We usually came here to have a glass of chardonnay, a plate of almeja chocolate and a marvellous sunset in front of us. The beach is quite good also for sunbathing and swimming but the most I prefer here is during the end of the day. The restaurant Playa Pichilingue is our special place for this. Prices are probably too... More

So a couple we met at our resort told us about this restaurant they went to earlier in the week. The food sounded so amazing me had to check it out. So two days later we rent a car and drove a little over 2 hours passed La Paz to this little restaurant out in the middle of no where.... More

Pichelingue is a popular beach a few miles to the north of La Paz. There are more beautiful beaches further to the north like Balandra and it can get busy at the weekends. However,none of the others have such a marvellous restaurant right on the beach almost in the water! I would say it is defintely not the cheapest restaurant... More

Pichilingue has a real cool name. But the beach, in the context of the much better beaches nearby, is not a big deal. Shallow water, narrow strip of sand, they are okay; but across the bay is the ferry landing, uglying up the place. Just a few kilometers up the road are Balandra and Tecolote beaches, much, much better. So... More

Lovely beach with nice snorkeling at the far end....just hide your belongings well in the rocks before going out. Bus service from La Paz to the beach is regular, on time, and inexpensive.

I almost hate to review this as I don't want it over run by tourists but it really is a beautiful drive and beautiful beaches. Water is bath-warm and pristine. There's nothing I don't love about Mexican culture so it's going to be a luv-review.

We were told to go to the restaurant there to eat the Chocolata clams, so that's what we did. The beach did not look enticing at all, although it was chilly that day. Just not my style.
