Playa Balandra

Playa Balandra Review

A rocky point shelters a clear, warm bay at Playa Balandra, 21 km (13 miles) north of La Paz. Several small coves and pristine beaches appear and disappear with the tides, but there's always a calm area where you can wade and swim. Snorkeling is fair around Balandra's south end where there's a coral reef. You may spot clams, starfish, and anemones. Kayaking and snorkeling tours usually set out from around here. If not on a tour, bring your own gear, as rentals aren't normally available. The beach has a few barbecue pits, trash cans, and palapas for shade. Camping is permitted but there are no hookups. The smallish beach gets crowded on weekends, but on a weekday morning you may have the place to yourself. Sand flies can be a nuisance here between July and October. Amenities: Lifeguard, toilets, showers, food concession, picnic tables, grills/fire pits, parking lot, camping. Best for: swimming, walking, snorkeling.
