Caution on Cabo Beaches

Date Published:

A yellow flag indicates potentially high surf or dangerous currents and undertows, and means that swimmers should exercise extreme caution.

Local lifeguards urge tourists to take care when bathing on Cabo’s beaches.


The warning comes after a week of rescues, strong groundswell and extremely high 4m waves. And with holiday season fast approaching the number of bathers are increasing daily.


Coordinator of the Federal Maritime Zone Zofemat in Cabo San Lucas, Jesús Manuel Olvera Marquez explains that strong groundswell is completely normal during hurricane season. But people tend to overlook this fact, take too many risks and forget that they could end up being drowned.


In the last week alone there have been several near drowning incidents. Fortunately Navy and Lifeguard rescues have all been successful so far. But he urges extreme caution and asks everyone to remember the very real dangers.


Local life guard at Palmilla beach, Joel Castro Villanueva, explains how the current can carry swimmers very swiftly out on to the rocks before they realise what is happening. Too many people are ignoring the warnings and are putting themselves at great risk.


"Please respect the indications of lifeguards, we are here to inform and care for people who come to the beaches, our job is also to ensure that everyone has a nice day ,without any accidents. Please avoid going into the sea when there are red or black flags.”
