Glassy water is easy to come by at Balandra Beach as it sits in a bay, protecting it from the open ocean. Located in the desert climate of Baja California, this beach offers a striking environment of clear hillsides speckled with bright green cacti silhouetted against clear, blue skies. This area has been able to maintain its remote charm as it was named a Natural Protected Area in 2008, and is the ideal location for a full escape from the fast pace of daily life.
