1: Visit the Arch of Cabo San Lucas
Be sure to reserve a boat trip to the Arch of Cabo San Lucas before you travel to Cabo. Then, when you get there, you’ll discover a beautiful rock formation with an arch named the “Arch of Cabo San Lucas.” And, this famous rock formation is located on the southern tip of the Baja California Peninsula. Called “Land’s End,” this location is where the Pacific Ocean meets The Sea of Cortez.
When you arrive by boat, you’ll enjoy the many sea creatures, including friendly sea lions that spend time bathing in the sun. On your way there, your boat captain will inform you about everything you can expect to see. So, be sure to bring your camera.
Beaches at the Arch of Cabo San Lucas
There, you’ll discover two beaches: Playa de Amore – Lover’s Beach, and Playa Divorcio – Divorce Beach. As you can guess, Playa de Amore is generally calm. And, it’s a great place to swim and go snorkeling.
On the other side, you’ll find some dangers afoot, if you ever venture into the waters of Playa Divorcio.
Playa Divorcio is beautiful. And, it’s great for laying on beach. But, it’s a very dangerous place to swim. For example, there are strong currents, crashing waves, and rip tides that can quickly pull you out to sea. So, stay out of the water along this beach! And beware, there are no lifeguards at that beach.
