Lovers/Divorce beach is one of the most unique places in the world because lovers beach is a swimmable beach on the Sea of Cortez and a short 100 yard walk takes you to divorce beach which has violent but beautiful waves on the Pacific. It's amazing that you can get to two seas on a connecting beach within 100 yards... More

We took a boat tour and had the boat and our captain all to ourselves mid afternoon. Wonderful photo ops. Lots of pelicans and other birds. He shuttled us around and kept us away from all the crowds and boat traffic. He looped around several times to let us get many pics without lots of other marine traffic in the... More

Lover's Beach is beautiful and you csn swim as long as you pay attention to beach flags. RED flags means no swimming and it is important to pay attention as people have drown in Cabo. Stay close to shore and watch for rip tides. Nice sand and beatiful granite cliffs.

We dared on this adventure outing, making it to the beach and then divorce beach. The ocean was by far the most powerful and treacherous beach experience we have ever had. We waves were just too powerful to even think of going into the water. It was scary but exciting at the same time. The beauty makes up for it,... More

Lovers Beach looked like a nice place to visit. unfortunately the driver of our glass bottom boat did not stop there as water was very choppy and could not get closer.

Bring water and a hat, theres not much shade here. A cheap cooler would be nice to bring full of drinks and snacks. Divorce beach is on the Pacific side, swimming there is dangerous and not recomended. Strong undertows but a great place to hang out and snorkel/swim.

It is iconic to hit "lovers' beach. Water taxi's and other transport will drop you and and then come back on the hour. Locals have water and beer that you can purchase, but it is hot with little shade- you can walk through to the Pacific side as well.

The beach is beautiful!, the waves, the rocks, the views, you will feel in a paradise! the only reason I didn't give 5 stars is all those guys who are "helping" you unload your stuff from the taxi-boat expect a big tip!! even if you don't want their help. anyway, if you don't stop by at lover's beach you will...
