La Paz Beach

If you’re considering planning on where to go for your next beach vacation, look no further. La Paz, Mexico, which is located on the Baja Peninsula, is home to some of North America’s most splendid beaches. Whether you are looking for a public spot, a secluded getaway or some waterfront entertainment, La Paz is the place for you.

Here are the top 5 beaches in La Paz, Mexico:

1. Ensenada Grande on Isla Espirito Santo

Considered as the most unique beach experience in La Paz, Ensenada Grande on Isla Espirito Santo is only accessible by boat. Ensenada Grande offers the most private beach experience in La Paz and is less than an hour boat ride from the city. The Travel Magazine has dubbed Ensendada Grande as “absurdly beautiful” and swimming in its water is like “swimming in a bottle of Curacao.” Prepare yourself for 14 miles of crystal clear water, sandy beaches and pure tranquility.

2. Playa el Tecolote

Just 26km from La Paz and arguably the most beautiful beach in La Paz, Mexico, Playa el Tecolote is the largest as well as most visited beach in the city. This beach offers up pristine blue waters, a white sandy stretch of beach, elegant restaurants and Palapa rentals. If this isn’t enough for you, Playa el Tecolote provides a serene view of Isla Espiritu Santo. If you’re looking for some fun and action, feel free to rent a ski-doo or go for a ride on a banana boat. Playa el Tecolote has something to offer to all beach-goers.

3. Playa Balandra

Playa Balandra is a less traveled beach that is known for its attractive views and landscape. Located just 12 miles from downtown La Paz, Playa Balandra is truly a one of a kind place. With a sandbar that spans from one side of the bay to the other, you can simply just wade your way to the other side. The water at Playa Balandra is always warm and sheltered from the waves of the Pacific Ocean. Although, if you are planning to visit Playa Balandra be sure to pack food and beverage for the day because amenities are a scarcity.

4. Playa el Tesoro

Playa el Tesoro is a beautiful, relaxing and secluded beach located just 8 miles out of town on the Pichilingue Highway. This beach offers palapa-shaded restaurants and bars that serve up some La Paz’s most exquisite food and beverage. Playa el Tesoro is also a great place to pack your own lunch and lounge out for the day on a beach chair. The shallow waters and calm winds also make it a great place to bring the kids to play freely.

5. Playa el Coromel

Playa el Coromel is located just 5 miles from the town of La Paz and is considered to be one of the gems of the Baja. In fact, Playa el Coromel is a local favorite and the first of the beaches you will hit when headed north of town. The amenities at Playa el Coromel include a water slide, restaurants, bars, and many palapas.




If you’re planning a night out in La Paz, look no further!  Whether looking for a casual drink and some jazz, a energetic karaoke bar, or a wild night of club and bar hopping, you’ve got your pick with some great establishments.

La Casa de Villa: It’s the “chic” club in town.  Prices are reasonable and the service is good, except for when is crowded, in that case, you’re better off going to the bar and ordering yourself. The best way to get a table is to order a bottle (rum, whisky, vodka).  Open from Thursday through Sunday, but the best day is Saturday. Dress Code formal, the security guards at the entrance won´t let you in if you’re not dressed up, except if you’re foreigner, in that case you can wear shorts and tennis shoes. NO SANDALS or Tank tops

  • Music- Top hits, English and Spanish, pop, rock, R&B, hip hop
  • Ages- 18 – 35 (sometimes a little younger, 16, 17)
  • Address- Alvaro Obregon and 16 de Septiembre. Right on the malecon, in front of the central kiosk

The Jungle Bar: Bar during the day and club at night. During the day it’s pretty lonely, you´ll see a couple of tourists but that’s it. At night, it is crowded. There´s a VIP section that´s much more comfortable than the rest of the place. The decor is literally a jungle, paintings of lions, zebras, monkeys, riddled with neon lights. The service is not the best, unless you´re in the VIP section.  The best way to get a drink is to go straight to the bar and tip the bartender. Dress code is casual, you can dress up or use flip flops. The majority of the crowd seem to be marine biologists and soft core rockers. There’s a biker night once a month, so all the Harley Davidson guys gather up and party there.

  • Music- Hits of the moment English & Spanish, pop, rock, R&B, hip hop and mostly Latin rock. Sometimes there’s a live band, but it is not a regular thing.
  • Ages- 18 – 35 (sometimes a little younger, 16, 17)
  • Address- Alvaro Obregon and 16 de Septiembre. Right on the malecon.

Las Varitas: Oldest club in town. Almost dedicated 100% to Latin rock, but they have different events every day of the week, so the music depends on that. Lady’s night on Friday is now a tradition, free drinks for girls and a striptease show, guys are allowed in after 11 pm. Las Varitas brings some of the best rock concerts in town with both national and international bands. It’s the club that stays open the latest in town, so usually everybody ends up there after a little bar hopping.

  • Music- Latin Rock
  • Ages- 25-45+
  • Address- Calle Independencia 111. 100 mts above the malecon on the bus station street
