Balandra Bay, about 30 minutes north of La Paz, is one of the most beautiful beaches in Mexico. Although Balandra is located on the eastern side of the Baja Peninsula, it actually faces west, providing visitors with stunning sunset views across it’s shallow waters. When the tide is low, you can walk all the way across this calm, sandy bay, making it a perfect place for young and old alike.
Thanks to the efforts of the citizens and government of La Paz, Balandra Bay remains natural and unspoiled. In 2012, the Mexican government designated it an Area of Flora and Fauna Protection, ensuring that Balandra beach will remain a popular destination for generations to come.
