The Golden Arch of Cabo:

Land's End

Cabo San Lucas is the southernmost part of Baja California, and Land's End is the most remote part of Cabo. Land's End includes the most recognizable geologic feature of the area: El Arco, or the Arch. It's one of Cabo's most popular tourist destinations, and an essential photo-op for any Cabo vacationer. Land's End is easily accessible via one of many boat taxis departing from the Cabo San Lucas Marina, and along the way you may even spot sea lions basking in the Cabo sun. While the Pacific side of Land's End has rough currents, the Cortés Sea side, known as Playa del Amour, is perfect for sunbathing, swimming or snorkeling.



Fares for boat taxi transportation vary.

Can I go swimming at Land's End?

Yes, with one very important caveat. The Pacific side of Land's End, known as Playa Divorcio, or Divorce Beach, can have rough currents, and is not recommended for swimming. Instead, stick to the Sea of Cortés side of Land's End, known as Playa del Amour, or Lovers' Beach. This side of the beach is perfect for swimming, snorkeling, sunbathing and picnicking. 

How do I get to Land's End?

Land's End cannot be accessed by foot. Instead, head to the Cabo San Lucas Marina and hail one of the water taxis. For your convenience, you can make arrangements for a pickup when departing for Land's End. Be sure to keep an eye open for sea lions along the Los Frailes rock formation, or to maximize your enjoyment of the sea around you, choose a glass-bottomed boat for your transport to Land's End.
