(4:56 in the video) If you’re up for a vacation road trip, head out to Migriño Beach. This area is a thrill-seeker’s heaven, so if you consider yourself an adrenalin junkie make this destination number one on your travel itinerary.
(5:20 in the video) Perhaps the most famous attraction in Los Cabos, Land’s End is a spectacular rocky headland at the very tip of Baja. This is the place where the tempestuous Pacific meets the calm and inviting Sea of Cortez. Head out on a boat tour to fully explore this magnificent headland.
(5:28 in the video) Aptly named, Lover’s Beach is a tranquil and romantic cove at the tip of the Land’s End headland, accessible only by boat. Book a water taxi and ask your driver to stop here so that you can enjoy the calm, clear waters for a few hours.
(5:36 in the video) Wander from Lover’s Beach through the rocky gorge to Divorce Beach. This larger beach stands in stark contrast to its calm little sister. Walk along the shoreline, but don’t get any ideas about plunging in; this beach is considered unsafe for swimming.
(5:45 in the video) Standing at the very edge of Land’s End is what can only be described as a gateway to the ocean. El Arco is a craggy rock formation which has been formed by 30 million years of erosion. This is the most famous attraction in Los Cabos, making it a well-known symbol of the region.
