Palmilla Beach (Playa Palmilla)

San José del Cabo, Baja California Sur, 23410

The basics

A long stretch of sand ensures there is usually plenty of room to spread out on Palmilla Beach, which is sandwiched between turquoise water and a line of resorts. Unlike popular Playa de Amor, you don’t need a boat to get here, making this a popular option for independent travelers. The top activities here take advantage of all that calm, clear water: think paddle boarding, swimming, snorkeling, and sand-castle building for visitors of all ages.

When to get there

Since this popular beach gets busy towards midday, arriving before 10am is the best way to ensure a prime sunbathing spot. (The limited fixed palapas get snatched up first thing.) If you’re looking for the best light for photography, try sunrise, as the east-facing beach catches some of the day’s first rays.

Snorkeling at Palmilla Beach

Palmilla Beach offers snorkeling right off the beach, featuring bright tropical fish, a small reef, and protected water. Angel fish, puffer fish, and eels tend to cluster near the rocks, so take care when swimming nearby, especially on windy or wavy days. Snorkels, masks, and fins can be rented on-site.
