  • Pristine Beach Camping - Punta Chivato

    by caaron Written Mar 13, 2005

    Punta Chivato is an empty beach located south of Santa Rosalia in Baja Sur, before Mulege. We camped here and absolutely loved how pristine the beach was, and the prime location. There were a few random homes around, but it was otherwise empty. It looks like there are some real estate developments in the area, but it is still very quiet. Pluses were the beautiful beach, snorkelling right off shore, warm, calm waters, peace and quiet, one fancy hotel driving distance away with restaurant, and basic facilities (pit toilet and shower). Downsides were that there was very little shade (a few palapas if you're lucky to grab them), no supplies around, TOO blistering hot in the summer.

    Directions: Going south from Santa Rosalia, there is a dirt road turnoff to the east at about K156, marked with a small sign. The road is about 10 miles or 30 minutes, and is rough and dirt/sandy. At the welcome sign turn left and follow the signs that say "camping".

    Our campspot in Punta Chivato..not enough shade!

  • Amazing bay's, coves and beaches

    Driving about 20 minutes out of the city of La Paz, heading towards Isla Espiritu Santo, you'll come across some of the most beautiful beaches in all of Mexico - Tecolote and Balandra. Since it is on the gulf the water is very calm. You can eat fresh and delicious sea food at the restaurant on Balandra beach and take a boat to explore the island of espirutu santo which is about 10-15 boat ride.

    Deserted Pacific Coast Beaches

    Drive up the Pacific coast and watch carefully for some small, unmarked dirt roads heading towards the ocean. You will likely find a beautiful beach and have it all to yourself. We found the road to this beach at Kilometer marker 97, about 25 kms outside of Cabo San Lucas. It was a beautiful Saturday afternoon and not a person to be seen (just a few burros).

    The desert is full of big and particular cactus, so inusual for me, that give at the landscape a 'cowboy film' atmosphere!
