There are many beautiful beaches all over the world. Sadly, many of them are victims of their own beauty with scores of people visiting, many restaurants, businesses and people selling tacky items lining their shores. Such is not the case with Balandra. Balandra is a truly virgin beach with essentially no facilities. Perhaps that is why it has been able... More

Our son is 3, and he loves the beach and the ocean. We live in Cabo and the waves are a little too big to let him run around on the shore, but at Balandra he can. Since the water is only waist high for him, he can have a great time without having to hold my hand.

If you dont get to this beach and are in the area, you are missing out. The sand is so "fluffy" and you an climb up a hill and look down on the whole bay. I can see why this a top 10 beach in the world.

Gorgeous beach. Get there by bus from the Aguila terminal on Malecon. $83 pesos per person each way. Transport is in a shuttle van (Baja Eco). Walk around to the west to see the underwhelming mushroom rock, the beach here is quieter and nicer and you can walk up the bluffs for a view. Water is shallow but if you... More

The only thing missing from this perfection is bathrooms and food. You do have to drive a ways out of town for this one, but it's worth the drive. It's a small beach so you could easily drive by it if you're not paying attention. It's a beautiful cove, quiet, clear shallow water. Perfect for SUP. The is a vendor... More

this beach is very pretty due to atmospherical reasons the tide goes down so you can literally walk for almost an hour and water will reach up to your knees. not for swimming but I saw many couples in kayak.

I love beaches and seek out the beaches where ever I go. I have travelled from Maine to Florida and British Colombia to Cabo San Lucas. I have found many nice beaches but Balandra Beach has the white sand with turquoise colored water. It is a beautiful beach and if you go out a ways you can actually swim. I... More
