you have to make sure you stay on this side of the beach and you secure good security, because you are far from the popular beaches near Playa del Amor, but you will like the views, the water and the tranquility. Please note, there are no bathrooms here.

This is an amazing beach for both swimming and snorkeling. We did both. We walked the Lover's Beach side, and the Divorce Beach side (much rougher water). Both were great! We snorkeled with Roger from Roger's Boat Tours, and he was outstanding. A private snorkeling tour. We also jumped from a big rock, super fun. We saw so many fish,... More

This seemed like a very nice beach. Could have spend hours wading in the waves! A must if you're in Cabo San Lucas!

We all enjoyed our 'Lover's Beach' trip (we booked through guys at beach entrance to our hotel (Pueblo Bonita Rose) and our boat had good steps to get in and out of the boat - not all do - so beware. Our captain was great! There is beer and water for purchase over there (so take some cash). When you... More

Water taxi over you can get some great photos early morning. Boat traffic gets busy in mid morning and afternoon. Beer can be bought on the beach!

We took an hour and a half tour / visit to Lover's Beach / the Arch. It cost $10 each from Medano Beach (in front of Mango Deck). We were in a glass bottom boat and got to see lots of fish, seals and the arch before getting to Lover's Beach, It was low tide, so we were able to... More

Beautiful clear water, colorful fish, soft sand, and amazing rock formations make this a great place to explore. Just be safe and don't swim in the Pacific Ocean on the other side. It can be rough! Great for snorkeling and right next to the iconic El Arco (the arch). It's possible to hike over here, or even swim, but a... More

We took a water taxi here and immediately people try to help you off the boat (which is generally not necessary) and then ask for tips. If you plan to go here, bring your own drinks and food as the vendors are expensive, and don't plan on most water taxis picking you up exactly when you ask them to, ours... More

From Grand Solmar where we were staying it was a short scramble over the rocks at Land's End to get to Divorce Beach and Lover's Beach. It was neat to see but the constant water taxi and excursion traffic from the harbour really detracted from the charm of this attraction.
