If you are looking for that perfect spot to have lunch or dinner on the beach, Las Palmas will fill the bill. Las Palmas is one of the finer choices for dining on Playa Médano in Cabo San Lucas. You may either choose to sit on the expansive deck or grab a table on the sand and watch all the people enjoying one of the most happening beaches in Los Cabos. Las Palmas also features Sushi Sato, fully stocked with your fav-orite selections of sushi or sashimi, and if it were any fresher, it would still be swimming. The sea-food dishes are unbelievable and masterfully prepared by Chef Miguel Castro. The wide range of seafood, all prepared in a variety of ways, make Las Palmas a place to visit again and again. Desserts are exceptional here and the Flan is highly recommended. After a moonlight dinner, a romantic walk on the beach will be remembered and treasured. Open daily from 11:00 am to 10:00 pm; Sushi Sato from 1:00 pm to 10:00 pm. Located on Playa El Médano, next to the Hotel Meliá San Lucas.  Text from Los Cabos Magazine, Issue #9 – 2004

Cabo San Lucas Harbor 1968

Trollop anchored in Cabo San Lucas bay 1968

This is a picture of the “Trollop” that we sailed into the Cape in 1968. The bay was alive with fish because the cannery was pumping all the fish parts into the bay they did not use. There were only two lights on shore at three in the morning when we arrived. The Hacienda and one in the village. See the smoke coming up from the cannery? Unbelievable what happened.
