This might be one of the finest beaches I've ever been, it's like a huge pond with crystal water.. be careful, there could be sting rays, so be sure to shuffle your feet while walking in it... otherwise the place is so relaxing and quiet, no crowded as other beaches.

If you are in La Paz, a stop at Balandra Beach is a must! You can wade to each beach and the water is crystal clear! Be sure to shuffle your feet though because there are sting rays. This is an absolutely beautiful and peaceful place. Not crowded either!

A beautiful beach with gradually sloping sand and clear water. Keep an eye on your car as there have been some thefts from cars.

Amazing, amazing beach! Words can't describe how beautiful this beach is -- it is a full day activity. If you are in Cabo -- you must go here!

Do watch out for sting rays. DO the Baja Shuffle when in the water. The turquoise of the water is mind boggling. There is a stand that sells water and snacks. otherwise it is pristine but without restaurants.
