AAA Editor Notes
El Arco (The Arch) is part of the Land's End formation stretching offshore near the point where the Gulf of California and the Pacific Ocean meet. The iconic image of Cabo San Lucas, El Arco is a natural granite arch that has been carved by wind and water.
While the arch is readily visible from shore, its size and beauty are best appreciated close up. Water taxis, available at the marina, take passengers past the arch and will drop guests off on request at nearby Lover's Beach (Playa del Amor), which faces the swimmable Gulf of California. The opposite side of the beach fronting the rough waters of the Pacific is not safe for swimming.
Note: If you opt to linger at Lover's Beach, remember to set a time for the water taxi to pick you up for the trip back to Cabo San Lucas.
