Thousands of years of natural erosion has created this three stories tall arch. The rock itself is much older than the sea! The Sea of Cortez was formed about 5 million years back when the tectonic movement started pulling Baja California away from mainland Mexico. The rocks go back more than 100 million years before that!
This beach is sandwiched between two humongous rocks (more like very big rocky hills). The name is Play del Amor, meaning Lover’s Beach. If you get down and keep walking, you will cross over to the other side and that is called Divorce Beach. And after that is the Pacific ocean. So, if the word “Pacific” was derived from Peace, you have a pretty good idea how to get there in life. Ha ha 🙂
