Balandra Beach, La Paz

(4.8/5 based on 1,300+ 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.
