Some reviewers have downplayed this charms of El Coromel. Current limited capacity (150?) makes this a great place to hike to from the Malecon - about 40 minutes hike. You have food and drinks available, very pleasant security folks and lots to see under the water and bird life. Make time to spend 2 or 3 hours in the sun and then hike back to La Paz on the walkway that takes you past the Calavera rocks with amazing views across the bay.

Eating Chocolate was the greatest experience on this beach. La Vaquita restaurant was small but the food (clams) was great! This is a small beach and swimming may not be the best choice due to the presence of jellyfish. But the beach is not crowded and is mostly visited by locals, making it more of a quiet experience. A long pier helps if you look for sun-rising thrills.

Such a nice public beach with food, restrooms, palapas, and more. We walked to this beach after hiking Calavera and it was the perfect place to rest, get a beer, and lay on the beach. This was yet another super clean and inviting place in La Paz. It is just south of the city where the Malecon ends.

Beautiful, quiet beach equipped with palapas for shade, very clean sea.
The buildings at the back are not an ideal backdrop but having public toilets so close is quite handy and everything is kept clean and tidy, the bugainvilleas are glorious.
Winter is the low season so the beach is pretty quiet, although I can imagine that in the summer it must get very crowded, as it's the closest beach to La Paz. Last summer they inaugurated a zipline (very short, above the beach) but at the moment it does not seem to be operating.

It is impossible not to enjoy this place. I love it early morning when I´m running and I can see the swimmers practice early morning. It is a beautiful place for working out, families and more. Close to town, don´t miss it!

We three middle aged guys from London are nearing the end of a fortnight in BC.

We hired some bicycles in LP to explore the Malecon and beyond, having heard that this was the way to do it!

We cycled to the skate park at the end of the special central carriageway cycle route to the north. It looked like you could continue along the Malecon pavement so I went ahead of my friends to find this bay with a pier and some restaurants and bars. I called up my friend to bring everyone along.

We all met at the end of the pier (no cycling, ooops, but it was empty) and then made our way to a bar for a 2-4-1 margarita (100 pesos) at at Clams & Beers. These turned out to be very cheap tequila so we drank them slowly,being the only tourists in the quite empty whole bay (Friday). We cycled back just before sunset. We never stayed on the inviting beach.

The next day we went to Playa Balandra by Uber, paddled around (no swimming as so shallow), saw sunset, got rather merry, got eaten by mosquitoes and then caught the last bus back to the centre at 18:30.

Today is a slow day as a result and a short 47pesos Uber to here by 15:30 on the Sunday and found a quiet beach again. This time we were prepared for a swim and found ourselves a shady spot by a cream umbrella and red table.

We spent an hour and a half there including a swim. The temperature is a bit too cold for a lot if locals but not us Brits! It was also quite clear with a few yellow and black fish zipping around. A few locals were snorkelling.

On another review I saw that someone said it was murky water and they may as well swim iff the Malecon in town. I heard from elsewhere that the centre is near where the sewage outlets are so this is not advisable! The Coromuel beach has a blue flag, is endorsed by various bodies and the beach was remarkably devoid of litter compared to some places we have visited! A few fag ends, cable ties (from hanging up xmas decorations) and bottle tops were the occasional litter. The water was clean (unlike Todos Santos and San Lucas where the immaculate beach throws up polystyrene balls occasionally).

We were approached a few times by the waitresses from the bars offering drinks, including buckets of beer. We declined graciously.

A small open air bar was open and had a few people drinking in it which was nice but our Uber was imminent so off we went.

As the sunset got obscured by clouds (it dips behind the hills on the other side of the bay anyway) we decided to pack up early and leave before the rush. Another 50pesos Uber got us back.

Sunset is the perfect time for a walk. You can enjoy the sea breeze, and find typical Mexican restaurants.

Locals will tell you this is the closest "nice" beach to La Paz, but it is completely not the case. You are better off swimming directly off Malecon. Coromuel beach is nothing special, and water is murky and shallow. Not really interesting at all.

Coromuel is definitely a nice beach in a very convenient location very close to the city so you won't have to drive much. It was re-designed a few years ago so now it has some good looking infraestructure such as bathrooms and little commercial spots where you can buy seafood or bottled water among other things. I wouldn't recommend swiming here, not because its unsafe but there are better beaches for swiming.
