Last Updated

Los Cabos is generally considered a beach vacation destination where American travelers relax in the sunshine and walk along the sandy shore.   

One Los Cabos beach, Costa Azul beach, is popular for another reason, though.   

Why this Los Cabos beach is trending among American travelers has nothing to do with relaxation and everything to do with getting your adrenaline pumping, and we’ll go over the reasons why that is.    

The Sandy Shores of Costa Azul Beach in Los Cabos, Mexico

Location Of Costa Azul Beach 

Costa Azul Beach is located in the town of San Jose del Cabo, just a little bit outside of town, at the beginning of the Tourist Corridor.   

It’s only a few minutes from town, so if you visit the beach, you can easily visit the town too.   

The mile-long beach sits on the Sea of Cortez.

Costa Azul – The Perfect Beach For Water Sports 

Costa Azul is known for being a surfing beach.  You can even get surf lessons nearby.  Other activities can be enjoyed too, though.   

Different areas of the beach are better for different activities, as the conditions of the water vary along the mile-long stretch of the beach.   

You can enjoy everything from surfing to snorkeling while visiting Costa Azul.

Water Sports That Can Be Enjoyed At Costa Azul 

All kinds of water sports can be enjoyed at Costa Azul Beach, but some seasons are better for certain activities than others.   

During the summer, the waves are typically stronger than during the wintertime, so it’s the best time for surfing, and surf competitions are often held during this time.   

During the winter, the water is calmer, so this is the perfect time for activities like snorkeling, paddleboarding, and kayaking.

Swimming At Costa Azul Beach 

Most of the time, it’s only advised that very strong swimmers attempt to swim at Costa Azul beach.   

As with many Los Cabos beaches, it’s not the most swimmable beach.   

During the winter when the waves are a bit calmer you might be able to swim, but should use extreme caution.   

The most important thing to look for is the beach warning flag.  If it’s red or black you should not attempt to swim in the water.

Tips For Visiting Costa Azul Beach 

Costa Azul beach has everything you need to spend a day enjoying the sun and the beautiful weather.   

There are a few restaurants nearby, facilities at the beach, and there’s a surf shop where you can rent boards.   

There’s also a place on the beach to grab snacks and beverages.   

You may want to bring your own chairs and umbrella if you’ll be spending the day at the beach, though, as rentals seem to be limited.

Amenities Near Costa Azul  

In addition to the amenities located right at the beach, Costa Azul is close enough to all that San Jose del Cabo has to offer to enjoy those amenities too.   

You can spend the day at the beach and the evening strolling through the streets of the town.   

Even if you choose to stay in Cabo San Lucas, you can easily plan a day trip to San Jose del Cabo and enjoy a completely different experience.

Exploring San Jose Del Cabo 

San Jose del Cabo is the quieter, more laid-back of the two “capes” that make up Los Cabos.   

It has a charming old town to explore and a thriving artist community, with several galleries in the town.   

Here you’ll find more traditional Mexican restaurants and cantinas, and more authenticity overall.   

Even if you’ll be spending most of your vacation in Cabo San Lucas, a day trip to San Jose del Cabo, and Costa Azul Beach, is a must during your Cabo vacation.
