We snorkels beyond the junk. Tires and assorted garbage underwater. Beyond that there were pockets of beauty by the rocks. Almost vignette like scenes with sealift. One would not... read more

We we're coming back from Balandra beach and were a little hungry, so we decided to stop by this restaurant I can't remember the name of it, but it was on Pichilingue beach. The restaurant was facing the beach and while we waited for our food we swam a bit. We saw lots of Fishes, lots of rocks though I... More

We snorkels beyond the junk. Tires and assorted garbage underwater. Beyond that there were pockets of beauty by the rocks. Almost vignette like scenes with sealift. One would not expect good snorkelling when faced with the garbage underwater at first. But well rewarded if you go out beyond the junk.

If you are looking for a peaceful place you should come here. This beautiful beach is a must in La Paz. Far away from the noisy Cabo is, believe me, so close to heaven; this place is overwhelming. Take a beer and fresh chocolata clams beside the sea while you watch pelicans walking around or swimming beneath the waves. If... More

a quiet place to visit during the week but busy with locals on the weekend. A nice place for a meal and a drink with a great view of Espiritu Santo island.

This beach is small but full of life. We say 4 rays jumping out of the water while they played hop scotch with each other and then landing with a resounding POP". There are lots of fish in the water to snorkel around with, too.

Excellent margaritas and almgjos chocolates not only fresh in the shell but brought up to the kitchen from the "casa chocolate" right at the waters edge where the clams are kept. Sand was smooth and white and water clear and azure blue. Excellent service and a wonderful way to spend an afternoon.
