This paper explores key aspects of enhancing local coastal management in Todos Santos, Baja California Sur, Mexico. I begin with an examination of the current state of the local coastal environment that encompasses its strengths and opportunities. The study also investigates the primary threats to the local coastal environment. Additionally, the research suggests a number of policy measures and improvements to address these challenges that could ensure effective management of the coastal environment. I employ secondary information sources, together with a household survey and semi-structured and informal interviews, to collect data for my study. I then adopt a comprehensive methodology to analyse the data that integrates Doctrinal legal research and a Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats (SWOT) analysis. Findings underscore significant threats, including beachfront construction, uncontrolled population growth and land use, and potential large-scale tourism developments. The examination of legal aspects reveals contradictions within Mexico's environmental laws, indicating substantial gaps, inconsistencies, and disconnections, with the absence of specific legislation, which increases the difficulty of addressing these challenges.
