Description

This spot is so close to the city, yet totally silent, private, and scenic. You can camp in the desert or simply follow any of the dirt roads directly to the ocean and camp for free by a palapa. You will not need 4WD for anything of it EXCEPT if you choose to camp at a palapa, as the sand is deep. 3 bars and full LTE service with TelCel.

Stayed here 2 nights without issues. A local came up who us and asked us to take down our hammock from the palapa as they’re not very structurally sound which is fair. Some palapas are good for 2WD and some are not just walk them first. Beautiful sunrises!!!

Updating our review from before: We stayed here on our way out of Baja. Another group that was staying here had 2 dogs pass away. They got into a clam & ended up getting poisoning from it. According to the vet it’s a common poisoning to animals here. Changed the status to “not pet friendly” due to this event.

We absolutely loved this spot! Stayed here for a few days enjoying the views. Great breeze, shallow water, Mountain View’s, 10 minute drive to town. There was a farmers market on Sunday that was lovely!
We absolutely loved the palapas here! Be cautious of nails from palapa palms. Some were fallen on beach.

Beautiful spot. There are a lot of palapas for people to use. Dry camping only. Would return!!

One thing to note, the road in is pretty skinny. We are in a truck camper and had to turn around at one point or risk major scratches. Need a car or a pop-up camper to get through unscathed. Van maybe depending on height and width.

Spent 3 nights there. You can go close to the beach where there are the palapas, we saw some locals do it too, and some other travelers. Possible to do a fire, very quiet and beautiful!! Enjoy!!

All reviews accurate. Don’t fret when you cross the highway because it looks like there’s a white curb blocking you, but don’t worry, there’s a flat space between the curb from which to enter..

driving here was on a flat dirt road, we have a truck 2wd and trailer and was easy coming in. Nice quiet change from cramped big city feel of loreto. so good!!

Right on ocean and peaceful and still only 14 mins driving back to loreto if you wanna go back for restaurants etc.

We are beginner fishers and took out the canoe on the sea and caught 7 fish!!! 4 bass and 3 trigger!

Palapas along the beach, maybe we’re built by fishermen long ago, great shaded areas,camping right on the sandy beach on the water. Not crowded at all, hardly anyone else camped here people are jogging by the water and has nice flat path for bike riding

Worth it, if you like quiet and camping right in the sea! ..

only thing is it’s right next to a small airport, but only a few small planes flew in the whole time.. super tiny airport..we were here a week and the airplanes were busy on January 1st

There is a fair amount of garbage around: mostly cigarette butts…so reminder::::

PLEASE as always clean up your trash and if you can take someone else’s trash too!!🥰🗑🧹

No issues entering or leaving following google maps indications. Spent 2 nights here, beautiful spot. Some car traffic in the middle of the night though.

I was right next to the beach but out of the soft sand. at 2:00 a.m. the cops rousted me. told me the beach closes at 7:00 p.m. Naturally there were no signs to that. between his crappy English and my crappy Spanish I figured out he was trying to extort money out of me. I gave him 500 pesos and went back to bed. if I had had a smaller bill I would have tried that

We had the whole place to ourselves. We pulled up behind one of the palapas on the hard packed sand. The beach is clean and the sunset and sunrise are amazing. There is foot traffic early around 7 am which may disturb your sleep if not an early riser. 2 to 4 bars of Telcel service. Editing post the entrance off the road is very loose sand. No issues entering; however, we could not get out in our 2 wheel drive Ram Promaster. We searched for alternative routes only to find dead ends. A local guided us to one dead end and finally a cut in a fence that allowed us to access a road. Very scary and not worth it.

Stayed at the palapas our second night instead of the marked spot because the dirt at the coordinates is kinda intense with our dogs.
In the morning two women came buy asking for money. I pretended Not to know what they wanted and kept saying no. They left after a few minutes.
There’s a lot of trash at the palapas. Not a place I’d spend the day but we cleaned our space and it was a nice spot for the night. No one else around but people were on their morning walks around 7, hence the women trying to get money from us.
Get to the beach no problem in a 2wd
Just be careful which palapa you park under. The sand is packed on some and loose on others.

Stayed here after the police cleared out seemingly all of the free spots to overnight in town
Had a few people drive by but no one stopped
So far so good tonight

As described. Free, near the airport. Had to enter from the highway nearly due west of the point (after the dirt mounds and bridge if you’re heading south out of Loreto). Convenient for us to kayak from.
