Loreto has a long sandy stretch of its own beach, with palapas for shade, but it doesn’t compare to the secluded white-sand beaches you’ll find on the islands inside the marine preserve. Nopolo has a pleasant beach, where you can rent Kayaks or Paddle boards. Access is through the Inn at Loreto Bay. Farther south, Playa Juncalito (Km 22.5) is worth a stop for snorkeling and a meal at the simple Vista al Mar palapa restaurant a bit farther down the highway.
