Find out how the Arch of Cabo San Lucas was created and how you can get the best views. Book a tour with Cabo Adventures and come visit The Cabo Arch today!
The Arch of Cabo San Lucas, which you may also know as “Land's End,” is a travel icon commonly seen on postcards and brochures for Cabo vacations. This majestic rock formation is situated on the southernmost tip of Mexico's Baja California Peninsula and is roughly three stories tall. The arch was naturally carved by wind, waves, and erosion millions of years ago.
The Cabo Arch attracts tourists due to its scenic appeal, but also because it is often a hot spot for sea lion colonies and, in the winter, migrating whales. Plus, it is an incredible snorkeling and scuba diving location with an abundance of tropical fish and coral.
