Interesting site, but that's it. Nothing special. you need to pay $15-20/person to see this by a boat. the sea is too rocky to get there.

did a 2 hour boat cruise and the water was an amazing shade of green. It was a bit rough but the experience was a very memorable one....the view of the arc left me thinking I was somewhere of the Mediterranean coast and not in Mexico.

Amazing formation! Husband had a great time when he went snorkeling. The water was a bit choppy, overall a beautiful place to visit.

We went on a tour, people was very polite and helpful. The only problem was that the tide was very high and we were not able to have a longer trip.

Catch a boat shuttle from the Marina (round trip is about 15 per person) and head out to the famous arch. The beach is popular but worth the trip. Snorkeling was amazing, beachcombing delightful and you can rent an umbrella, buy some fresh oysters and beer. We took a picnic lunch and spent the day.

Great adventure to go see this southernmost landmark of the Baja peninsula. Go early to avoid most the other water taxis and tourists.

Paddle your way to Lands End and explore the place at your leisure. The waves can get a little choppy as you get closer to the rock formation but not a difficult paddle and once there, its totally worth it.

I went in January for my cousins wedding, this was the highlight of the trip for me. I thought the beaches were cool but the water was freezing, the air temps only in the high 70s and some rough water. Definitely too many people around even on a cooler day, I'd hate to see it on a warm day...
