Playa del Amor

Cabo San Lucas

Baja's most famous beach, Playa del Amor (Lover's Beach) has stunning white sands adjacent to El Arco on the Pacific and bay sides. You can walk between the two sides to see different angles of El Arco and swim in the bay. Unfortunately the Pacific side is unsafe for swimming, and is jokingly referred to as Divorce Beach.
