El Arco is an exceedingly popular tourist attraction. The unique rock formation stretches out into the crystal-clear waters where the Pacific Ocean meets the Sea of Cortez. No wonder it is the number one reason for countless vacation photos.
A visit to the Land's End of the Baja Peninsula, next door to Grand Solmar, is undoubtedly one of the most popular things to do in Cabo San Lucas. In every sense, this site is not to be missed.
Whether viewed from a distance or from almost any vantage point, the image of El Arco is synonymous with Cabo San Lucas. By the way, there’s a reason it’s called Land’s End. If you followed a direct line south from here, you would not touch land again until you reached the South Pole.
Getting there is easy. Just hail a boat taxi (some with glass bottoms) from the Cabo San Lucas marina. You can view the iconic golden arch from your boat or ask the captain to drop you off at Lover’s Beach (located near the Arch) and arrange for a pick-up time. Enroute, you’ll pass lazy sea lions basking on the rocks.
