You either have to take a boat here or walk throughout the public beach area. I preferred walking. Way more adventurous.

If you just like to hang out it fine . No food or drink available on beach unless they have put a stand up. YOu have to jump off boat and wate in shoulder deep. Once was enough for us

When my boyfriend and I were in Cabo, we stayed at the Riu Santa Fe. We walked about a mile along the beach to enjoy the view and we were able to barter with one of the locals to get a boat ride to Lover's Beach for $20! They wanted to sell it to us for $30. I would totally... More

It's pretty much par for the course if you visit Cabo San Lucas you make a trip to Lover's Beach. Catch a water taxi in the marina. Cost me $12US round trip. It's a nice cruise out to the beach, which you pretty much have to get to by water taxi. You'll pass Pelican Rock on the way. That's a... More

Nothing better to be with the person you love in a such a relaxing and romantic place, the mix of beach, sun, water, a boat with a beautiful view is priceless.

Jump off the rocks (be careful) into the sea; It's such a cool experience. The Beach is nice, clean, but (as with any "attraction") it can be a little packed, so I recommend going early in the morning.

There were vendor's selling beers and mango's (the mango was AWESOME, peeled and cut on a stick and looked... More

this area is beautiful! we took a water taxi out to the beach and the only part that concerned me was getting in and out of the water taxi being there is no dock :) but everyone helped out, made for a laugh!

Be sure to take snacks and water over since there isn't a store; If snorkeling then take your own and you won't have to rent/pay for it.

This is one of those sights that you should go to at least once. It's great to walk around to both Lovers Beach (Sea of Cortez) then to the opposite side (Divorce Beach -- Pacific Ocean). If you happen to be there when the tide is low enough to walk under the arch ... that's amazing. However, if you visit... More
