El Arco from the Pacific Ocean side

Arguably the most iconic landmark of Cabo San Lucas is Land's End or El Arco. The water is somewhat calm on the Sea of Cortez side but as you will see becomes very different on the Pacific side

The west end of Cabo San Lucas Bay abounds with rock formations, but none can match the grandeur of El Arco. Known in English as The Arch, El Arco is located at Land's End in Cabo, and this spectacular landmark is one of the iconic symbols of the area. It is often pictured on postcards and souvenirs that depict the Baja Peninsula.

El Arco Cabo San Lucas is a 200-foot granite rock situated at the tip of the Land's End peninsula. A major landmark, El Arco Mexico attracts hundreds of tourists who come to see its spectacular natural shape, which was carved by the strong ocean currents. Centuries ago, The Arch was used as a hiding place by pirates, who would ambush and plunder merchant ships heading toward the west coast.


PS can you see the dragon drinking water?
