Balandra Beach, La Paz

4.8
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. With our international travel planner, La Paz attractions like Balandra Beach can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

Where to stay in La Paz

The historical center offers some surprisingly budget-friendly options, with many small hotels and pensions clustered around the cathedral and the city beach. For something more luxurious, look about 10 km (6.2 mi) north of the city center, where you can find a few beach resorts offering swimming pools and exclusive restaurants.
