This is a great beach. So much to like---Great sand. Very scenic. Swimming, some snorkeling, minimal facilities (i.e changing room and 2 portable toilets) But, we found the beach quite noisy due to construction of new condominiums going on next door. There were lots of rock hammers, big equipment & construction sounds. :( There is swimming. Some snorkeling around the... More

We went snorkeling at Chileno Beach 3 times. That was in 2013, 2014 and 2015. We had wonderful time. Great weather. And good food.

Angel fish are new, beautiful. Unfortunately there is a resort being built right near the beach. Love the beach anyway.

I love snorkeling. But the reef is dead and the snorkel boat people chum the water to attract fish for the tourists to look at. The worst of it is the boat ride back. Americans acting badly and encouraged to do so by guides. To win a bottle of wine several women entered in a contest to get men to... More

We went snorkelling at Chileno Beach this January. As a cheaper alternative to booking the snorkel boat tours, we got to the beach by taking the local collectivo (bus) from San Jose Del Cabo and brought our own snorkel gear with us. Just like pretty much every review about Chileno Beach, the beach was beautiful, the water was safe to... More

Beautiful water, beautiful snorkelling, what an amazing reef! Totally accessible by public bus from either San Jose or Cabo San Lucas. Just ask the driver to let you off at Playa Chileno...then walk about 10 minutes down to the beach.

Signs to Chileno have not been replaced after the hurricane so you will want to get directions before you set out especially as the access road off the main highway looks like the entry to the building site for a new resort at the end of the beach. The beach is pretty in spite of the ongoing building and the... More

Nice and quiet. Clean with lots of fish, so snorkelling is great! Bring all your own things since there is nothing there. I gets very busy on the weekends with local people.

We've snorkled at Chileno Beach for years. You can walk right into the water from the beach and avoid the crowded areas near the snorkeling tour boats from Cabo San Lucas.

Very basic, post Hurricane, but since it is free, well worth it. Lots of marine life. Lots of workers around, felt safe leaving things in car. Go as early in the day as you can. Gets busy after 10AM.
