El Arco at Cabo’s Land End
November 24, 2016
El Arco at Cabo’s Land End is one of the most popular destinations in Cabo San Lucas. Cabo San Lucas is home to many exciting sights and activities, which makes it an ideal location for vacations full of memories. One of the most iconic activities is to visit Cabo’s Land End or enjoy the rock arches from afar.
Dramatic Meeting Spot
El Arco is located at Baja California peninsula’s southern tip. This is a dramatic meeting spot where the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific Ocean come together. This striking beauty is one of the most dramatic landmarks in Cabo San Lucas.
The Name El Arco
The name El Arco comes from a Spanish name that means ‘The Arch’, and this refers to the arching rock formations. In English, the name of this area is called Land’s End being that sailors in times of old assumed it was the last point until you reach the south pole. Luckily for vacationers looking to lounge on a beach all day, the South Pole is a whole continent away, with the only icey conditions you will meet are those served as a frozen margarita.
Tours to El Arco
Getting to El Arco is simple. Take a boat ride, which can be arranged at the marina in Cabo San Lucas or from el Medano beach. There you can rent a water taxi, glass bottom boat (where you can watch the fish), rent a private yacht or small fishing boat. The short ride will have you snapping photos immediately, then you can get off the boat and enjoy the beaches at El Arco.
The Beaches at Land’s End
You may not know it, but there are stunning beaches at El Arco where you can enjoy the sun and sand or the ocean. You can go scuba diving or snorkeling and explore the Land’s End underwater adventure. Two beaches connect here by a quaint cave: Lover’s Beach and Divorce Beach. Lover’s Beach is on the Sea of Cortez and is a spot where you can safely swim, snorkel, or dive. Divorce Beach on the Pacific Ocean, as the name indicates, is less friendly. You should not swim here, although you will love the views.
As the water temperatures in Los Cabos are so comfortable and the currents are calm, diving and snorkeling are great experiences at El Arco. You will enjoy seeing sea lions, turtles, and schools of fish. Pelicans breed at El Arco, so you are sure to see your quota of pelican bombing.
