Playa Pichilinque is close to the highway and when the tide goes out, it is a lot of mud! But the sand is white and the water is tuquoise, so not all is bad! There are palapas for rent and restaurant on the beach as well. I think the Esprit du Santu tours take off from this beach.

We we're coming back from Balandra beach and were a little hungry, so we decided to stop by this restaurant I can't remember the name of it, but it was on Pichilingue beach. The restaurant was facing the beach and while we waited for our food we swam a bit. We saw lots of Fishes, lots of rocks though I... More

We snorkels beyond the junk. Tires and assorted garbage underwater. Beyond that there were pockets of beauty by the rocks. Almost vignette like scenes with sealift. One would not expect good snorkelling when faced with the garbage underwater at first. But well rewarded if you go out beyond the junk.

If you are looking for a peaceful place you should come here. This beautiful beach is a must in La Paz. Far away from the noisy Cabo is, believe me, so close to heaven; this place is overwhelming. Take a beer and fresh chocolata clams beside the sea while you watch pelicans walking around or swimming beneath the waves. If... More

a quiet place to visit during the week but busy with locals on the weekend. A nice place for a meal and a drink with a great view of Espiritu Santo island.
