Playa el Faro Viejo – Old Lighthouse Beach
Cabo San Lucas, Los Cabos, Baja California Sur, México
Playa El Faro Viejo, The Old Lighthouse is no longer accessible. 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.
Update 2015: El Faro Viejo, the old lighthouse sits high on the dunes along the Paciific Coast of Cabo San Lucas within the Quivira Golf Course. The 7th hole is framed by El Faro Viejo, a 19th century lighthouse that also happens to be one of the oldest structure in Cabo San Lucas was founded in 1905. The old lighthouse is currently only accessible via Quivira Golf Course and Development.
Update 2021: Renovations are being made around the old lighthouse making it only accessible with a previous reservation for a guided visit in very strict hours, the entrance is via the Quivira Golf Course as the old routes via the beach are in constant surveillance by the security of the golf course.
