None of the wreck remains. Families will enjoy exploring the tidal pools, and swimming is possible, too, but not recommended for small children. Access: A long drive in from the highway, enter the beach on the southwest side of the Sheraton Hacienda del Mar Resort and Spa in Cabo del Sol at Kilometer 10.
