El Arco de Cabo San Lucas, Cabo San Lucas

4.8
#1 of 429 in Nature 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.

  • It is worth making the trip on boats from the jetty to the Arch. The swell is sometimes strong, but travels a safe one with lifeguards and the views are breathtaking, not only of the arch but of the whole area.

  • Beautiful landscape, easy access by catamaran, boat or yacht. Don't you ever attempt to enter this water... this ocean is wild and it may seen at time is quiet ocean but is not, stay safe and enjoy the view from a safe place. A must visit while in Cabo
  • Highly recommend taking a sunset cruise to the arch for a breath taking view of some beautiful natural scenery and the gorgeous city of Cabo San Lucas on the side of the mountains. Views are wonderful, the feeling of having the entire Pacific Ocean all around you is just a cherry on top.
