While I understand it is possible to walk to El Arco from the Marina, it's quite a hike -- we opted to take a water taxi to Pelican Beach and explore mid-Land's End. The waters are swim-able and the views towards Medano Beach spectacular. Highly recommend a visit.

We booked a day trip (for a great price) from our hotel in San Jose to visit Los Cabos City and take a glass-bottom boat out to the Golden Arch. The fish we saw were spectacular - particularly at Pelican Beach! Wow. The boat offered to leave as at Lovers Beach & retrieve later (we chose not) - but the... More

For $24 my wife and I went by boat to view Pelican Beach, Lovers Beach and go on other side where you are no longer in Sea of Cortez but on the Pacifica side. You could get off boat at Pelican Beach and stay and they would pick you up later

The iconic arch that represents land's end in Cabo is a pretty spectacular sight where the mountain range of the Baja finally sinks into the waters at the confluence of the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific Ocean. Whether you view this marvel of nature from a distance while sipping on a margarita or close by in a rockin' and... More

We go here every year for pictures & look @ God's beautiful creation, beaches & great weather. You need to take a water taxi or "panga" to get there, sometimes there is a lot of boat & jetski traffic, so keep that in mind.

When u are in Cabo take a sunset cruise to look at El Arco. We rode the surfrider for the sunset cruise and it will take you around El Arco and give you opportunities to take some pictures.
