Chileno Beach Tours

10 reviews
Protected by the Chileno Bay, the waters at Chileno Beach are calm, warm, and clear, and the reefs just offshore act as a home to an abundance of sea life. The beach, considered one of Los Cabos’ best-kept secrets, mimics the feel of a Caribbean beach. Sun-seekers will enjoy the seclusion and the top-notch snorkeling opportunities. 

The Basics
Chileno Beach is a popular destination for those looking to do a bit of underwater exploration or just relax on the sunny shores of a secluded spot. Remember, though, that there are few accommodations to be found here (aside from restrooms), so if you’re planning on making the trek to Chileno Beach on your own, pack food and snorkeling gear. Tours to the area, which include sailing, snorkeling, and kayaking excursions, typically supply the equipment.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Unlike other Los Cabos beaches, Chileno doesn’t have bars and restaurants, so come prepared with snacks and drinks.
  • This beach is considered an excellent spot for snorkeling, with plenty of colorful fish.
  • Since its waters are calm, the beach is ideal for families with young kids. 

How to Get There
Chileno Beach, located just off Los Cabos’ tourist corridor, is accessible by bus from both Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo (tell the driver to drop you off at Bahia Chileno). From the bus stop, it’s about a half-mile walk down to the beach. If you decide to rent a car and drive, there’s an ample amount of free parking. Most sailing and snorkeling tours depart from the Cabo San Lucas marina.

When to Get There
There are no set hours of operation at Chileno Beach, but arrive early in the morning to beat the crowds. Like most beaches, Chileno is a popular spot for locals on the weekends and is less busy during the week. Also, during whale-watching season, which takes place from December to April, you might be able to hear a humpback whale singing if you listen closely while underwater. 

Nearby Santa Maria Cove
Another favorite spot for snorkeling, Santa Maria Beach boasts pristine white sands and similar conditions to Chileno; many tours combine the two locations since they’re just around the bend from each other, and some scuba-diving excursions include dives at both. The areas are home to sea turtles, some species of moray eels, starfish, sea fans, sea urchins, sea horses, and sponges.

Practical Info

Chileno Beach is located just west of the Hotel Cabo San Lucas. Parking is free, but amenities are slim.
