This is the place to go with your family when visiting La Paz. The beach is long and wide. Mexican families come here with their extended family to swim, play in the sand and enjoy the view. The water here felt warmer than on the beaches near town and on Espiritu Santo. Bring your own food or order lunch and... More

It's best to come to this beach, in my opinion, before Easter week. Located about 45 minutes from La Paz, BCS, Tecolote Beach is not built up, soft sand, and has a beautiful view of Espritu Santo island. We've been here once a week since we arrived 3 weeks ago. Come before noon and get a palapa because even in... More

I've been all over Baja and this place is the real Baja experience. It's kind of funky. The construction is crude. The furniture is not fancy. But, it's a great Baja place. The service is extremely friendly and the food is as good as it gets. The beach is great. I would go to La Paz just to spend an... More

Although it was a really windy day and not good for swimming or snorkeling, I still had a wonderful time walking the long expanse of beach and sitting at the Palapa Azul restaurant watching the surf and enjoying a big strawberry margarita. Great day away from the city.

This is just a peaceful, calm, clean beach. We've been in August and February with both visits satisfying our craving for the beach/food/drink and relaxation.

Beautiful long white sand beach, shallow waters, with rocky area on the west side. End of the paved hwy, sand parking lots. Several restaurants. No public facilities. Bus service. Best part for us was the rocky area for snorkeling.

We just spent the day here. We walk north along the beach to be secluded area. We brought our snorkeling gear and there was some beautiful fish and coral. We ate at one of the restaurants and had great guacamole, amazing piña colada, yummy margarita. The food was OK, not amazing. The waiter was friendly and brought us to taste... More

This is our favorite spot for boondock beach camping in Baja Sur. We spent the better part of month in Ja./Feb. Camped out on the east end of the beach, away from the restaurants. The water is gin clear, the beach sand is soft (several beaches we've visited in Baja have very abrasive, rough gravel). We enjoyed our kayak almost... More

We went to Playa El Tecolote by bus. We walked a short distance from the restaurant (spendy) and set ourselves up under a palapa in front of an aqua marine sea looking out to Isla Espritu Santo. The water was warm enough for swimming. The beach was perfect. Might say that the bus goes by Balandra Beach on the way,... More
