Casual relaxed and in the middle of August few American tourists. Very relaxed day with great views. the beach is ringed with laid back beach bars and food places. Nice to sit under the shade, have a drink and enjoy the day.

I have visited the Tecolote beach area several times and had good experiences. This recent trip I was solo and accompanied by my cab driver who directed me to a smaller building just to the right of the main palapa restaurant as you arrive in the lot. I wanted to rent a kayak, and paid 300 pesos for 3 hours... More

This beach is paradise! I felt totally safe with my two kids there age 7 and 4. Big beach so it was not crowded. Also there are no hotels on beach so don't have to put up with loud music, wet t shirt contests, drunks, etc. Remote and more pristine beach. There is maybe 2 restaurants on the beach. Water...

Great staff, average food, strong drinks. But the location makes it. A gorgeous beach, and the porch is right on the water. So lovely.

It is a long beach where you can find what you prefer: silence, people, motoscooter, kayak, trip to isla espiritu santu, restaurant, small but good bar. You can swim without problem and sometimes, if you are lucky, you can see whales from the beach. The sunset hour is something amazing. During the weekend becomes very crowded.

The drive to get here is fun and you feel like you are driving to the end of the world and then appears this beautiful beach. It's very long which helps it feel not as crowded. We were there on a Saturday. We had lunch at a restaurant there (Palapa Azul) and then had use of their lounge chairs. This... More

Beautiful beach. Great food and drinks. No one else was here! had the whole place to ourselves. Try the chocolate clams "natural". worth the drive from La Paz. Find a taxi driver to take you there for the day. You can negotiate prices with most cab drivers and he will stay and wait for you. Be sure to hit Balandra... More
