El Arco: A Must See in Los Cabos

If you’re visiting Secrets Marquis Los Cabos, you’ll want to be sure to stop by our excursions desk to set-up a tour of one of the most famous wonders in Mexico–El Arco!

This 200-foot granite rock is uniquely shaped in an arch and situated next to Playa del Amor or Lover’s Beach. Each year, El Arco attracts thousands and thousands of tourists who are in awe of its natural shape, which was carved by the strong ocean currents.

Centuries ago, El Arco was used as a hiding place by pirates, who would ambush and plunder merchant ships heading toward the west coast. Today, this unique and eye-catching landmark attracts cruise ships and mini boats filled with tourists looking to snap some photos. It’s a true beauty for anyone who comes to see it and is often pictured on postcards and souvenirs that depict the many natural marvels of the Baja Peninsula.
