  • Palmilla is a truly beautiful, quiet and safe beach, very familiar accounts with all the services, a turquoise sea with fish swimming to your around, its a little lumpy sand in some parts, something that does not diminish its beauty, indeed visit this beach not miss it! !!!!!!!!

  • Playa Palmilla is an iconic site in the region. The beach is public, thanks to the battle together and organized fishing cooperatives and civil society fought against the voracious tourism developers seeking to privatise this public space so beautiful and visited by local, national, and people all over the world. And it is not for less, Palmilla is a small Cove that has calm water to swim and enjoy a refreshing swim in the sea. Waters protected by Rocky points that are at their ends, are popular with swimmers and fishermen. It is very easy to reach, has access from the road one or tourist corridor Los Cabos. Although the beach has infrastructure for visitors (bathrooms and trash cans, to name a few) I recommend you to take their waste after their visit to minimize the impact of them on the beach. If you smoke, please, do not throw your cigarette butts in the sand, affected many creatures that depend on this ecosystem to live.
