Just a really safe beach to swim at, with no hassle or hassle from vendors. It's a bit out of the way, easy to get to though if you have a car. Palmilla is a great place if you... read more

Just a really safe beach to swim at, with no hassle or hassle from vendors. It's a bit out of the way, easy to get to though if you have a car. Palmilla is a great place if you like the life style of the rich and famous! Beautiful grounds and clean beach. Taxis are available. Bit of a long... More

Beautiful beach. Out houses are very dirty and a walk. No place to eat or drink on the beach. Take your own cooler for drinks and bring your own food and snacks. You can rent lounge chairs paddle boards and kayaks which was fun. We made sand chairs and threw towels over them.

Beautiful beach! Felt very safe. Paid $20 for an umbrella for all day and a paddle board for an hour. They gutted freshly caught fish right there on the beach, which was fun to watch (especially once the pelicans lined up for scraps!). Water felt great and was swimmable. Easily got a taxi back to our hotel afterwards. One thing-bring... More

Horrible trip! Do not waste your $$ Go to Medano Beach and take a water taxi. Cheaper. Long boat ride to the arch. They promised us snorkeling after and it was so crowded. The sea was rough and cloudy and no step ladders or life jackets around. I think this operation is illegal good thing we are good swimmers!!!!

This is the start of the beach "Corridor", which goes all the way to Cabo San Lucas. The beach is gorgeous but some places are a bit rocky.
