Something not right?

Description

We wanted to boondock in the desert between San Ignacio and Santa Rosalia, but it seems to be tightly controlled due to the cave paintings. We were told by a couple people to just camp at the beach.

Coming down the big hill on the highway before Santa Rosalia we spotted a web of tracks leading to the shore. We asked a local loading gravel beside the road and he said camping was no problem. (He also said fishing was good and mentioned ceviche.. )

We took a road through the old (?) airport turned racetrack grounds and just wound our way toward the beach. There look to be plenty of options out here, but the area also seems to be a popular place to dump trash.

We parked where the road we followed ended between a wash and the sea. Lots of big rocks so we camped about 100 yards from the beach. Very quiet night with neat views of the mining operations in the distance.

Latest Check-Ins

Great spot! Don’t follow Google Maps to the wash, it’s easier to follow the “road” along the coast. Camped here with friends and it was perfect! 3 bars with LTE on Verizon.

There were 3 cars ahead of us, and no one got searched. He asked us where we came from and where we were going, and if we were on vacation. Waved us on in about 20 seconds!

double post to add the photo....sorry about this!

Quiet, safe, light breeze....trashy. It DOES get better the further you go! We pulled in and were immediately turned off by all the trash, but we were close to sunset and try not to drive past dark so decided to drive in further as other reviews suggested. It's by no means great, and we're only going to say the night. But for this purpose, it's perfect. I added a pic of our chosen location (the C on the wash satelite image). hard surface to only need 2wd and we can somewhat let the pup roam. not great, but doable.

didn't really find the beach spot, since the road on maps.me was nowhere to by found, but found nice secluded spot under some small trees just before the sand got really soft approx. 200 meter away from the beach. However it was insanely hot during both day and night. If you don't have a/c, try something else during hot summer months

Several places for about a mile, each with privacy. The one you can get stuck in is the last before the riverbed. The others are no problem. Pretty much trash around, but a good spot anyway. A lot of birds around to spot. Quiet. Every day one local car for fishing, but even on the weekend no party or drunk guys. Very save.

If the wind is wrong, you'll get bad smell/smoke from the city's trash burning facility from the other side of the bay.

Nice spot just outside of town. Be careful as there are some areas that you can get stuck in, which I did. Thankfully I was able to get out on my own.

Good place at the Beach with Big gravel. If you take a place away from the sea then is quiet.
Windy. You find a lot of wood.

A lot of trash along the way, but the spot is (almost) clean. At the beginning, take right way (the smallest one on maps.me), the road is better than the left one (the white road on maps.me). Not a crazy place, but really OK.

Good spot for a quiet night close to town. We followed the track north and turned right towards the water at some point. Secluded and quiet with minimal trash. No 4x4 required.

The water is so warm! It is a rocky beach. The waves make a sound coming through the rocks that I haven't heard before. Coming to the spot was an incredible amount of trash - however, here there is not so much. We have a 2 wheel drive - Chevy Express and were able to make the road - you can stop anywhere along it. There was sand but we kept moving and made it through. The sand is softer in places - worth getting out to check. Medium clearance required. The town nearby is large and has a huge grocery store - Ley - worth stocking up if needed.

Ok spot for one night. Lots of garbage close to Hwy. Some locals enjoying the cool evening left after dark. Very quiet in the morning. We saw bunch of turkey vultures pretty close on our way in and dead puffer fish on the shore.

We pulled into a nice, level spot just south of the one they marked here. Nice and quiet. Good cell reception.

Wanted to do some boondocking here while passing through. The place is a dump and couldn’t find anywhere decent to park up. Didn’t stay.

Followed the race track path up the coast a bit and found a semi secluded patch to camp with views of the ocean. Bit trashy but the further you get from the highway the better it gets

saw the rocky beaches from the road, completelly littered with trash, go directly to san ignacio, great place!
