    Sightsee at Arco de San Lucas

    An arc-shaped rock formation at the southern tip of Cabo San Lucas

    The Arch of Cabo San Lucas is a prominent rock formation marking the southernmost point in Cabo San Lucas. Often referred to as El Arco, the arch is only accessible by water taxi from the downtown marina. Land’s End is one of the most romantic spots to see the sunset – you might even see sea lions gathering along the Los Frailes rock formation. 

    Many tourists arrange for a glass-bottom boat tour, which allows you to see the sea life below. Land’s End is where the Pacific Sea meets the Sea of Cortez, so currents are strong - swimming isn’t encouraged in the area.

    Spend the day at Lovers Beach

    Sunbathe with views of white sands and rock formations

    Playa del Amor (Lovers Beach) is a secluded beach in the southernmost coast of Cabo San Lucas. It’s relatively undeveloped – you can pretty much spend the entire day sunbathing with a spectacular scenery of beautiful white sand and turquoise waters. Take a selfie with El Arco and Neptune’s Finger, 2 limestone rock formations jutting out of the sea. 

    The best way to get to Lovers Beach is by joining a cruise or water taxi from Medano Beach. There are local vendors selling snacks and renting out beach umbrellas, but you can bring your own picnic to the beach.

    Join a whale watching cruise

    Spot the elusive humpback and grey whales

    Plan your Cabo San Lucas holiday between December and April to enjoy the possibility of spotting wild whales. During this time of the year, pods of humpback and grey whales migrate south to the warm waters of the Sea of Cortez. 

    Join a whale watching cruise and sail alongside these majestic mammals. Sometimes you can also catch sights of dolphins, sea lions, and sea turtles during these excursions. There are many cruises in Cabo that offer tours varying from 2 hours to an entire day.

    Hike Mount Solmar

    See the famous white cross

    Mount Solmar is one of best spots to see the sunrise and sunset in Cabo San Lucas. The summit takes around 30 minutes, and you’ll be greeted with views over downtown Cabo and all its beaches. 

    Access to the hiking trail is on a private property south of the Cabo Marina, but its owners are quite used to visitors looking to climb this iconic mountain.
