Playa Palmilla in San Jose del Cabo has been named a Blue Flag beach by the Blue Flag programme, which is operated under the auspices of the Foundation for Environmental Education and is headquartered in Copenhagen, Denmark. ( http://www.blueflag.global/) Parking is available in two areas. There is a protected area for swimming, an area to launch small boats and another area for nice quiet walks.
Palmilla Beach (Playa Palmilla)
It’s hard to find a better place for family fun. Swim, snorkel, or grab a book and relax under a shade palapa. During whale season, keep your eyes peeled. This is a nice spot for lazy whale watching. Near the south rocky point, you can try your hand at surf fishing. Charter a panga if you’re interested in game fishing, or just watch as the fishermen come in during the late morning. Purchase your fillets from the fishermen’s concession in the parking lot. Palmilla Beach is located off the arroyo, just outside the entrance to the One&Only Palmilla resort. Take the Palmilla exit at km 27, head south to the arroyo, and turn left. There is good parking located close to the beach.
