This review is only for the water taxi that got us there. I didn’t realize you could go from the marina but even if I had known that we probably wouldn’t of wanted to Uber over there to then get a boat so we just took the lazy route and took a boat from the medano Beach for 18 dollars per person including a tour and then we were dropped on the beach. the guy who ran the operation lied and told us that it was calmer over there than on medano; that was not the case it was not swimmable and it got rougher by the minute.

he told us if we wanted to come back earlier than two hours just find a guy with a walkie-talkie on the beach and he will get the boat back. those guys on the beach don’t even see you as human you’re just cattle and they r there to wrangle you up for the most tips possible even when we told him I wasn’t feeling well he kept lying saying 10 mins but no boat.

Finally the decide to put us on a dif boat than we came in. The ocean was so rough they were having difficulty loading people people were acting desperate like they were refugees pushing and shoving to get on the boat I was almost seriously injured one half my body was dangling off the side of the boat if my friend hadn’t been there to help shove me on who knows what could’ve happened. then she was almost injure trying to climb the ladder and some woman shoved her to the side to get to it first.

then I had to change boats in the ocean because our driver finally showed up so he pulled his boat up next to the boat I was on and I switched like some James Bond stunt and after all that one of the guys on the beach at the audacity to harass us for a tip. Get accurate wind / sea conditions before going bc these guys clearly don’t care about your safety.

We were given too high rates for boat service round-trip ($12-$15 per person round-trip), after just the day before someone had offered to take us there for $5. So we decided to hike it out there on foot. We began from Playa El Corsario and climbed along the rocks, staying low and close to the water. Note, it was low tide when we went which made the trek slightly easier. It was an interesting and unique way to see it due to the fascinating rock formations only visible to an adventurous hiker. We made it to the beach in about 40 minutes. The trek made the arrival all the more breathtaking and rewarding. Beautiful views, nice snorkeling spot with lots of fish and coral. An interesting view point to stand on the edge of the world.

We spent the day here and had so much fun swimming and taking beautiful pictures it's truly so peaceful and serene there. The only negative is there are some vendors trying to sell their products be it jewelry or food. it's a must do!

It is a part of two beaches adjacent to each other (Lovers and Divorce Beaches) and perfect place to set up shop for a day while exploring close by Pelican Rock for some under water action.
Only accessible by water taxi it is best idea to prepare yourself for longer stay and arrange pick up at later time once you there.
On sunny nice day traffic can be annoying.
Lot of people visit the spot so be prepared that it might be not as romantic as you might think, but still strongly recommended while in Cabo

Be aware of the vendors as you get off!! My husband and I took a water taxi and the man in the taxi was very kind. As we hopped onto the beach a man right away helped us off the boat and took us to his stand offering cold beers and drinks. He said this is for all tourists here. We had no cash on us because we left everything at our resort to avoid being pit pocketed. We declined the Drinks at first and then we decided to just have one beer for the sake of a picture on the beach holding a cold one. My husband went and the guy gave it to him and said enjoy and my husband left with the beer. As we were leaving the island getting back on the boat, the vendor ran up to my husband as soon as he saw him and said “you gonna pay?.” We were confused!! He didnt mention how much or the fact that it wasn’t free? He made it seem like it was included with the boat tour! He even let my husband completely walk away to the other side of the island without paying. He then proceeded to tell my husband to pay and my husband told him he has no cash. Then the man told him to make me, the wife, DANCE for him and his friends!! When my husband denied all of this he started calling him all kinds of names. We got off that beach asap. He went nuts. It left a bad taste in our mouths.

Both Lover's Beach and Divorce Beach are interesting and only accessible by water taxi or tour boat. Divorce Beach is on the Pacific side and the currents and waves are much stronger.
Lover's Beach is more peaceful. Divorce Beach is much larger, but more people hang out on Playa del Amor.
Lover's Beach is on the Sea of Cortez and the water is prettier and calmer. Either way - you can enjoy your trip.

Cabo san Lucas is an absolute tourist trap. The experience was mostly stressful as we tried to keep away from all the people who tried to sell us boat trips, jewelry etc.
We paid $20 US per person for return trip to so called Lovers Beach. The captain of the boat then tried to confuse us and make us pay him again another fee. Terrible experience all around.

This beach is amazing ! there's no gimmicks or anything of that sort like restaurants or shops nothing. It's just water, sand, and rocks. I love the peacefulness of it all. The waves crash on the beach really hard so it's beautiful to see. You can walk all the way to the right of the beach to climb some rocks so you could see how the water crashes with the rocks. It's mesmerizing. If you keep hiking/climbing these rocks to the other side you'll find an isolated beach that nobody usually goes to. it's really small but it's even more romantic than the first one because it's so private.

I was there dancing with my love while boats passed by in the distance. One person passed by but that's it. I love this beach!

It was nice to come and see. Water was ruff . The beach was clean . There is no bathrooms. We spent 1 1/2 hrs soaking up the sun. Bring what you need for drinks and snack but there was someone who was selling stuff.

Worth the few bucks to take a water taxi out to the Arches for some walking about and snorkeling. Just be careful to swim only on the inside and not in the open ocean. It's a beautiful and isolated walk about and great for photos. You can walk down and around the Arches and take in the resorts there too.
