3 Beaches in Downtown Loreto
One of the best things about Loreto Mexico is that when visiting this paradisiacal Mexican beach destination, there is more than just one popular beach to visit during your stay. If a great beach in Loreto Baja California Sur is what you’re looking for, look no further than the top three beaches in downtown. Plan a day for all three or spend a whole day on each, your choice at the best beaches in Loreto Baja California. Find out why Playa La Dársena, Playa Oasis and Playa La Negrita are among the top beach spots in Loreto.
1. Playa La Dársena
Playa la Dársena is the place to be if you like the festive atmosphere of a busy beach; La Dársena is the beach in the city where everyone goes, confirming it is definitely one of the best beaches in Loreto. Easy to access, close to many activities and amenities like palapas, umbrellas, loungers and beach bars, Playa La Dársena is convenient if you want to spend less time planning and packing for a day at the beach and have everything handy to just sit back and relax. This beach in Loreto is also very kid and family friendly as it is partially protected by a breakwater, which makes it safer for kids to jump in the water. It also has so many on-site activities to choose from that everyone is guaranteed to have a good time. It’s like going to the carnival - in a bathing suit and sandals!

2. Playa Oasis
Playa Oasis is another great beach in Loreto Baja California Sur that’s easy to get to, but not as popular or busy as Playa La Dársena. Located on the south end of the Loreto Malecon, Playa Oasis is also near loungers, umbrellas and beach bars, meaning you can bring just a towel, sunglasses and your biodegradable sunblock and let everything else unfold by the ocean waves while being handed a refreshing pina colada or a very cold beer. A portion of the beach is not open for public access, but this downtown Loreto beach is very roomy in spite of that and its location could not make it easier to get to. Definitely include if you’re sightseeing and beach hopping as you enjoy the beauty of the magical town of Loreto.

3. Playa La Negrita
Looking for a pet friendly beach in Loreto Baja California? Playa La Negrita is a woof-nderful option. It is the beach of choice for travelers that bring a furry family member along. Its long coastline makes it perfect for a stroll, just do not forget to pack some water for two (or more if that’s the case) since there are no beach bars or stores. Located 1.7 kms from downtown Loreto, it is still pretty close and easy to get to. It is also a great beach in Loreto for swimming and doesn’t tend to get as busy, even during high season.
