Chileno Beach, Cabo San Lucas

4.4
#2 of 9 in Beaches in Cabo San Lucas
Discover Chileno Beach, a beautiful, clean, white sand beach that sits off the beaten track. If you’re new to snorkeling or are teaching children, this makes a great place to start, with its calm waters and lifeguard on duty. Explore a bay filled with diverse tropical fish, which have been tamed by human interaction, or explore the rocky outcrops in the periphery, looking for crabs and snails. Consider bringing some snacks, plenty of water, some water shoes, and your own shade. Also, consider visiting on a weekday, as the fairly small beach can get busy during the weekend. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Cabo San Lucas holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Chileno Beach and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

Where to stay in Cabo San Lucas

Accommodations in Cabo San fall into two categories--those with easy beach access and those with a view. If you're mostly interested in swimming or diving, head to the neighborhood of El Medano Ejidal, where you can choose from a smorgasbord of luxury beach resorts and mid-range hotels. To take advantage of the area's dramatic scenery, look south to the cliff-top neighborhood of Pedregal, home to countless private rentals. For something more budget-friendly, check the streets in the city center, where the lack of sea views will be compensated with easy access to the city's best nightlife.
