Welcome to a place of intrigue – El Arco de Cabo San Lucas, or in English, the arch of Cabo San Lucas. To begin, this beautiful rock formation marks Land’s End. The name comes from its location at the southern end of the Baja Peninsula. It’s accessible by boat, and it offers many great activities both in the water and out of the water.
When you visit the Arch of Cabo San Lucas, you’ll discover two beaches: Playa de Amore, or Lover’s Beach in English, and Playa Divorcio, or Divorce Beach in English. As you can probably guess, Playa de Amore is generally calm and it’s a great place to swim and go snorkeling.
On the other hand, there are dangers afoot, if you ever venture into the waters of Playa Divorcio.
Playa Divorcio is great for laying on beach. But, It’s a very dangerous place to swim. For example, there are strong currents, crashing waves, and rip tides that can quickly pull you out to sea. So, stay out of the water along this beach! And beware, there are no lifeguards there. Swimming is much safer at Playa de Amore.
There’s an old superstition, that may be true, about love and tragedy. As the story goes: back in the 18th century, a beautiful local woman rescued a Japanese sailor near Lands End. They fell in love and enjoyed their time together at Playa de Amor. But then, the Japanese sailor was rejected by her father. So, in an act of anger, her father murdered the sailor. Then, she took her own life by committing suicide on Divorce Beach.
Okay, now wipe away your tears and put on a smile…
