The Finisterra

The Finisterra, or Land’s End rock formation, is a natural rock arch that formed just where the Sea of Cortés and the Pacific meet, is such a unique attraction that it has become a kind of symbol for the beauty of the region. You will find a clear line divides the shallow light blue sea water and the deep blue ocean water. Sea lions live on the surrounding rocks. Many boats leave the beach to get to this point and a round trip will generally run around $10.

 

The Playa Médano

The Playa Médano is the main beach, a safe and popular place for swimming (since many other beaches have cold and rough waters), where you can rent snorkeling gear as well as non-motorized water equipment here – vendors offer to rent just about anything you might desire -- plus it’s a good spot for swimming and sunbathing.

 

Museo de las Californias

 Address Hidalgo and Avenue Cabo San Lucas, (across from Mi Casa)
 Admission $1

The Museo de las Californias is a small museum that specializes in fossils found in southern Baja and area indigenous communities.

 

San José del Cabo

Just northeast of town, on the Paseo Malecón San José, there is an estatuary, Estero San José, filled with hundreds of birds, is a nice place to walk around and to bird-watch. You can arrive by kayak or by foot. There is no entry charge.

This area is great for adventure – snorkeling, hiking, kayaking, whale watching and more. Check out the snorkeling, hikes, kayaking, whale watching, and Jeep tours at Baja Wild. Baja Adventure also offers kayaking, whale watching and day trips – as well as bungalows.
