Best Land's End beaches.
Lovers Beach, Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
NileGuide Expert tip:
Do not under any circumstance go swimming at Divorce Beach.
This is as close as you can get to Land's End. Lover's Beach is on the Sea of Cortez/Bahia San Lucas side, and generally has safe swimming and good snorkeling conditions. Walk through a gap in the rocks and you are on Divorce Beach, looking out at the Pacific Ocean. The locals like to joke that Divorce Beach is five times the size of Lover's Beach for a very good reason. Do not under any circumstances swim off of Divorce Beach. The rip currents here are extremely strong, and rogue waves have been known to sweep people into the water. Be alert. This is a great beach, but people drown here occasionally, and there aren't any lifeguards in Cabo San Lucas. You can get out to the beaches by taking a panga (water taxi) ride, or by renting a kayak. Pangas will cost you in the neighborhood of 10 USD per trip, and make sure you remind the driver to come back and get you. There are occasionally beer vendors on Lover's Beach, but don't count on being able to buy anything out here. These are marvelous secluded beaches that can only be reached by water, and they are generally not terribly crowded.
