One of the first images that you see while planning a trip to Cabo San Lucas is ‘The Arch’. One of the first things that you see when you reach Cabo San Lucas is ‘The Arch‘. The moment you hit the beach, this phenomenal natural arch carved by the sea and its waves is impossible to miss. Also called the ‘Lands End‘ because this is the southmost tip of the ‘Baja California‘ peninsula.
And being the prominent structure that it is most of the outdoor activities in Las Cabos revolve around it. One can take a water taxi (a small boat that seats about 8 people) for $10 to take a tour around the Arch and then get dropped at the beach next to it. Specify a time you want to get picked up and the taxi will come pick you up at that time. You can take a snorkeling tour and they will drive you in and around the Arch before taking you to the designated snorkeling area. You can take a kayak guided tour which will start at the harbor take a loop around the Arch and then back. And so many other activities all revolving around this one impressive natural structure.
The Arch has Sea of Cortez on the harbor side and the Pacific ocean on the other side. When the Sea of Cortez is where the calm waters are. The Pacific side has very rough sea with unexpected high tides and everyone is suggested to not swim on that side.
We did a couple of activities and I am putting together pictures of the Arch, its various moods and some of its inhabitants.
