The location empty during the week and busy on the weekends. We shared a shade building with 2 other couples as they were large and most people wanted shade. The snorkeling on the south end by the rocks was very different than any other places we have been to. The large fish (10 to 16 inches) surround you and swam... More

One of two of the best snorkel & swimming beaches in the San Jose & Cabo San Lucas corridor (Santa Maria is other one). Shade palapas available if you get there early. Bathrooms available, but no food vendors. Best snorkeling is around rocks at west side (12-20 ft depth) or near shore rocks at east end. Easy, marked access from... More

This is a nice beach but is not ideal for swimming or snorkeling, depending on the current. We went here a couple of days after the storms passed through and the water was still murky and the current was somewhat strong. I would definately check the water conditions before planning a day here to snorkel. There were lots of fish... More

This place is a hidden gem. First of all it is completely free! The beach is super clean and the sand is soft (they actually use a machine to clean and rake the sand). The palapas are huge, but you need to bring towels or chairs as none are provided. The water is crystal clear and fish are everywhere. Make... More

My husband and I took the Cabo Escape boat cruise to Chileno Beach for our snorkeling trip. The beach is gorgeous and the water is so clear...this time around we saw so many fish! We followed the guide who had food and dove down to the bottom to bring up all the fish...that was awesome, I'm not sure I've seen... More

Went to this beach since our resort was on a "closed" beach (waters too rough to get in). It was great! Very clean. Nice "huts" set up along the beach to sit under for shade. There were A LOT of fish in the water... Great for snorkeling. It was nice and laid back. The perfect afternoon.

This is a very we'll maintained, clean beach. There are quite a few palapas (Palm tree umbrella thingy?) on the beach but you need to go early to grab one. This is a great beach for snorkeling as the water is calm and there is plenty to see around the rocks. There is plenty of parking and fairly clean bathrooms.... More

We rented a car for a couple days and came here for one of them. There were plenty of places for us to put our coolers, towels, and belongings in the shade. There were mostly locals here which didnt bother us at all. The water was beautiful and there are soooo many fish, it was crazy.. Be sure to snorkel... More
