Pichilingue has a real cool name. But the beach, in the context of the much better beaches nearby, is not a big deal. Shallow water, narrow strip of sand, they are okay; but across the bay is the ferry landing, uglying up the place. Just...More

Lovely beach with nice snorkeling at the far end....just hide your belongings well in the rocks before going out. Bus service from La Paz to the beach is regular, on time, and inexpensive.

We went there by private yacht. Our captain ordered several dishes to share. The food was excellent.

I almost hate to review this as I don't want it over run by tourists but it really is a beautiful drive and beautiful beaches. Water is bath-warm and pristine. There's nothing I don't love about Mexican culture so it's going to be a luv-review.

We were told to go to the restaurant there to eat the Chocolata clams, so that's what we did. The beach did not look enticing at all, although it was chilly that day. Just not my style.

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Why does the location show it so far from any beach? Google maps cannot even find this beach and your map shows it in the city on a street with the same name. Very confusing!

When you arrive, you will want to take a bus from the Cruise Ship Terminal. The closest and most beautiful beaches, about 6 kms. very short drive, are Balandra and Playa El Tecolote. You will not find much nicer beaches... More
