A little bit of rough waters. Excellent viewing along the shore/rocks of marine tropical fish. Pebble beach and Family friends.

This is the second time I've visited Chileno Beach and it was even more amazing this year. I'm smarter though and have recommendations: bring a beach chair and snorkeling mask. There is no place (yet) to rent chairs or snorkeling equipment so make a stop at WalMart before you go to Chileno Beach. This is a popular snorkeling destination but... More

Went out on the Cabo Rey snorkel tour. So awesome food and open bar. Very reasonable and great staff, the DJ kept the party going. The snorkeling was amazing at Chileno with beautiful fish and the water was very clear .

Take a sunshade and lawn chair, if possible. Perfect day. Good for all ages. Not far from town. Same beach area cruise ship guests pay lots of $$$ to go to but easy access with a rental car. They had closed on the day of the supermoon because of the tides/waves so we went a few days later and it... More

We spent about 4 hours at Chileno beach. We rented lawn chairs and snorkeling gear from our resort and bought a styrofoam cooler from a local OXXO convenience store. Warning to those used to "sand" beaches.....this beach is more small pebbles and can be hard on tender feet. The beach and surroundings are clean with plenty of trash receptacles. There... More

Just wade in up to your chest and fish swim right around you. Take snorkels. We found this beach on one of our last days and wish we knew about it sooner.

this is the nicest snorkeling closest to the hotels of cabo san jose, you have to take an overpriced taxi here or the bus if you are cheap like me

We used to love a day at Chileno Bay. However, since the hurricane all of the Pappas have gone (blown) away. And no the resorts have moved in and crowded out the natural beach. I would go to Playa Santa Maria instead.

Im sure on a day that was not as rough it would be better and it is a beautiful beach, but we had a tough time enjoying it as it was very windy the day we went. Lots of fish to see even in the rough waves so make sure to take a mask and snorkel and underwater camera if... More

Took a cruise on the Cabo Rey. It included all you can drink with a Fajitas lunch. They also had the snorkeling equipment, kayaks, and paddle boards. Great snorkeling and beautiful scenery.
