There are plenty fun-filled activities you can engage in while you are in Cabo San Lucas, from fishing to swimming and surfing. There is so much to see and eat too. Let’s take a look at two places you would love to visit in Cabo San Lucas.
Land’s End (El Arco)
Land’s End is located in the southern region of Cabo and is placed between Playa del Divorcio and Playa del Amor. The rocks were formed as a result of rough winds and seas of the southern Baja and the peninsula. The Land’s End remains one of the best romantic spots for couples looking to walk down a cool evening and see the sunset in its glory. You will also see a lot of sea lions in the area, especially around the Los Frailes rock formation. The area is awesome. A nice spot for making great photos as it is very picturesque. The best way to see this place is by boarding one of the water taxis or going on a boat tour. You can even get a charter that offers glass-bottom boats which will enable you to have a nice view of the sea life as well.
There are few activities in this area, the place is particularly very quiet and peaceful. You should note that tourists are warned against swimming on the Pacific Ocean side of Land’s End. The sea usually gets very rough and pulls swimmers away from the shore into the ocean. The area has recorded a number of drowning, so it is advised you to leave your swimsuit behind and tour with just your camera. Note that you can’t get to the Land’s End on foot, the easiest way to get there is with a water taxi from downtown marina.
