“Balandra in july”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

The most beautiful beach in La Paz. Fine sand, gentle breezes, umbrellas, snacks from vendors make for a great experience.

“Beautiful and (potentially) dangerous”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

I've never seen a beach completely surrounded by mountains like this and the water is warm and shallow. I definitely recommend going; however, if you are going to do a lot of walking in the water you should wear shoes or shuffle your feet. My husband walked all the way to the other side and got stung by a stingray. It took him 20 minutes to get back and he was bleeding and in a lot of pain. As others have recommended, go see Manuel if this happens to you and also go to the clinic for antibiotics. We heard that it was mating season when we were there (May) and therefore, they were more numerous than usual.
