One of the main selling points of Los Cabos has always been the tremendous coastal views of the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific Ocean. The major resorts are all located along the coastal corridor, with the best rooms, suites, and villas generally corresponding to the quality of the views. And whether it is cliff-side dining high above the Pacific, or a sailing trip along the rocky outcroppings of Land’s End and El Arco, the same can be said of many local restaurants and activities: the better the views, the more memorable the experience.

Several local restaurants supplement their delicious menu offerings with otherworldly views. Ridge Bistro, located at the Ridge Luxury Villas of Playa Grande, offers spectacular wraparound views of the Malecon, Bahia San Lucas, Land’s End, Medano Beach, all of the city of Cabo San Lucas, and the Sierra de la Laguna mountains in the distance. Baja Brewing Company, situated high above Medano Beach at Cabo Villas, features superb beach and seaside views along with their wood-fired pizzas and microbrews. For French cuisine and panoramic views of San Jose del Cabo, join Chef Gabriel Cambon at The Hill Top Restaurant. Or stop along the tourist corridor and enjoy an Italian-centric dinner at Sunset Da Mona Lisa. The views of Land’s End and El Arco are remarkable, and this is truly one of the most romantic restaurants anywhere in the world.

For a unique and revelatory perspective, take a spin high above Los Cabos on one of the powered hang glider tours given by Cabo Sky Tours. Experience incredible and breathtaking views of Bahia San Lucas, Medano Beach, and Land’s End from vantages over a thousand feet in the air. Pilot Ernesto Magana has nearly 30 years of flying experience, and gives tours lasting in duration from 10 minutes to an hour. But of course, as amazing as these aerial tours can be, the best view in Baja is still from the summit of Mount Picacho del Diablo, which at 10,154 feet is easily the highest peak on the peninsula.
