Lovely beach with places for food, rentals and drinks, however, if the wind is blowing out of the North this beach gets blown out. So, good place to visit on a less windy day.

Tranquil Beach and a VERY GOOD beachside restaurant which has the BEST Chocolate Clams in the world! Tacos and whole fish are awesome as well Those not in the know these are Brown Shelled clams which you can eat raw ( with Habenero sauce) or baked

The large restaurant with the sandy floor also turned out to be one of our favourites in this area. We shared a fried whole fish and it was delicious. This beach although looked like it was too close to the Ferry terminal action turned out to be one of the best for snorkelling. Off to the right hand side if... More

Had a great time there. Ate some great food and the beach is inviting. Can't wait to return. The water is turquoise and very child friendly.

Discovered this place almost accidentally. Talk about eating on the beach under a thatched roof and sand floor. So good we went back the next day for lunch. Really recommend the clams. They have a pen on the beach where the divers put the clams and when you order them, they go out and get them out of the pen.... More

Pichiligue Beach is another great beach. La Paz is blessed with great beaches outside the city that are really easy to get to and provide visitors with everything that one would need for a great day at the beach. Here we have really good snorkelling, a beautiful view, superb swimming in warm water and some really competent restaurants. In fact... More

The water at Playa Pichilingue is picture perfect. The beach is just on the other side of the ferry station and is fairly close to La Paz itself. My husband sat at one f the palapa-roofed restaurants while I snorkeled across the bay. The food at the restaurant looked very good-I saw a man walk into the kitchen carrying a... More
