Trip Planner: Mexico / Baja California / Baja California Sur / Los Cabos / Cabo San Lucas / El Arco de Cabo San Lucas
Watch as the waves crash against El Arco de Cabo San Lucas, an arched rock formation at the southern tip of Mexico's Baja California Peninsula. Created by erosion over millennia, the distinctive rock formation serves as a meeting point for local sea lion colonies; keep your eyes peeled for the large creatures as you admire the rocks. Don't be tempted to go in the water--strong currents and rocky surroundings make the area unsuitable for swimming. You can access the beach near the rock formation by water taxi from the nearby city.

El Arco de Cabo San Lucas reviews

The view is amazing ! clear water ,and saw a lot kind of fish !! Unfortunately we took a tour boat that last an hour or less ,so we didn't enjoy enough time ..really recommend to go and take a tour..... more »
It doesn't matter if you out in a glass bottom boat or a weird pink dinghy, there's nothing more breath-taking in my lifetime in nature as to see El Arco de Cabo San Lucas. I felt the biggest smile... more »
We stopped at Lover’s Beach near El Arco for a pre-wedding day photo shoot. In love with this beach and the sunrise here. Can’t wait to visit again soon. FYI Tide is strong, not for swimming, and can only get to during low tide times of the day. Be sure to away from the Divorce side too! 🙃❤️🌊
I got some great pics from the balcony of my cruise ship. Beautiful sight but not worth paying more than $15 to get up close unless you want other people or boats in your pictures. I can say that I have been but definitely do not see the need to ever return.
It was one of the best experiences I've ever had. Never imagined I'll be visiting this amazing place one day. Can't wait go back! 👏🏻
Visited El Arco aboard Tropical catamaran as part of charter booked aboard Vision of the Seas. Had a blast as we were only a party of 12. Excellent service, fun crew open bar and perfect weather! What's not to luv?
It's The Arch! You cannot visit Cabo without seeing The Arch! Basically ever tour or water activity goes by it (whale watching, snorkeling, cruises, dinner boats, water taxis, etc). You can only walk under it at low tide during certain years when the sea level is low enough. Lovers and Divorce beach are next door. A resident colony of sea lions lives adjacent.
