Lands End on the California Baja is one of the biggest attractions when visiting Los Cabos. This is were the Sea of Cortez meets the Pacific Ocean. You will see stunning rock formations, many look like animals, the famous Arch carved out by the sea, California sea lions sunbathing on the rocks and if you are lucky, whales. Our guide could only speak a few words of English and would sound like the animals as he pointed them out. It was absolutely hilarious. The boat ride can get very bumpy especially when you cross over to the Pacific Ocean side. At one point you can see both the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific Ocean.
For only $12 round trip from the Cabo Marina, take a glass bottom boat out to see Lands End. You are out on the boat for about 45 minutes before you are dropped off at Lover’s Beach, a popular cruise ship destination so expect crowds if a ship is at port. This beach is one of the few areas you can swim. You can use the beach chairs supplied by the restaurants but you must buy drinks or pay to rent the chairs, $10 each. You are better off buying a few drinks and they will leave you alone.
Beware of the people selling timeshares. This area is especially bad for this. You are constantly asked to buy a T-shirt, jewelry, or a timeshare by someone. After a few hours of harassment, I was ready to leave to a more relaxed atmosphere.I would recommend taking the glass bottom boat to see the famous Arch but I would skip Lover’s Beach. This is your typical tourist trap and you are literally trapped until you get picked up by the boat to take you back to the marina.
