Mexico/Baja Sur: Cabo San Lucas – Lovers’ & Divorce Beaches

There are just a few steps from the Lovers Beach to the Divorce Beach at the tip of Baja Peninsula. Lovers Beach faces east and the waters of the Gulf of Baja California, the surf is relatively calm and swimmable, hence the name. Walk just about a hundred meters and past the El Arco at Land’s End and you are at the Divorce Beach, facing the Pacific Ocean in all its fury. The surf here is rough and pounding and the massive waves crash with thundering sound on the long strip of perfect fine yellow sand, and the name “divorce” kind of starts to make sense.
