“Great cove to snorkel and kayak into - but get there early!”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

A lot of the tour boats have unfortunately found this beautiful, normally quiet beach and cove...but if you get there before lunch to do your snorkeling, you won't be disappointed. We've gone for the past two years and loved it both times. If you're driving, it's easy access with signage on the highway. You'll need to bring all your supplies (food, drinks, blankets, etc.) and there is no restroom.

“Small, clean and beautiful”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

This is perfect for a day of relax, snorkeling, and a lot of sun. The landscape are great and a lot of fishes are visible close to the beach. Let's go there early in the morning because around noon a lot of boat come in and ruin the natural beauty

“Incredible!”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

Absolutely incredible! We always visit this spectacular location. We stay for around an hour which for us is perfect. Sometimes we come by taxi, and also by boat - see our Cabomagic review - and enjoy both arrivals. Recommend 'water' shoes for walking on hot sand and to protect feet in the water too from rocks.

“Beautiful secluded beach”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

the bay was spectacular. spent a great afternoon at this beach. easy access from the highway. parked right in front of the beach as others had recommended. rented a few umbrellas and felt we had the beach to ourselves. my 3 kids (8, 10, 14yrs) had fun snorkeling. we found more fish on the south side (far right) side of the beach near the rocks. if you had one day and wanted to go snorkeling, i would recommend chileno beach as i felt the water as not as clear as chileno.
