Best Beach in Mexico: Balandra Beach in La Paz

We visited as a guest of La Paz

Balandra Beach in La Paz Mexico

I have visited many beautiful beaches while traveling the world, but one beach clearly stood out to me as the most beautiful beach in the world, Balandra Beach. It was voted as one of the ten best beaches in Mexico by TripAdvisor, and it is clearly the #1 winner. Until visiting Balandra Beach in La Paz, Grace Bay beach in the Turks and Caicos was my favorite, but not anymore. Balandra Beach is unlike any other beach I have visited before. It is a perfectly shaped cove where visitors can walk for miles into the crystalline turquoise water without the water getting higher than your waistline.

Best Family Vacation in Mexico

While I was standing on the edge of sand looking at the water, the water would change colors every few minutes. It was magical, mystical, and a moment that I’ll never forget. I spent most of my time sitting in the water basking in the warm summer sun as small fish and rays would go swimming past. It was one of the most calming experiences that left me refreshed, relaxed and reconnected with my mind, body, and soul.

One of the highlights of my time visiting Balandra Beach was a stand-up paddle board (SUP) adventure with Baja Unexplored through the salt mangroves. I felt immersed into a magical world as I sat on my paddle board and soaked in the experience like a sponge. I never want to forget the beautiful birds flying above my head and abundant lush landscaping surrounding me as I paddled through the small canals.

When planning your visit to Balandra Beach, plan to spend the entire day at the beach. I recommend bringing towels, umbrella, picnic lunch, drinks, sunscreen, and an inflatable water tube to float on the water. You’ll also want to walk out into the water to take a photo of the famous mushroom rock. Don’t miss planning a day at Balandra Beach when planning your family vacation to La Paz, Mexico.

  1. Thank you so much for your blog postings on La Paz, it is amazing and inspiring! I live in OC and now planning on trying to make a trip happen to La Paz because of this post. How do you get to this Balandra Beach from La Paz hotels, is there hotels closer to this beach you would stay at? Also how are the beaches in front of the main hotel area for example the Hyatt? Your expertise would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
