2nd time in this beach and it is just very amazing. Last time there was no people, but this time, although it was crowded, we enjoyed very much. Worth going there even if you are in Cabo.

Balandra is an absolutely amazing place. It is so peaceful and serene. It is the absolutely perfect place to spend a day. It's great for small children to play and enjoy the water safely. My 16 month old was able to wade in the water...More

It is one of the beaches I never saw before due to the good quality of water and the scenic landscaping.

Absolutely beautiful location just 30 minutes from La Paz. In May the water is still a little chilly, but warm enough to snorkel or play... floating in the rafts was too cold. If you take snorkeling equipment, walk around the point towards the right, walk...More

Balandra is by far one of my favourite beach in Mexico! It can be crowded but you can always find a spot to be on your own. It's just like paradise!!

Everyone should take the time to visit this beach. Beautiful stunning color and very shallow to walk in. Nice short drive from Hyatt Place where we stayed 20 minutes. There are no washrooms at this beach which was the only negative. Plenty of parking and...More

Hi, it depends where you want to stay. I believe there were a few smaller places on the way to this beach. But you might be better off staying at one of the many hotels along the malecon in La Paz.

We had our own car. We drove from LA to Baja. Sounds like getting a ride would be a good idea.
