Baja California Sur is a great place to sip margaritas while watching the sunset. With pristine white sands and crystal-clear waters in different shades of blue, it is the epitome of beach bliss. The care-free nature of Baja has made it the perfect place for beach bars, and there are plenty, each with their own special features. With fresh seafood, umbrella garnished piña coladas, live music, and entertainment, Baja has a wide arrange of beach bars for every taste. Here are a few of our favorites:
SUR Beach House – Cabo San Lucas
Opened in 2016, SUR Beach House is an offshoot of Bar Esquina, a popular eatery and bar near Bahia Hotel & Beach Club. It’s located on El Medano and is one of the hippest drinking and dining spots to visit. Being effortlessly chic, enjoy this destination’s creative cocktails and superb seafood-focused fare. Additionally, it’s a mecca for morning yoga, brunch, and convivial sunset celebrations. Enjoy breakfast, lunch, or dinner on their comfortable beach chairs. You can’t go wrong with anything you order here, whether it be eggs for breakfast or a refreshing cocktail while watching the sunset!
Blue Marlin Ibiza – Cabo San Lucas
Blue Marlin Ibiza is the unofficial headquarters of the poolside party scene in Cabo, previously it was the renowned Nikki Beach Club, however, in 2014 hurricane Odile destroyed the popular party spot. Two years later, in 2016, they opened their doors again but now as Blue Marlin Ibiza, the new hip party scene. They offer great poolside ambiance and oh so many drinks. You can choose to chill beachside, or in one of their poolside lounges and daybeds. If you’re into house style music and champagne, this is your go-to place!
Mango Deck – Cabo San Lucas
It is spring break year round at Mango Deck, famous for its great food and cold drinks. Located on El Medano beach in Cabo San Lucas, it is the ultimate party scene. Expect fun entertaining adult-oriented games, like banana eating, bikini, and push-up contests. And beware of Big Johnson, a guy dressed up like Pancho Villa with bandoliers packed with shots, who will surely get you a little tipsy. If you’re looking for yummy burgers, a place to tan, a bucket of ice-cold Coronas, and even renting a jet ski, Mango Deck is the place!
Zipper’s – San Jose del Cabo
This longtime favorite for visitors and locals alike is located on Playa Costa Azul, famous for hosting Los Cabos Open of Surf. It offers a laidback vibe, and you can enjoy dining while watching surfers ride the Pacific, or sporting events on their TVs. Their specialty is the Angus beef cheeseburger, but you can also enjoy BBQ ribs, shrimp, an ice-cold Corona or chilled wine. The view here is phenomenal, make sure to spend one of your evenings at Zipper’s to view the astounding sunset with a margarita in one hand!
So there you have it, your guide to refreshing cocktails, great food, magnificent views and some other fun activities! Baja has the best beach bars for any type of visitor, from let-loose partying, to elegant chic poolside drinks. Make sure to head to these top spots to grab a cold one with your toes in the sand!
The Green Room
The Green Room is located just north of the La Pastora surf break in Todos Santos, onsite at Villa Santa Cruz, Boutique Beach Resort. The journey out to the beach is a bit adventurous and part of the fun! Simply follow the pavement out of town, continue on the dirt road, cross the cattle guard and, when you see the green light at the front entry, turn left through our gate. Sit beachfront with your toes in the sand and soak up the sunset while enjoying cold margaritas and fresh seafood prepared to perfection. You’re likely to catch migrating whales, a flock of pelicans, or a single soaring osprey as you take in the beauty of the Pacific. The Green Room is an authentic Mexican dining experience right on the beach – Baja at its best.
El Faro Beach Club – Todos Santos
If you’re looking for less banana-eating contests, and more unwinding in luxury, El Faro Beach Club is the place for you. Located on the outskirts of Todos Santos, El Faro Beach Club is a part of Guaycura Boutique Hotel, but no worries, you don’t have to be a guest to enjoy their delicious menu and cocktails. The restaurant offers a healthy and sustainable menu to devour after enjoying the waves. It includes ceviches, tacos, empanadas, sashimis. And let’s not forget the important part, the drinks, it offers unique cocktails made with fresh ingredients from their own farm, and a variety of locally produced wines. Chill in their infinity pool with a glass of Rosé, and forget the world just for the day!
