The untouched shores of Balandra Beach are, without a doubt, some La Paz’s most beautiful. With warm waters sheltered from the Pacific Ocean and a sandbar that stretches from one side of the bay to the other, it’s the perfect beach for swimming and wading in calm, crystal clear waters.
Because locals have worked tirelessly to prevent commercial development from ruining the natural beauty of this protected area, travelers will find few amenities on Balandra Beach. There are no accommodations, restaurants or other services here. And while this may mean visitors have to carry enough food, water and supplies for a day at the beach, it also means travelers will get to experience the breathtaking white sand wonder of one of La Paz’s last untouched beaches.
Balandra is located 12 miles outside of downtown La Paz.
