|Arch of Cabo San Lucas|
|Location||Cabo San Lucas, Mexico|
|Nearest city||Cabo San Lucas|
|Elevation||200 ft (61 m)|
The arch of Cabo San Lucas is a distinctive granitic rock formation at the southern tip of Cabo San Lucas, which is itself the extreme southern end of Mexico's Baja California Peninsula. The arch is locally known as "El Arco," which means "the arch" in Spanish, or "Land's End." It is here that the Pacific Ocean becomes the Gulf of California.
This area is widely used in hotel advertising in the Los Cabos Corridor. This spot is a popular gathering area for sea lions and is frequented by tourists. The Arch of Cabo San Lucas is adjacent to Lovers Beach on the Sea of Cortez side and Divorce Beach on the rougher Pacific Ocean side.
