When we arrived at this beach, around 11am, it was deserted except for a few locals.
There were some RVs at the far end of the beach.
We went in search of a washroom but the only one we could see was inside the closed restaurant.
We sat on the wooden loungers for an hour and read, then the restaurant and beach bar opened up at noon.
We had a drink and snack there, then headed back into La Paz.
It may just have been an unlucky day for us, but we were bothered by a lot of flies there too.
It was quite a way out of La Paz town and cost us about $300 Mx return in an Uber, so from now on we will stick to our closest beach, Playa El Coromuel, that we much prefer.

We took the Play bus from the bus depot to Pichalingue beach for 100 pesos each round trip. Grat way to get there if you dont have a car. The beach has 2 restaurants on one end and people campin in their RVs at the other, and in between is a roped off swimming area and a deserted beach club, with lot of free lounge chairs to use. When we were here , there were only 3 other couples... very relaxing day. We were told that theres good snorkeling one the rocky end of the bay, but didn't heck it out.

The beach is absolutely stunning. We enjoyed the stunning view and the crystal clear water. The beach was clean and perfect to hang out at with our family of a one year old & three teenagers. Great place for swimming and relaxing. We did get drinks at the restaurant & they were pretty watery and mediocre at best. I recommend the beach, but not the restaurant.

This is a very beautiful, calm and cool beach. We came here while we waited for the ferry to depart. The place is great, but keep in mind there are no palapas, trees or any type of shade. The only way not to be directly on the sun is by bringing your own things, or eating/drinking on one of the restaurants on the beach.

The beach is a secluded spot with a Palapa restaurant for dining in the sand. It's a nice place to hit the beach and catch the sunset. The restaurant is expensive and well regarded amongst the locals this was a bad day. My wife and I planned a big dinner out to Pichilingue to have the renowned seafood and we both got sick for two days. We had mediocre margs, lobster tacos, ceviche, and baked clams; one of the above made us sick. You'd think a place with $30 tacos would be cleaner, we were let down tremendously.

If you're looking for an authenic Mexican beach that locals flock to, that is not overrun by tourists, this beach is for you. Very comfortable feel, plenty of beach to walk and explore, drinks, food and nice shallow / warm water to wade in. So relaxing, you don't want to leave

Very peaceful location. Had ice cold beers and watched the sunset under a huge palapa. Water was tranquil and colorful. Had the feel of "old" Mexico without the high rise hotels, loud music and beach vendors. Easy access from town.

Beautuful wide sand beach. Quite a few campers but lots of room to spread out. Bring a wrap as it was quite windy making it seem chilly.
