This beach is pristine and beautiful! No vendors bothering you, just beautiful sand and water. Clean clean clean! My husband and daughters went snorkeling and saw angel fish, puffer fish and other various colorful fish. Our favorite beach. So happy we found it!

This is a good family beach. You can swim and snorkel here without being pulled out to sea. The beach is clean and located near a resort where you can use the bathroom by acting like you belong there.

very relaxing beach, not bothered by beach vendors. great family place, shade provided by the natural grass palapas. Not sure if food or beverages were available so we packed our own cooler of goodies. moderate 1k walk from the bus stop along shaded well groomed street.

Cabo is notorious for it's fierce undertows. This is a Blu flag beach which means it is cared for very well and is safe for family activities. It is very beautiful and i would consider staying for an extended period.

We frequent Cabo many times a year and this is my favorite beach. It goes on forever and you can swim there unlike most of Cabo. It's a hidden gem. Plan on bringing a picnic lunch and an umbrella as the palapas get snatched up early. You can rent paddle boards and kayaks here as well as small motor boats... More

This is a lovely spot. Quiet, sort of off the beaten path, good for swimming, just a vendor or two, boards and kayaks to rent and some palapas to find some shade under.

My husband and I spent a late morning and early afternoon on a Sunday at Playa Palmilla. It is a relatively small beach, clean and easily accessible from the highway. I recommend bringing a cooler with drinks and snacks, and to get there early. The space fills up quickly after 12:00 noon.

Thanks to our concierge from Cabo San Lucas Villas, we had an attendant set up umbrellas and a tent for us. He filled a cooler of adult beverages and sandwiches, then carried everything to the beach for us. He set us up in a private area of the beach where we had the entire place to ourselves. The sand, sun... More

Just up the Pacific Coast, between desert dunes and ocean rock formations, you can enjoy a magnificent sunrise on the Palmilla Beach, listening the waves spectacularly breaking along the shore with a powerful metallic sound, in a continuous eye-catching dance.

It is great during the week days when the locals are working, it gets a lot of people there during the weekends since this is one of the few beaches where the currents are not dangerous in the Cabo area.
