I never want this place to be crowded so I should keep everyone away but really it's amazing! Not easy to get to. We rented a car and drove from San Jose Del Cabo. Long drive but went by fast and we would do it...More

We heard about this beach from another guest at the hotel. We recommend it. It's a state beach and they take good care of it. Go early to get a palapa, they are free to the public.

We explored all the famed Cabo swimmable beaches after hurricane Lidia and will not feel comfortable sending our kids into the water except this one. Beautiful and don't forget your snorkeling gear - no vendor here for equipment rental

It is a really nice and quaint beach with a stunning outlook for a sunset. I climbed the hill to get a better look and was totally worth the hike.

Una de las playas más bonitas que he visistado en Mexico. One of the most beautiful beaches in mexico, You might wanna go after raining season so the water level goes up.

Balandra beach has a huge expanse of sandy beach with lots of shallow water to play in. The snorkelling out around the rocks was quite good too.

Calm water, clean and everyone was friendly.. also not too deep for those that don't swim. We didn't realize to bring swimming outfits. Also you can see fish swimming

The beach of your dreams. A natural pool with no end. You should come and walk to the stone, little far but worth it!

I do recall seeing some people sleeping on that beach. It would be a great idea.
