Looking for a beach not filled with spring breakers? This is your beach. Chileno beach (Playa Chileno) has it all, minus the loud party goers. It’s located about 14 kilometers (9 miles) northeast of Cabo San Lucas along the infamous Corridor highway.
While the majority of people head straight for Medano beach, this beach tends to hold more of the local crowd and select tourists. Due to this, this beach tends to be cleaner and is in fact, regularly known as one of the cleanest beaches in Mexico.
Chileno beach (or some call it Chileno Bay) is proud to hold a world-renowned eco-label from the Blue Flag program. In order for a destination/location to hold this prestigious award, a variety of environmental, educational, safety-related and access related criteria must not only be met, but maintained as well.
If you’re not staying at the Chileno Bay Resort, you will need to come prepared with your own food and drinks, and rely on the public facilities – which are a great addition compared to the standard hole in the ground at some other remote beaches.
Chileno beach is very easy to get to (just look out for signs around km 14) but if you don’t have a car with you, a bus is your next best choice. While the beach is usually open 24 hours a day, some recommend arriving prior to 10 am to ensure getting a solid spot. The beach can fill up quickly on certain weekends and holidays.
