This is a good choice of the beaches for the area however in comparison to other beaches in Mexico it is average. The sand is a bit coarse and you could not make a sand castle with this if you wanted to. This is one of the few beaches you can go into the water here. However there still was... More

This little bay has some great snorkeling for being such a short bus ride from either Cabo San Lucas or San Jose del Cabo. 20 feet from the beach are excellent reefs loaded with fish. Just watch out that they don't have the white flag out indicating jellyfish infestation. We ignored it at our peril. Sleepless nights of itching!

Skip the charters-drive up the coast 8 miles and rent equipment from the local guy set up at the parking lot-More time in the water on a really nice beach-stay to the right by the rocks and there are fish galore--Enjoy

What a great place to Snorkel! The beach isn't too busy and there is a fresh water outdoor shower for when you get out the salt water. There are hundreds of fish so snorkeling is definitely something you want to do while you are there!

It is a tremendous locals beach. You can see about 30 varieties of fish less than 100 feet off the shore in the rocks on the right. When we were there, there was lots of small jelly fish. It feels like a small electrical shock when they sting and leaves marks about 1/8" size. They didn't hurt for long. Someone... More

Chileno is a wonderful beach with calm waters teaming with beautiful creatures. A huge variety of animals including dazzling fish, mantras, eels and an occasional whale make the experience eye opening. This is no longer the out of the way stash unfortunately as resort construction now surrounds the beach. Access is becoming very easy with a now under construction boardwalk... More

Overall, Chileno is a great spot to spend a few hours soaking up the sun. It's a bit more crowded than some of the other beaches we went to and there's definitely a lot of development happening in the immediate area which can be overwhelming if you're looking for serenity.

My family enjoys visiting this beach. The water is calm for swimming. There are tons of fish to see in just knee deep water. My kids love to bring crackers and feed the fish.

We stay at the Posada and walk up to the Mega and jump on a local bus(cheap) and tell the driver we want to go to Chileno and they stop and you just walk down. We are a a small back pack for our snorkel gear and a towels, a few drinks and water. There is NO SHADE, so be... More
