The beach is naturally beautiful and easy to get too, but depending on what time of the day you go it will be not fun to breath with all the fumes from the boats that bring all the snorkelers.

I went here with my family which included a 9 year old and almost 4 year old. My 9 yr old enjoyed body surfing and my 4 yr old loved the surf. The surf would pull you into the waves and I really had to hold onto my 4 yr old - he thought it was hilarious. My 9 year... More

This beach was gorgeous. We snorkeled there but it was a choppy day so not the best experience but the location is amazing. Nice staff on snorkeling boat.

Chileno Bay is always a favorite. It's a quiet and peaceful beach. I highly recommend going early in the morning. It's cooler and the crowds are much smaller. As you face the ocean, the best area to snorkel in on the right side. There is an abundance of fish. I recommend taking some bread to feed the fish. They will... More

We went on a catamaran tour, and I think that the let us go a little too far from where any fish would be, so I didnt get to see that many fish while i was in the water. It's pretty busy with all the tours that stop here.

This was a great beach to spend a few hours. There is ample free parking and a short walk to the sand. Bring drinks/snacks with you. The water is pleasantly warm and very clear.

Very hot the day we went! Umbrella a must! Toilets are located on the beach! No food vendors so take your own! Swimming good but watch for the undertones they are very strong. Snorkeling good but a little way out. Over all a very nice beach and free parking

We love to snorkel and Chileno Bay is a good place to do it. Over the years, it has changed somewhat..but it still is reliably a safe place to enter the water and snorkel and has a bit (just a bit) of shade..provided by palapa umbrellas or perhaps the shade from rocks on one end of the beach.. but this...

Chileno Beach was once the favorite among tourist and locals alike. The gentle bay, the palm shade, and the snorkeling could not be beat. However, Hurricane Odile and investors have done their best to make this beach difficult to enter and to enjoy. It is still beautiful but not the beach we visited twenty years ago.
