Beaches & Water Activities

El Arco

El Arco is an incredible landmark formed over millennia from a rocky protrusion that arches like the tail of a mythical creature. Apart from its characteristic shape, El Arco is famed for being one of the few places in the world where you can swim in both an ocean and a sea. That is, El Arco marks the spot where the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortez meet, whose currents have contributed to the formation of Cabo’s most beloved landmark. Another of the main attractions for visitors to El Arco is to see sea lions, seals and exotic birdlife. Seals and sea lions are renowned for spending their days lounging in the sun at El Arco. Don’t be surprised to feel the splash of a pelican bomb.

Playa El Médano

Playa El Médano, or Médano Beach, is a big spring breaker destination in March. But it’s bustling just about any time of year. In fact, you could say it’s the center of social life in Cabo San Lucas. At nearly two miles long, it will lure you with restaurants, bars, souvenir shops and water sports. Go ahead – rent a wave runner or kayak, go parasailing, or have a water taxi take you out to Land’s End or Lover’s Beach. It’s very safe to swim here, especially in the roped-off areas, although you won’t find any lifeguards in Cabo San Lucas.

Playa Chileno

Playa Chileno, or Chileno Beach, is a true beauty along the corridor that connects cape cities Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo. Local residents love it for the swimming in a protected bay and amenities ranging from bathrooms to food vendors. You’ll encounter the biggest crowds on weekends in high season (December through May). Plan ahead – umbrellas are available to rent, and you can arrange for water sports and more through the dive shop. Snorkeling and diving are first rate, and several charter companies from Cabo San Lucas offer snorkel and dive tours to Chileno Bay.

San Jose Del Cabo Church

This beautiful old church is one of the jewels of San Jose del Cabo’s historic downtown – just steps from City Hall, Casa de la Cultura and Distrito del Arte (Art District). It’s been through several moves and renovations since being founded in 1734 by Jesuit priest and local legend Nicolas Tamaral. Get up-close with Tamaral’s storied past by looking up at the church’s entrance; there, you’ll see a mosaic depicting his killing by the area’s native inhabitants, the Pericúes. The church moved to its current spot near the middle of the 19th century but had to be rebuilt in the 20th century after being hit by a hurricane. It continues to be one of the most important cultural monuments in Los Cabos and hosts daily services.
