I'm going on Sapphire in oct. My wife wants to lay out on the beach and play. Is better to book a beach excursion with princess or are there beach resorts near the docking area that we could use? What about renting stuff like jet skis? we're going to catalina is land, cabo, PV, and mazatlan
Best beach for a half-day visit: Playa Medano, fronting the Bahia de Cabo and the Sea of Cortez is an easy taxi ride from the marina.
Best beach for active types: Same: all sorts of watersports rentals are on hand at Playa Medano.
Quiet Beaches: (Car renters only) Head out to the "corridor" between Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo, which rings the Sea of Cortez, and pick one! Closer in: Playa del Amor, otherwise known as "Lover's Beach," is snuggled between rock formations near El Arco and fronts both the bay and the Sea of Cortez; you need to hire a water taxi to drop you off and pick you up (they're easily available in the marina) and there are no facilities so bring a picnic.
