El Arco de Cabo San Lucas, Cabo San Lucas

4.8
#1 of 1,104 in Parks in Mexico
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.

  • 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.
