A must see in Cabo

Great place to hang out in the beach, no vendors so you have to bring everything. Taxi can take back to hotel, great snorkeling too!

Great place to go and not be bothered by vendors. Peaceful quite and clean. Need to take some towels, umbrellas, food and water. Can't beat it and close to San Jose.

This is a beautiful beach for swimming. Swimming is not permitted in most areas due to the strong undertow of the ocean but this area is great, worth visit.

Nice beach, clean and well maintained. Lots of local families with children all having a nice day. Rocks offshore break up the large waves to allow for safe swimming.

Playa Palmilla is my favorite beach in San Jose del Cabo. Flanked mainly with stunning villas, there is not a bustling resort crowd here. Palmilla is a perfect place for a leisurely walk, and is picture-perfect to boot. Although it is swimmable, I would still consider your skill as the waves and tides can be quite strong. With not much... More
