Old Lighthouse Beach - Playa El Faro Viejo

Cabo San Lucas, Los Cabos, Baja California Sur, Mexico

Playa El Faro Viejo (The Old Lighthouse Beach) - Km. 126.5 - no longer accessible.
El Faro Viejo, The Old Lighthouse, is somewhat inaccessible, but worth effort. Four wheel (ATV's) All Terrain Vehicles are no longer permitted for outings to this impressive spot.

Editor's Note: As of January 2008 the access road to this beach and El Faro Viejo (old light house) has been chained off. There is a guard at the entrance gate advising that the original access road is now private property. Most of this area is undergoing some sort of development. We will continue to look for an access point for this section of beach.

The photos on this page were taken in 1990 when it was still possilbe to ride horses on this beach.

The following is part of our previous description that is now no longer accurate regarding the access.

Decades ago a mechanized light house replaced the venerable structure. Towering sand dunes built by often powerful winds off the Pacific Ocean offer sweeping vistas. Stop at the top of the hill, the view is spectacular. To proceed any further you will need an ATV, a specialized dune buggy or horses, as the sand is soft and the dunes very steep. There is a road leading to this beach that can be traveled by a passenger car.
