Some are, some are not. You may have been warned by a friend to never swim when you are in Cabo, however, this is not entirely true. Yes, some of the beaches in Cabo carry high recommendations that you do not swim due to the steep drop offs, unpredictable wave breaks, and strong undertows. Please keep yourself aware of your surroundings and obey all signs and official notices. The beaches that we recommend as swimmable for most of the year are Medano, Chileno, Santa Maria, Palmilla, Costa Azul, and Lovers Beach. Here is a link to our blog on some of the beaches in Cabo.
