You can get in at least 4-5 miles if you go round trip end to end. Simply pristine and beautiful. Good vendors if you need something but they’re not obnoxious like some can be in other Baja beach cities.

Nice beach just off downtown Rocky Point. Very calm on a weekday with a few vendors strolling by. Rented a canopy for 200 pesos for the day. Bring your own drinks and snacks as the prices are high on the restaurant people offering menus.

Large, flat beach here. Good to beach comb in the early mornings. Warm water to take a dip when the summer sun heats you up. Worth coming here, and would return.

Beautiful beach with close restaurants and things to do. The Rv park used to be our favorite place, but no longer. Last time there they lost our reservations. We had a print out of our confirmation and they swore we had cancelled it. They offered...More

Nearly empty beach. Sandy with occasional coral that could be gone tomorrow. It looks like rocks but isn't. Not too many peddlers and definitely no hassle. Low tide is easier to walk on as sand is deep in places. We took a bag and picked...More

The beach is public. Parking is a bit of a problem. We parked on a side street near the beach, but to do this we had to get there early about 9am. There is a small section of stores not far from the beach where I think... More
