When you visit Cabo San Lucas it’s very easy to become overwhelmed by the sheer amount of options available to you, with so many landmarks worth seeing in Cabo! There’s so much to see and do that it can be easy to just sit on the beach all day while deciding what top landmark to visit! But never fear; we have a list of the top landmarks worth seeing in Cabo.

- Cabo san Lucas Marina and Flea Market
- Chileno Beach
- Vitrofusion Glass blowing factory

No vacation to Cabo San Lucas would be complete without at least a flying visit to the geological landmark that is the El Arco rock formation. Sitting at the southernmost point of Cabo San Lucas, this wonder of nature provides shelter and home to many aquatic creatures and is a perfect place to go snorkelling, sea-lion watching, pelican spotting or even whale watching (in the winter time). In short, El Arco is a must see for all who pass through Los Cabos! Don’t let the chance to see the splendour of nature pass you by!
The Cabo san Lucas Marina is undoubtedly a landmark, albeit a man made one, but could also be considered somewhat of an institution! The Marina is more than just a place to dock your yacht (if you’re lucky enough to have one); it’s a place to eat, a place to enjoy the view, a place to find entertainment, and you can even book a water taxi to El Arco! The market at the Marina is filled with artisans of all kinds, selling everything from textiles, clothes, crafts, silver jewellery and even original artwork. The market is a perfect place to find your Cabo san Lucas souvenirs; shopaholics and art lovers alike will not be disappointed by what’s on offer.
Most hotels and resorts in Cabo San Lucas have access to private, secure beaches, but this doesn’t mean that you should avoid visiting Chileno Beach. This beach is one of the most popular public beaches in Cabo (so much so, it has made it to our list of top landmarks worth seeing in Cabo!) and is the perfect place for a day out with friends and family. Here you can jet ski, snorkel, paddle board, or even kayak. The beach is clean, the waters are safe, and the locals are friendly. Why not get out and about; Chileno beach is the perfect place to spend a day in the Mexican sun!
Glass blowing is an old and skilled practice that produces some really stunning pieces of work. At the Vitrofusion factory you can watch the masters at work, true, but you can also learn from them and, thereby, create something to take home. This unique souvenir of Cabo San Lucas can serve as a beautiful reminder of a memorable vacation in the sun!
The southernmost point of Baja California is a truly remarkable site; here at Lands End, nature and man meet the awesome might of the ocean. It is believed that if you were to set off to the south from this point you would not meet land again until you hit Antarctica.
