What's more fun than a calf scramble? Hauling your carcass, your camera, your ice chest and whatever else you brought in and out of a pitching bronco of a little boat along with 5 or more other strangers. The surf at Lover's Beach is rough enough as you approach the beach that the boat drivers won't land. Instead, you have... More

Go when the cruise ships aren't there! Bring snacks in plastic containers and water of course too. We travel with our own snorkel equipment -- a mask and snorkel are very easy to pack and flippers can be too.

Nice stop off point on Tour of Lands End. Great place to snorkel for a couple of hours and they will pick you up at an assigned time.

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
