“Soft sand and a beautiful view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

but the ocean waters are tricky. Only swim on the Pacific side of El Arcl if you are a very very good swimmer! Trust me on this one!

“One of the best beaches”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

Clean white soft sand. Beautiful rock formations. Swimming on the Pacific side is dangerous because of the undertow and rapid drop off. Swimming on the bay side is safe. Go either early in the AM or near Sunset to avoid crowds which will diminish the experience

“Excellent Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

The water was calm and we enjoyed swimming. If you want to enjoy the blessings of calm water just go to other side and have a look at divorce beach that gets the full swell of pacific ocean. I would recommend lovers beach over medano beach which is pretty much crowded, just take water taxi and enjoy your stay

“Lovers Beach and Divorce Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

Lovers beach is on the East Side - the Sea of Cortez side of the Arches and is often decently calm for swimming. Divorce beach is the West side (pacific Ocean) and has very strong rip currents and thick shore break that is horribly dangerous to swim at. Many locals have told me at least 3-5 people a year die at the Pacific side Divorce beach.
