Just next to the road and very noisy. The cars can get into the beach and that's horrible. There were various cars with very loud music.

Maybe we were there at a bad time. I didn't find anything unusual about the place. My advice?....go to the city..La Paz.

Don't let the nearby ferry port fool you. The north side of the bay has great snorkeling along some surprisingly intact and beautiful coral. It's the closest beach to La Paz, so it's a popular place for picnics - don't expect a clean beach.

The restaurant is right on the beach. You can almost have your feet in the water when it is high tide. The wait staff was excellent. The food was good and the prices were in the average range. I would recommend this restaurant.

One thing about this place was that it seemed that it was mostly locals. Nothing wrong with that, but we felt out of place. We left and went to Balandra, which was cleaner and nicer.

We took the La Paz tour and ended up at this beautiful beach. We had lunch at one of the restaurants, some great seafood, and took in the nice views. Recommended!

It is about 10 miles north of La Paz, not hard to locate . We stopped first at playa Tesoro, super shallow water.
