Los Cabos Neighborhoods
Cabo San Lucas
The Pedregal is the ‘Beverly Hills’ of private residential gated communities in Cabo San Lucas. Despite 40 years of steady growth, the Mediterranean-inspired community still manages to hold onto its Old World atmosphere while simultaneously embracing the new. Built into a magnificent granite hillside surrounded by exotic desert vegetation, the area's 360 acres feature sweeping panoramic views over either Cabo San Lucas Bay or the Pacific. With cobblestone streets, fine restaurants and numerous recreational options, the emphasis is on privacy and a casual, tropical lifestyle. Exquisite showpiece homes abound. Excellent swimming is available at Médano Beach, less than a mile away. The Pedregal is an oasis of exclusivity just steps to all the action of downtown and the marina.
Warmer than the Pacific side, the bay side of the Pedregal showcases the city lights at night and lovely sunrises. You can walk to Médano Beach and downtown Cabo San Lucas from the bay side.
The Pacific side of the Pedregal offers stunning ocean views, with whale watching right from the terrace of your luxurious private villa. The beautiful stretch of beach along the Pacific is perfect for sunbathing and beachcombing. Big Pacific waves make this beach unsuitable for swimming.
Located on the Pacific side past the Pedregal, Sunset Beach is home to the beautiful Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach Resort & Spa and the Pueblo Bonito Pacifica Holistic Retreat and Spa, an adults-only luxury resort. Relax on the broad expanse of beach offering a wonderful feeling of seclusion and privacy. Surrounded by granite mountainsides, the beach is known for its nesting sea turtles.
