Loved this beach and such fun to ride over in the small taxi boat:) We liked the lovers beach side that is calm and the rougher divorce beach on the other side.

Be aware of the vendors as you get off!! My husband and I took a water taxi and the man in the taxi was very kind. As we hopped onto the beach a man right away helped us off the boat and took us to his stand offering cold beers and drinks. He said this is for all tourists here. We had no cash on us because we left everything at our resort to avoid being pit pocketed. We declined the Drinks at first and then we decided to just have one beer for the sake of a picture on the beach holding a cold one. My husband went and the guy gave it to him and said enjoy and my husband left with the beer. As we were leaving the island getting back on the boat, the vendor ran up to my husband as soon as he saw him and said “you gonna pay?.” We were confused!! He didnt mention how much or the fact that it wasn’t free? He made it seem like it was included with the boat tour! He even let my husband completely walk away to the other side of the island without paying. He then proceeded to tell my husband to pay and my husband told him he has no cash. Then the man told him to make me, the wife, DANCE for him and his friends!! When my husband denied all of this he started calling him all kinds of names. We got off that beach asap. He went nuts. It left a bad taste in our mouths.

Worth the few bucks to take a water taxi out to the Arches for some walking about and snorkeling. Just be careful to swim only on the inside and not in the open ocean. It's a beautiful and isolated walk about and great for photos. You can walk down and around the Arches and take in the resorts there too.

it is a good beach to hang out with your boyfriend but the waters are not good for swimming (keep that in mind), we also thought we could walk from here to El arco but our driver from Cape Transfers (the cabo airport transportation company everyone uses to get to their resorts because of their rates) told us that actually it is not possible to walk in "el arco" anytime you visit Cabo, it is only possible like once every 4 years :/

Not too crowded on a Thursday in November, the waters can be a bit rough. We brought snorkel gear but instead we waded a bit and took in some sun.

The time we spent at the beach was great. The water was great even though it was a little rough. It wasn't too crowded. But go early because the water gets choppy and they will close the beach.

We spent the day here and had so much fun swimming and taking beautiful pictures it's truly so peaceful and serene there. The only negative is there are some vendors trying to sell their products be it jewelry or food. it's a must do!

This review is only for the water taxi that got us there. I didn’t realize you could go from the marina but even if I had known that we probably wouldn’t of wanted to Uber over there to then get a boat so we just took the lazy route and took a boat from the medano Beach for 18 dollars per person including a tour and then we were dropped on the beach. the guy who ran the operation lied and told us that it was calmer over there than on medano; that was not the case it was not swimmable and it got rougher by the minute.

he told us if we wanted to come back earlier than two hours just find a guy with a walkie-talkie on the beach and he will get the boat back. those guys on the beach don’t even see you as human you’re just cattle and they r there to wrangle you up for the most tips possible even when we told him I wasn’t feeling well he kept lying saying 10 mins but no boat.

Finally the decide to put us on a dif boat than we came in. The ocean was so rough they were having difficulty loading people people were acting desperate like they were refugees pushing and shoving to get on the boat I was almost seriously injured one half my body was dangling off the side of the boat if my friend hadn’t been there to help shove me on who knows what could’ve happened. then she was almost injure trying to climb the ladder and some woman shoved her to the side to get to it first.

then I had to change boats in the ocean because our driver finally showed up so he pulled his boat up next to the boat I was on and I switched like some James Bond stunt and after all that one of the guys on the beach at the audacity to harass us for a tip. Get accurate wind / sea conditions before going bc these guys clearly don’t care about your safety.

You can take a water taxi to this beach from so many of the resorts and hotels. GREAT PHOTO OPS here. There are rocks to climb and also a good area to snorkel
