|About these ratings|
Located at the southern end of Cabo San Lucas and sandwiched between Playa del Amor and Playa del Divorcio, these rock formations were created from the rough winds and seas of the southern Baja Peninsula. Sea lions frequent the area (especially along the Los Frailes rock formation), and Land's End remains excellent for couples looking for a romantic spot to see the sunset.
Recent travelers said this area is particularly picturesque (making for great photo ops) and the best way to see it is from one of the water taxis or boat tours (some even offer glass-bottom boats so you can check out the sea life as well). Some do note some setbacks to the area, though. For one, there are very few vendors or facilities, but that also makes it an ideal place for peace and quiet. Travelers especially warn against swimming on the Pacific Ocean side of Land's End, as the surf can get very rough, pulling swimmers away from shore and out toward the ocean. Many drownings have occurred in this area, so do yourself a favor and bring only your camera, not a swimsuit.
You can't reach Land's End on foot, the best way to get there is via water taxi from the downtown marina.
