Report Check-In

Now there is a sign where the sandy track branches off the gravel road prohibiting the access with motorized vehicles. We ignored that but camped at the very beginning of the beach as it is a nesting site for sea turtles (found a huge tortoise shell there).

Report Check-In

Short track down a little wash/arroyo to the beach. The track in was a little muddy, covering our tires and loosing traction, but found sand soon enough to make it the rest of the way. If you hug the north side of the beach access you get decent wind protection. Tons of fire wood. No dolphin skeletons. ;) Recommend high clearance for the coast road south of LA bay, remoteness that is hard to come by on the mainland or Central America, reminiscent of South America, a worthwhile drive and good test of your off roading.

Report Check-In

Camping right at the beach. The dirt road from Bahia de los Angeles to Punta San Francisquito is very rough but doable without four-wheel drive. However, while driving on the beach even we were stuck in the sand and could only go on with the help of sand panels and by airing down the tires. There were many dolphins in the water (as well as many dolphin skeletons at the beach).
