Would give it a 5 but there is a lot of building very near the beach

This beach has lots of beach glass, small islands with lots of colorful fish. The sand is almost like small pebbles - nice because it doesn't stick to you. Very pretty location... read more

This beach has lots of beach glass, small islands with lots of colorful fish. The sand is almost like small pebbles - nice because it doesn't stick to you. Very pretty location, especially if you keep your back to the construction.

Chileno is great. It's got washroom facilities, lifeguards, and some really great snorkeling. You can take a tour here for some $60 or you can bus here and walk 10 minutes for $3 or you can rent a car for $40 a day and see all sorts of things. I personally think the car option is best It's popular with... More

Chileno Beach is a popular beach for locals and tourists alike - easy access from the highway if you're driving, and ample parking. There is a huge development called VieVage going on which of course adds to the noise and takes away from the natural beauty of it. (got a spare $2.5 million for a home there?) The snorkelling is...

We came here several days, as the rest of Cabo is pretty much off-limits for swimming due to dangerous undertows and riptides. The beach has free parking and wasn't too busy on our visits so we enjoyed it a great deal. The sand in Cabo isn't great, lots of rocks on all the beaches, so bring flip flops or beach... More

We travel to Cabo a lot but only tried this beach once. Parking was sketchy. We had a hard time finding where you park. Then you sort of walk through dark bushes and pop out at it. It had nice boardwalk down to beach as well as bathrooms. It was fairly crowded but it was big enough we didn't feel... More

You can swim here for free and see more.fish than anywhere in Cabo. There is a free parking lot and the water is warm. Just try for a low wind day.

Take the Cabo Escape snorkeling cruise out to Chileno Beach. You won't regret it! Tons of fish and other sea life, coral reefs, beautiful Sea of Cortez waters.

Party is over here. The trucks and gravel have moved in and the once best kept secret in Cabo is but a memory. Snorkelling boats are there all day and it's crowded on the beach.

Playa Chileno has always been our favorite snorkelling beach when we visit the Cabo area and we were worried if the development there or Hurricane Odie had possibly changed that. There is a huge residential development going on there but there is still lots of parking and we were directed in. You need to be cautious of work trucks, etc.... More
