Playa del Amor (Lover's Beach)#3 in Best Things To Do in Cabo San Lucas
Price & Hours
Located right near the famous Land's End rock formations, Playa del Amor, or Lover's Beach, is one of Cabo's most famous stretches of shoreline. It sits south of Cabo's downtown area, but remains easily accessible by water taxi from the marina. Beachgoers say this stretch of sand is relaxing, providing a nice view of the blue water and a great spot for sunbathing.
However, because of its popularity, Lover's Beach can lose its romantic appeal. For one, there are no bathrooms or beach bars, and some travelers encountered pesky flies. Be sure to bring bug spray if you decide to venture out toward the beach.
Travelers also warn that you should only swim on the Bahia de Cabo San Lucas side. Tides can get extremely rough on the Pacific end, and the area poses a high drowning risk.

#1 Land's End (El Arco)
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.
