I would not come here in a 2WD Promaster. Super long road of nothing but soft sand. We got stuck multiple times before ever making it to the beach, tried backing out and eventually got massively stuck trying to turn around. After digging and using traction boards for hours, ended up staying the night in our stuck spot and called a tow truck next morning to get us out, cost us $250 USD. Not covered with Baja bound as this is a non conventional road. This was our first night in Baja unfortunately. Wish we would’ve spent the money on a camp in San Filipe instead.

awesome, quiet beach just off 5 - the road in is pretty obvious as there are several big concrete pillar looking things with graffiti. I followed to the road in and onto the beach. went about half a mile north on the sand and found a nice little spot tucked away, lots of these if your rig is sand/beach worthy!

Well we turned off at the spot we thought we correct, although the km26 marker is missing. Driving a wee way in in our 2 wheel drive ProMaster, we soon called it as too soft, and backed out. A short way after we saw a road that appeared harder packed, and thought perhaps this was it. We drive in bout 200 m and it was becoming softer so decided we should back out. We got stuck. Then stucker. Heading to the road, a kind man stopped to see what trouble we were having (2 ol’ pale Canadians on the side of the highway) - and arranged for his cousins to come and give us a pull with there little 4 wheel drive truck. They then arranged for us to stay on their property for the night - the best $10 for a camp night that we’ve spent.

Great spot, we stayed here four days and never saw another soul for half of them. We have a pop top and the wind, while persistent, was never strong enough to be a problem. Some service for both Verizon and att

As described below. The road had soft spots but passable in our Promaster 2WD without deflating. There was a Jeep on the beach with a couple of gringos fishing. Otherwise empty for miles. Room for many rigs out here.

Beautiful stretch of white sandy beach. We saw no one for miles although could see tire tracks on the sand. Accessed by unmarked dirt road at KM 26 off of MEX 5, in-between Puertocitos and San Felipe. 3G coverage on Verizon. No amenities and beach was super clean. Road to the edge of the dunes was accessible for any size rig but we aired down to drive onto the soft sand of the beach itself. Absolutely gorgeous site!
