Balandra Beach, La Paz

Balandra Beach is located outside of La Paz, the capital of Baja California Sur. It is a beautiful cove-like beach with shallow, heavenly blue water and smooth silky sand, one of the crown jewels of the whole Mexican coast.

Transportation options

Balandra Beach can be reached by a car ride. The trip usually lasts for 10 to 45 min, depending on the part of La Paz you are in. There is also a strong line up of buses, around 10 a day, that can take you to this location any time of the day.

What to do on the beach

Several restaurants with great food, bars, and snorkeling equipment shops are available for tourists 24 hours a day.

There are sand dunes in the water, and visitors may opt to use boats, kayaks, or even swim with them. Palapas, kayaks, and umbrellas are available for rent. In addition, due to the shallowness of the beach, people can walk all the way up to a certain distance.

There are no services on the beach, so visitors need to carry their own food, drink, and other things.
