Playa del Amor

On the most southern parts of the Baja Peninsula are two beaches which are famous – the Playa del Amor and the Playa del Divorcio. We rented a boat to visit the Lover’s beach. The Divorce beach was located toward the Pacific Ocean with rough waves and not a place to spend time at.We were thirteen people. It was a family reunion.

Every four years, the ocean becomes so low that one can walk through this arch on the right. With the oceans becoming higher, this might not be possible anymore.

It was fun to make some Yoga poses together with my sister in law Marie





Although we all were looking forward to the snorkelling experience and rented wet suits, the water was cold and we did not stay too long on the little beach called Pelican Rock. I do not have photos from the many colourful fish we saw.
