Los Cabos boasts a bevy of beautiful beaches, many of which are home to strategically situated restaurants and cantinas. The menu focus at these beachfront eateries can vary significantly – from tacos and pub style favorites to fresh local seafood and fine dining fare – but most provide very good food in informal “bikini” friendly settings, and the best pair fine dining with romantic seaside atmosphere.
Playa El Médano, the largest and most popular beach in Cabo San Lucas, is home to several top restaurants featuring golden sands and picturesque Sea of Cortés and Land's End views. SUR by Bar Esquina is the latest offering, with seafood specialties that range from ceviches to sushi rolls, and a Champagne corner for upscale vacation celebrations. Neighbors Mango Deck and The Office on the Beach, meanwhile, are meccas for fish tacos and other tasty Mexican and American comfort food fare.
Zipper's on Costa Azul Beach in San José del Cabo remains the preferred stop for surfers and those who appreciate delicious baby back ribs, juicy burgers and ice cold bottles of Victoria, a wonderful Mexican beer that is not commonly carried by local establishments. The beachfront restaurant overlooks one of Baja Sur's best surf breaks – site of the annual, ASP-sanctioned Los Cabos Open of Surf – and is the perfect place to hang out on a sunny afternoon.
