La Paz is known for it's impeccable beaches. At Paraiso del Mar, the white sandy beaches go on for miles and miles. Because the Mogote (peninsula) sits away from the city, the beaches at the development are VERY quiet. It's not unusual that we can go for an hour run on the beach in the morning and not see a soul. Very peaceful...and very unlike the activity of Cabo.
There are also many well known beaches just outside of the main city. Below is a map of the well known beaches close to downtown La Paz.
