El Arco is a defining symbol of the area. It is a rock formation in the shape of an arch that was formed by the erosion of the waves during thousands of years. The most curious phenomenon is what takes place on this site. During some years, a beach is formed which is called ‘Lover’s Beach’, and during other years, due to tide conditions it disappears back into the sea. There are tours to visit and photograph El Arco, that leave from the marina or the Playa El Medano.
