From this beach, you can see the entire stretch of San Jose. However, Chileno was better beach for snorkeling and swimming. You won't see any fish here and the current can be strong.

No fee. Arrive early, especially if you plan to head there on a weekend. Walk is not that far. Try to drive a smaller car there; the lot can get very crowded, there is no defined parking spaces and pulling out of your spot... More
