Table of Contents

Can You Walk To Lovers Beach Cabo? The common answer is no. Lovers Beach (Playa del Amor) in Cabo San Lucas is not accessible by foot. The only way to reach this secluded beach is by water.

To get to the beach, visitors typically use water taxis available from the marina in Cabo San Lucas or Medano Beach for a quick and scenic ride directly to the beach.

The not-so-common answer is yes. You can walk or, more correctly, hike to the beach.

If you can call it a path, it passes near the water line, on the rocks, and occasionally, you will have to jump over water (tide height dependent).

Hiking to Lovers Berach is only for some. It is for those in good shape and who are easy on their feet.

The walking path to Lover’s Beach

Walking to Lovers Beach on the side of the rock begins at Cannery Beach, just outside the Cabo San Lucas Marina entrance and the cruise port. You need to cross the beach from there, and there’s only one way to walk. The hike to the beach itself takes about 20-45 minutes. See the map below. The red line indicates the “path”.

Exploring Lovers Beach in Cabo San Lucas

Can You Walk to Lovers Beach Cabo?

As mentioned, Lover’s Beach, nestled in the scenic Cabo San Lucas, is inaccessible by foot or car. Still, the moderately challenging route can be a rewarding experience for those who opt to hike or boat there.

If you’re wondering, “Can you walk to Lovers Beach Cabo?” the answer is no—access is by water only. Many choose to rent a kayak or join a water taxi from the marina.

How to Reach Lover’s Beach by Hike

At Los Cabos

I used to live in Los Cabos for some time and worked here as a boat captain in one of Cabo San Lucas' leading tour companies. Back then, I came for 6 months but stayed for 18. I've done a bunch of things, and visited multiple hemispheres. I traveled and lived in other countries. And now I'm back here, At Los Cabos.
