We really enjoyed our trip to Chileno Beach, but make sure you go earlier in the day or after the tourist boats have left in the afternoon (4 ish). Bring along some frozen peas to attract the large school of colorful fish. It's a larger, open rocky area with a lot of locals and tourists visiting. Bring an umbrella for... More

Nice beach. Best features: - NO beach vendors allowed. So no one is selling you trinkets all day. - Nice rocks to climb on along the water's edge for kids. - The area is known for snorkling but you must go early morning or the waves will kick up too much sand and lower visibility. That was the case for... More

Less crazy beach than Medano and a good place to snorkel and swim. Not many facilities or places to eat though.

We arrived via Cabo Adventures and they had scooters which made getting around snorkeling faster. I saw so many fish and I especially liked the angel fish and the blue puffer fish.

How do you review a natural area? This is a popular spot to take snorklers, and has become polluted and murky. There are other spots you could go.

Took the public bus from San Lucas to Chileno. It was 48 pesos (each way) for 2 people. I recommend sitting close to the front of the bus and also mentioning to the driver you're going to Chileno Bay. It's a stop-as-needed bus with no official stops. The bay itself is great. Lots of fish. The water was a bit... More

It's a good place to swim in the ocean. There's a reef for anyone who likes to snorkel with a good variety of fish to see. Some of the tour boats stop there for just that reason. The only downfall is that there is no public washrooms.

We hired a taxi from San Jose del Cabo and visited this beach for a few hours. It's very clean for a public beach and the water was nice and clear. There was an abundance of fish if you want to snorkel. Make sure you have a cab booked to pick you up, we waited for over an hour in... More

Yes, there was construction in the distance but it didn't really bother us. The water is beautiful, the sand is clean, there are lifeguards, porto potties, someone to rent beach umbrellas from and snorkling. There isn't anywhere to eat or drink so bring your own.
