The water was awesome. However, jet skiers and water taxis do not respect the outlines and came too close to swimmers. The vendors on the beach are overwhelming. Hard to relax when you have someone coming to you every two minutes trying to sell you something. I wouldn't not go again.

This was the best beach for snorkeling in cabo. They had a wonderful life guard who helped my Mom out by giving her his umbrella when she got too hot in the sun. Very great experience.

This is a beautiful sandy beach that is great for body surfing and swimming. Had a great time with our kids. Looks like a great place to snorkel, too. Free parking.

Pros: *This is likely Cabo's best beach--but by no means one of the best beaches ever. It's not the Caribbean. *It's a pro and con that there's no vendors. It's peaceful, but you have to pack snacks and drinks because there is nothing to purchase nearby. *It is easy to find taxis (big yellow vans) to take you back to... More

Amazing beach, awesome snorkeling, clean and safe parking lot. Just a few miles from the center of town, and well worth the trip. Especially if you want a break from the beach peddlers.

This is a great area to snorkel but it definitely gets choppy in the afternoon. If you are inexperienced or not a great swimmer then go in the morning. You will see lots of puffer, surgeon fish, sergeant majors, etc. If you rent a car, just drive here yourself - there's no fee for parking and there is a nice... More

If you're in the Los Cabos area, you really need to visit Chileno Beach. The parking lot is off the main highway and the beach is a relatively short walk from there. The water is clean and clear, and perfect for snorkeling. If you like to fish, bring your gear. Fishing license isn't required if fishing from the shore.

We like it here. Snorkeling is among the many activities you may enjoy. The only draw back is that you will encounter lots of locals at this beach! In short, we enjoyed our time here.
