The built-up areas of Cabo (cape) San Lucas stand out as bright, angular areas inland from the main bay on the tip of the Baja California peninsula. The town is nearly centered on the bay, which looks out onto the blue waters of the Gulf of California. Three dry river beds (white sands in this arid environment) descend from rugged, wooded hills to the coastline. River sands then accumulate to form the white beaches visible along the coastline adjacent to the city.

A master-planned village with a 400-slip marina: hotels, condominiums, gated communities and golf courses will snake along three miles of pristine coastline. by Carol Billups.
