El Arco de Cabo San Lucas (Lands End), Cabo San Lucas

4.7
#1 of 293 in Nature in Mexico
Watch as the waves crash against El Arco de Cabo San Lucas (Lands End), 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.

  • Really cute. You must take a boat that takes you to the arch. It is composed by several large stones and beautiful forms. Along the way you meet fish colors and sea lions that are waiting for you with a concert of noises. It is very nice to see and hear all that. The bow is beautiful, really worth visiting it closely. See it from far away is not the same.

  • Famous for its unique features, you must not go to Cabos without taking the photo of the arch. In the visit to the whales pass X there... Orphan experience

  • Head over to the Arch no matter what. Go by glass bottom boat or sailboat paddleboard however...but definitely go.  more »

Where to stay in Cabo San Lucas

Accommodations in Cabo San fall into two categories--those with easy beach access and those with a view. If you're mostly interested in swimming or diving, head to the neighborhood of El Medano Ejidal, where you can choose from a smorgasbord of luxury beach resorts and mid-range hotels. To take advantage of the area's dramatic scenery, look south to the cliff-top neighborhood of Pedregal, home to countless private rentals. For something more budget-friendly, check the streets in the city center, where the lack of sea views will be compensated with easy access to the city's best nightlife.
