Balandra Beach, La Paz
(4.8/5 based on 1,200+ reviews on the web)
Step onto the otherworldly shore of Balandra Beach. Enjoy views of the striking blue waters set against the desolate and dramatic landscape, highlighted by beautiful rock formations and soft white sands. With shallow waters stretching out well beyond the shore, the beach offers swimming conditions suitable for even the youngest members of the family. The remote beach has little in the way of amenities, so bring plenty of water and food for a picnic, as well as some bug spray and a camera. Plan to visit Balandra Beach and other customer-reviewed, writer-recommended La Paz attractions using our La Paz itinerary builder.

  • Beach beautiful, meticulous, lonely (weekdays) you will find. It is very quiet. I had the opportunity to camp and it is very safe. That Yes carries everything because there is absolutely nothing, only a small set of 11 to 18 hours selling enough but not much. A MUST that all Mexican traveler should have in their repertoire of places to visit.

  • Very good place if you want to chill and also if you have small children. Protected from wind and big waves... always a mellow place to visit. 
  • A very nice beach and water. The cove is protected. Not too far from town. We will be going back at a warmer time of year. You could walk a long ways
