If you walk the beach in Cabo long enough, you might become irritated with all the vendors offering you jewelry, hats, water activities, etc. If this is you, take a water taxi over to Lover's/Divorce beach! There are a few vendors, but they are not as aggressive and persistent. We took a six pack over and enjoyed the afternoon here.... More

The beach on lovers beach is rough and dangerous for kids at times. There are no facilities bring your own water and what ever. Divorce beach is only for experienced boogie boarders and surfers. People die every year and you will see why when your there. Terrific rock formations all over. Overall nice site seeing but not much else.

The sand is nice, the waves are dangerous for swimming. I watched those that took a dip struggle to get back up on the beach from the undertow on the Pacific side, There were some swimmers on the Mar De Cortes side where the boats drop you off. The waters were a little calmer there. Lots of people walking to... More

I just returned from Cabo and it was simply amazing! Lovers beach was a $15, 5 minute boat ride from the beach.. very scenic and exhilarating. There you will see many pelicans, and crabs. We went in January so the tides were very strong. The sand is great for exfoliating , its soft but not as grainy as other places... More

My wife and I stopped at lovers beach. It's nice to say we were there, but that's about it. It's a very small area and pretty crowded with tourists and there is nothing to do.

Lovers Beech has washed away. The size of the Beech is about 25% of what it used to be. Not much room to spread out or swim. Can not access Pelican Rock from Lovers anymore.

Nothing unique about this beach but the sand is fine and walking is easy. Not any different than all the other beaches in the area.

Took a water taxi here nearly every day of our stay in Cabo. You can rental snorkel gear for $10 a day from a fellow on the beach and there is always someone walking around selling cold beer. Much quieter than the more accessible beaches.

Fabulous just before sunset. Combine with snorkeling, a tour of the arch, sea lion rocks, etc for $25 - $30 if you grind a bit.
