Don't miss the chance to visit the Cannery Beaches during your vacation in Cabo San Lucas

Cabo San Lucas has some of the most beautiful beaches of Baja California Sur, some of which have become icons of Mexico like Lover’s beach and Medano beach, but you can’t leave Los Cabos without visiting the Cannery Beaches, one of the greatest places to enjoy the sun and swim in their clean water.

The Cannery beaches are 3 beaches located near the Cabo San Lucas Marina entrance:

  • Playa Balcón / Balconcito Beach
  • Playa Coral Negro. This beach is also known as Cannery Beach, Locals Beach, or Playa Empacadora
  • Playa Escondida / Hidden Beach

The most popular one is Playa Coral Negro, aka Cannery beach. This name has great historical importance because it was given by the locals after an old tuna cannery that was located in the area many years ago and used to be the leading commercial activity of Cabo.

Experience Cannery beach (Playa coral negro), hidden beach and el balcón beach in a private catamaran

The three cannery beaches are Playa Coral Negro, El balcón, and Hidden beach. “El balcón” is also known as balconcito beach. The cannery beaches are the best beaches in Cabo for swimming because of their location on the Sea of Cortez side of the peninsula.

Playa Coral Negro and el balcón beach are the most popular of the cannery beaches and a must-visit during your stay in Cabo San Lucas. With a sandy shore and calm water, these are great beaches if you want to swim or practice snorkeling and paddleboard. Visitors also enjoy sunbathing and playing games on the sand.

Balconcito beach is accessible only by boat, so it is considered a semi-private beach, it is a great point to enjoy the beauty of the Sea of Cortez and swim among colorful fish. Same with Hidden Beach.

Our private sailing tours are the best way to visit the cannery beaches and all the amazing landmarks of Los Cabos without the crowds and on a fully adaptable experience.

If you are in Cabo with a large group, this is a must-do experience. We had 17 people and the boat was perfect.

It was also cheaper than all of the other private and shared public boats (which are super crowded).

It came with two staff members who were incredibly responsive, friendly and easy going and our caption, Mario, was the most fun person of our entire trip. The boat has a cooler for your drinks, bluetooth and great speakers for your music and the guacamole they make is incredible. We got to stop and swim, see the arch, and even see some whales during sunset.

Highly recommend.

Had an amazing time on Pelican Cabo Los Cobos Boat! The staff was amazing. Great drinks poured amazing food all throughout our ride. We even got to see whales swimming right next to our boat, it was unbelievable!

This was definitely my favorite part of our trip and I would definitely recommend Pelican Cabo to everyone who visits!

Thank you for an unforgettable experience!


Booked this boat for my bachelorette party Leo and Alan were so much fun!

Leo took the most amazing pictures of me and my group! The boat was so nice, fun, and relaxing!

It was also super easy to find! Definitely recommend booking with them!



We only had about 6 hours to spend in Cabo while our cruise was in port. We wanted to see the arches, we wanted to snorkel, we wanted to cliff jump, we wanted to paddleboard and we wanted to lounge while eating/drinking. This checked off EVERY box!

The morning started by driving out to take pictures at the arches. We plugged in our music and enjoyed the beautiful views as we got out to the end of the cliffs. After taking some great pictures, we headed over to anchor up to swim and snorkel.

We spent the next 2.5 hours swimming with brightly colored fish and sea lions, diving/flipping off the upper deck platform, paddle boarding along the beach, dancing and eating the delicious chips and salsa. Seriously everything we wanted out of the day. It blew away our expectations.

Everything was ready before we arrived at the dock and the crew were very professional. Right from the start we knew we were in good hands.

Ceci was a fabulous host. She explained everything and made sure we had everything we wanted. She was fun, friendly and really made us feel at home while on board.

Jonathan definitely knew his stuff as captain. It was obvious he was going to keep us safe and also put us right on the best swimming/snorkeling. He’s a little reserved but we got him to joke around a little about bellyflopping off the high dive!

Kiara took AMAZING pictures! Seriously, she was never in the way at all but seemed to be everywhere at once documenting our adventure. At the end of the tour we had the option to buy all the pictures she took with her camera (expensive but the pictures were fantastic!) but she was also nice enough to take pictures with our phones as well.

Can’t recommend this tour enough! It was an absolute steal for the price.

Next time we are in Cabo we will book again without a doubt. Thank you La Isla Tours!

I was so grateful that my friend and I decided last minute to do this dinner because it was such an incredible experience.

The service from start to finish was outstanding and the food was beyond delicious. They even accommodated a couple dietary restrictions that I had. Very impressed with what they are creating in that kitchen. And on a moving boat!

My friend and I decided against the wine pairing (personal choice) and enjoyed their beautiful cocktails instead. We lucked out and had a fairly calm evening at sea and even saw a few whales…I would recommend anyone to do this. Now I just have to go back to try the brunch!

Thank you to the entire Animalón crew for being the highlight of our trip.
