We have visited this beach many times, and have enjoyed the warmth, the spacious nature, and terrific vistas, this area provides. Matches the beaches of Rio, without the pollution, and shoreside development.

With no chances to swim, relax yourself in this charming bay: peaceful romantic atmosphere, almost no waves, transparent water but seriously watch out from rays living camoiflaged in the sand

It is a nice beach in a bay secluded from the ocean, with great mangroves which can be visited easily by swimming or kayak. Therefore, there are hardly any waves which makes it easy to do activities like snorkeling, kayaking and SUP-boarding. The water is...More

This has to be one of the most beautiful bays I have seen in El Mar de Cortez. If you are in La Paz, this is an awsome day trip and you could include the broken rock as well in the excursion.

Absolutely fantastic. Beautiful beach and gorgeous water that you can walk around. Visiting on the weekend will bring a large crowd, but still a fantastic experience. Plenty activities as well as locals selling delicious treats.

Shallow warm water, beautiful clear and inviting. The three of us enjoyed several hours of aquamarine seas and warm surf. We walked out to the iconic "symbol" of La Paz. Bring sun screen, sunglasses, and a hat. Several of us wore shoes for the rocky...More

My favorite beach, it's like a very big pool, the best for family retreats, kids don't need to know how to swim it's so low, no rocks just sand. Lovely to visit.
