Description

Beautiful wild camp spot on a rocky beach. We used the National Geographic Baja Sur map to find the road that goes east from MX1. It's ranch land so you need to open the gate and close it behind you. No 4WD required to get to the spot we camped at, but the entrance we used from the gate is a bit rocky and steep.

The road does appear to get sandy in some spots as it goes east. It was very dry when we were here so there were a lot of great places to park, but it looks like the ground could hold some moisture at other times of the year so it would be a good idea to scope it out first.

Beautiful long beach that looks like it was/is only used for shellfish harvesting or fishing. No other homes along the beach here. There is a ranch house near the highway, but no one came by while we were there. Lots of marine birds, one dolphin, and cool sea creatures near shore. Amazing sunsets and sunrises with the surrounding mountains. Super peaceful- we loved it here!

Take the entrance at 76km gate not 74km! I don't know what kind of golf carts these folks were driving, but it might take me the rest of the decade to buff out all the scratches coming down Edward Scissorhands Lane. Granted 76km route is not a flat 0 grade drive and it does cross a little sand. But, it's also 80% shorter and 100% less bitey. We made it easily in our F150 & 21ft MicroLite.

Update: WILD DOGS or boar. Or both. Not sure which, it was dark and we had to scramble into the van with our dogs and use the air horn to get whatever it was to stop coming at us. Scary. Be careful!

Really nice, entrance is as described it we made it down fine, just go slow.
Lots of crabs and sting rays so watch your feet and your pups.
Not much trash. No one bothered us but cows and horses.
Lots of spots to stay, we didn’t stay at the actual marked spot.

As described, steep rocky entrance but easy flat road beyond that. Totally doable with 2wd just go slow. I would be cautious in some areas with 2wd after wet weather, looks like parts could get fairly muddy. We also stopped a bit before this pinpoint as we liked an earlier pullout better than this actual location. Nice quiet spot, saw nobody and nothing else except some cows and a bunch of birds!

I got here using the gate at the 74 km marker instead of the 76 km due clearance issues. Take the left road at the fork in the road at the house. Take a left again at a t intersection and then right. Follow the road along the bay to reach this marker. After the marker to the east the road is completely washed out.

Note your vehicle will likely be scratched by mesquite trees on this route.

as described,though it was pretty rocky and windy. I ended up not staying and heading to a palapas beach north from here. wanted to swim and it was not very good for that, but hey, it's free

Super nice, quiet and peaceful spot. Easy to get to from the highway through the gate. We checked in about 200m before these coordinates to be out if the wind and sight behind some bushes.
