Playa del Amor was a welcome relief to the disappointment of the main beach in Cabo San Lucas. Cabo San Lucas beach is completely packed full of restaurants and tourist traps with no public or open areas to lay down without paying for a seat. To get to Playa del Amor, you have to pay 250-300 pesos (16-20 dollars) to... More

We were recommended to do a tour around Land's End by many people and then to spend some time at Lover's Beach. The trip was quite neat, though it is interesting trying to figure out just who to trust to take you out there. We went with some guys at the marina and it cost $10 usd each. The tour... More

Pretty to look at, but not so easy to get to. Yes, the boats do drop you off, but it is a wild ride, as they attempt to still the boat in undulating waves that toss and turn the boat, smashing toes and bodies against wood and steel ladders and decks and rocks, all as the salty foam spray of...

My friend and I swam there along the coast with our snorkel gear we bought at Costco. There wasn't a lot of sandy spots on the hike there because of the hurricane, but its still a must go and check out. There were all kinds of cool tidepools with crabs and other sea creatures all along the way there. The... More

Loved Lover's Beach and Divorce Beach, a must see in Cabo. Quick boat ride for $10 from Marina right out to the beach. They had guys there very good about helping you off the boat as it was rough the day we were there. They took our bags first, then had us jump off. Roger's Boat took us there and... More

We have taken whale watching and glass bottom boat excursions to Lover's Beach and around the Arch. The water is fairly protected on the bay or eastern side of the Arch peninsula, so no matter how small the boat, it is not going to be a worry. You only get the ocean rollers when you come around the tip of... More

We didn't stop and spend anytime at the beach, but we did take a glass bottom boat over from our resort to tour around Lovers and Divorce Beach, and to see the famous Arch! A must do when visiting Cabo!
