It is perfect has ombrellas free of charge but limited so don't arrive after 10:00am. Is a beach with a natural reef so full of beautiful fishes. Try not to go on sunday because there will be a lot of families and ti is very cahotic

Best snorkel spot I think. If you come by a tour you'll have to swim quite a ways to the snorkel spot. Palapas on the beach. If you arrive by boat make sure your life vest is in working order, I cant count the times I was given a broken one. Beautiful area, lots of beach to share and rocks... More

Great beach with perfect surf. Get there early to grab a palapa, you are going to want some shade. Spread your stuff out, or it is likely that someone else will spread their's out while you are swimming. No vendors. Downside to that- you have to bring your own refreshments. Upside to that- no one is trying to sell you... More

Bring your beach chair(s), cooler and umbrella just in case the palapas are taken. During the weekend specially gets a little crowded. Great for snorkel! Listen to the waves, read a book, socialice at the beach or just enjoy the waves, Chileno is a must. A few pesos for parking. Food for sale are chips and soda and beer only.... More

This beach is nice but it doesn't have any vendors for food or even water. You have to bring your own supplies. This is more for the locals. The day we were there it was mainly local town people. But if you want to snorkel and not pay $40-60 then this is the beach you warn to go to. Near... More

We went here on a snorkeling tour. Their is a a large reef area where many different fish swim. Although the water was really choppy that day, my husband and I saw some really impressive. However, the snorkeling wasn't as good as I have seen in other parts of Mexico.

Great beach with life guard and roped swimming area. Snorkeling is further out, but you can swim there from shore. You'll see the tour companies here. There are palapas, but you have to get here early to snag one. Bring your own umbrella and snacks (no vendors). Parking is free. Bathroom on site. Perfect family beach.

this beach is Fabulous! The Palapas are good-sized and provide a LOT of shade. There is a great boardwalk and incredible access for the disabled. This beach was beyond clean and even had lifeguards on duty. (don't know if that's always the case but we WERE there on a weekday!) We happened to be there on a day when the... More

This is the place to snorkel in Cabo. If you only want to go for a short time and have no gear you should consider an outfitter trip. There are a lot of these trip available from the harbor in Cabo. If you have your own gear and a car you can stay for awhile and do it right and... More
