“El Pulvo: noun. A thin, crushed rock like substance found on many of the roads in Baja. You may know it as dirt, but you'll never drive on as many dirt roads as down here.”

Overall Rating

Firstly, this is ONLY suitable for small rigs manned by drivers with extreme confidence. If you're bald or failed Algebra 2, I would NOT recommend navigating the crazy steep, thin and treacherous road that leads to this little heaven of a beach south of Loreto, BCS.

On the other hand, I have been known to lose a little hair now and then, and as a homeschooling father, I can tell you that I don't know much about Algebra, and I made it. In a two-wheel drive four cylinder 1978 VW Bus. But seriously, the road is crazy dangerous and really the only road I've ever driven in seven years of full-timing and 37 years of life that has left me truly frightened for my life.

You will be rewarded with a more or less empty beach with stunning views, an incredibly cute small town backing it all, and vultures the size of turkeys that walk around like they don't care that there are wild pigs roaming about. The town itself does have a little corner store...look for the Pacifico signs, and a sign that says restaurant but I'm rather certain it's just someone's house and it wasn't open while we were there.

You can hike around the southern rocks at low tide to another secret beach which has significantly less trash than the main one (which is some type of national park where fishing isn't allowed, someone should tell the five or six boats we saw launch from the beach with fishing gear). From there, scramble up the rocks to the top of the mountain for even more stunning views of the islands, town and beaches.

Great bird watching here, too, from magnificent frigatebirds to a variety of herons, it was an all day binocular fest.

Again though, the road to get here is long, dirt, and dangerous. Did I mention dangerous? If not, let me just say it's more treacherous than the monkey scene that begins that 28 Days Later movie, so please go out and watch that movie, and then only drive down here if you feel like you are in a position to survive the zombie apocalypse!
