Trip Planner: Mexico / Baja California / Baja California Sur / Los Cabos / Cabo San Lucas / El Arco de Cabo San Lucas
Watch as the waves crash against El Arco de Cabo San Lucas, an arched rock formation at the southern tip of Mexico's Baja California Peninsula. Created by erosion over millennia, the distinctive rock formation serves as a meeting point for local sea lion colonies; keep your eyes peeled for the large creatures as you admire the rocks. Don't be tempted to go in the water--strong currents and rocky surroundings make the area unsuitable for swimming. You can access the beach near the rock formation by water taxi from the nearby city.

El Arco de Cabo San Lucas Reviews
Vale la pena realizar el viaje en los barcos que van del embarcadero hasta el Arco. El oleaje es a veces fuerte, pero viaja uno seguro con salvavidas y las vistas son impresionantes, no solo del arco ... more »It is worth making the trip on boats from the jetty to the Arch. The swell is sometimes strong, but travels a safe one with lifeguards and the views are breathtaking, not only of the arch but of the whole area.

We went on a boat tour here. It was beautiful. The sea lion colony stunk to high heaven, but was still super neat to see. We spent the afternoon on Divorce Beach right beside the arch on the Pacific side of the island. The currents were to strong for anything other than just ankle deep wading but the children had a blast playing in the waves, and the sand was nice and fine.
Beautiful place to visit at least once. There were no cruise ships there today so it was not crowded. The view and short whale watching trip made it a great day to be in Cabo.
