Love the Beach but could do with out the venders! But that doesnt take away from the beauty of the sands. Always such a great place to be with such amazing views!

Pristine, clean, quiet, and spectacularly beautiful beach. Not overcrowded and an easy drive from Cabo San Lucas. We saw whales breaching just offshore.

Beautiful little beach. Go in the morning before the wind kicks up and the tourist boats arrive. Hundreds of fish - so many in fact it made my husband nervous. Saw angelfish, parrot fish, barracudas. Very cool place!

Unfortunately I cannot remember their name. But there are always guys on the beach that sell those trips. They are all well organized.

I would suggest you Goggle map it. Chileno beach is closer for you if you're staying in San Jose.and also a "very" nice place to snorkel.
