Tucked away amidst the vibrant Los Cabos scene, Lovers Beach (Playa del Amor) in Cabo San Luca Bay is a secluded beach paradise on the southern tip of the Baja California Peninsula. Its pristine sands and dramatic rock formations make it a must-visit for those seeking a tranquil escape on the Beaches of Los Cabos.

Aspects of Lovers Beach in Cabo

  • Secluded Beauty: Lovers Beach is a hidden gem at the southern tip of the Baja California Peninsula. No resorts or developments are here, just pristine sand and dramatic rock formations.
  • Double the Ocean Experience: One of Lovers Beach’s unique features is it borders both the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortez. The Sea of Cortez side is calm and perfect for swimming and snorkeling, while the Pacific side offers stunning views of crashing waves (swimming is out of the question due to the strong currents and waves).
  • Land’s End Landmark: Lovers Beach is right next to El Arco, the iconic rock arch symbol of Cabo San Lucas. Getting a photo with El Arco in the background is a must-do for any visitor.
  • Water Taxi Access: The only way to Lovers Beach is by water taxi or boat tour. The short ride is a great way to cool off and enjoy the scenery.
  • Limited Amenities: Lovers Beach does not have shops, restaurants, or restrooms. Be sure to pack snacks, drinks, and sunscreen for your visit.
  • Great for Snorkeling: The clear waters of the Sea of Cortez teem with colorful fish and other marine life. Before you get there, rent snorkel gear and jump in.
  • Relaxation and Romance: With its stunning scenery and secluded setting, Lovers Beach is the perfect place to relax and soak up the sun. It’s also a popular spot for couples, hence the name!

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.
