natural beauty in this area makes it a favorite spot for photographers. At Palmilla you can also enjoy a number of sports, including scuba diving, surfing, snorkeling, paddle boarding, kayaking, golfing and fishing.

The Los Cabos natural reef located in this area is ranked among the finest of the world with visibility of up to 120 feet. Diving adventures include sightings of manta rays, sea lions, sea turtles, and hammerheads, as this area is rich with a wide and diverse array of sea life.

On the point is the exclusive One&Only Hotel Palmilla, with its striking beaches. Snorkeling, diving, paddle boarding, and sports equipment can be rented at the dive shop, located next to the hotel grounds.

In the history of Cabo San Lucas, it was the Palmilla hotel that made the whole place famous. It was the first resort in the area. Before its development, the area wasn't very populated or very interesting. In 1950 the local population was 548 inhabitants – mostly fishermen and the Compañía de Productos Marinos S.A. tuna cannery workers.

The push to develop the area was due mostly to efforts by a few businessmen, among these William "Bud" Parr, Abelardo Rodríguez, Luis Coppola Bonillas, and Luis Bulnes. From the late 1940's and into the early 1950's, they developed a handful of hotels and resorts, working separately or in partnerships. Among these projects was Hotel Las Cruces Palmilla, founded in 1956.

Palmilla beach is best visited by vehicle, as it is a long walk in from the highway.
