Latest Check-Ins

Beautiful and serene beach. No facilities save for disgusting pit toilets. 150 pesos. Easy access with 2 wheel drive

we didn't stay as we found the place was too dirty for the fact that they ask 150 pesos to "maintain" it. we don't mind paying our part if it is worth it. not here unfortunately. instead we camped for free a bit down south on a rocky but clean and free of charge beach.

on a sand spit cut off by high tide ! windy but nice!

Just correcting the coordinates. Hopefully it works.
I have to say that the sand bar is cool.

150$ pero night or 100$ for stay during the day.
too expensive in our opinion, because the toilets are dirty and a bit of rubbish around the place, but the landscape is beautiful.
we arrived around 6pm and we leave at 9 am so nobody asked us about money.
if you dont want to pay... haha

Amazing place ! And very quiet.
Accessible for big RV (30Ft or more), no need for 4WD or high clearance.

150 for van during the night, 100 for beach maintanance if visiting only during the day. the nice beach sandbar is only during low-tide. saw bio-luminescence in the sea at night

The beach and the water looks just gorgeous, but we think it’s a bit overrated in most of the comments here. The toiletts are just how described. We were two Vans and paid 150 Pesos each, what we didn’t found very ok, because we shared our Palapa.

This spot is perfect if you're trying to escape the normal chit chat of a campground. The palapa are weathered but that adds to its remoteness. My husband said the bano was scary but we're in an RV complete with our own facilities. The water is magnificent, warm, and calm which is perfect for the little ones to explore. I totally dig this place and it's crystal clear water.

Maybe the best beach of the bay!!!!! About 5 palapas not in really good shape but doesn't matter: you're in a lovely wild beach, clear water, you can go to the island in front of just walking, without swimming. We were alone, no snowbirds ! Pit toilets not so clean. Paid 150 pesos as it's written at the entrance. If you don't want to pay, it's possible to turn right at the entrance and follow the coast, there are several sites to camp along the dust road, no need 4x4, but not so beautiful beach!!

Magnifique spot , nous sommes resté 5 nuits ici . Tous les jours passent des vendeurs de clams ,crevettes et quelques pâtisseries . Super coin de pêche sur l'île à côté , du côté mer de Cortez .

Beautiful Bay, shallow warm water perfect for snorkeling or floating. Wide spaces between palapas. Basic pit toilets. Very friendly caretaker. $150 pesos per night. Others report windy but wasn't in Oct, just mild breeze. Easy paved road access. Dog heaven.
Four stars for scenery and beauty.

Great beach camp spot on the bay. Nice palapas spaced wide apart. Pit toilets. 150 peso/night. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Dogs loved it here.

another lovely beach with a spit if land at low tide going out to an island. unfortunately it gets very windy late afternoon.

we camped here for 2 nights over easter weekend. Got charged 150 pesos but i think thats only because it was easter - when we asked she said that the price is the same as all the other beaches now.

Level, solid sand spot right on a small and very scenic beach, pretty clear water. Some wind/salt/sand. Pit toilets. Great spot, easy access from highway, overpriced (100 MXP/night).

Pour nous, le plus belle plage de la baie!! Et la moins infestée de snow birds aussi. On a vu personne à qui payer!!

By far our favorite beach. Situated on a sand bar with about 5 palapas, it has calm, shallow waters that are perfect for sitting in or snorkeling if you go further out. Many of the palapas were not in great shape though, but the toilets were fine. Stayed two nights for 100p/night.

the beach was almost empty when we arrived. A few other cars arrived after dark. Very clean. Guardian is friendly. Lots of wildlife in the water, which is warm and clear. 100 pesos.

Great beach to camp. Warm water. Beautifull area, calm and relaxing. Destroyed pit toilets (by hurricane?). Pretty quiet at this time of the year. Some people come for the day, some others camp for the night or nobody comes and you have the whole site for you for a day - like it happened to us. We stayed there 3 nights and because the manager (Tomas) was not there (low season in Sept) it was free. Even if we were alone one night we felt safe.

camped here for 3 nights in may, was such a beautiful spot with incredible water and is shallow and warm! we didn't use the bathrooms at all but could see they were dirty. nice place to relax!

Beautiful setting, but also a lot of garbage in the vicinity. Shallow water, not so good for swimming, especially at low tide. We paid 100 Pesos.

- as described
- 100 pesos per palapa per night
- we negotiated 50 pesos discount for spot without palapa between El Requeson and Perla

Wide open area with 5-6 palapas. South side of the beach was cleaner than the north. 100 pesos/night Feb '16. Cool little sand bar that reveals from the tide in the afternoon this time of year. Pit toilets only but deeper than Coyote so some may find them not as bad. The stalls have doors here. Water is more shallow further out than some other beaches up the bay.

Stunningly beautiful beach camping, 100M per night, with or without palapa, and no matter what vehicle you pull up in. We stayed 7 amazing nights and may have stayed longer but also grew tired of the RV caravan that showed up running genny's day and night. The hell do you need a generator for at 6am?! Anyways, Tomas (manager?) was kind and there were many vendors around each day selling fish, fresh juice, tamales, name it. Pit toilets are old and many cockroaches but for 8 bucks a night in paradise who cares. Great snorkelling and caught a few fish. If you want to get out on the water, go up to JC's restaurant and talk to Juan Carlos--for $125USD he took 4 of us out for snorkelling, fishing, ceviche lunch and beers. Watch out for scorpions near the palapas!

Very nice. Watching pelicans dive while eating lunch. 100 pesos a night. Pit toilets. Clean.

Beautiful beach! There are palapa huts you can park by as it is quite windy here. You can follow a path to a couple of other beaches and there's a small island you can walk to when the tide is out. There are very rustic outhouses and someone comes by in the mornings selling baked goods and fish ect... Cost is 100 pesos per night to a guy who lives on site and keeps the place clean. We met a lot of great people at this spot and would have liked to stay longer. Unfortunately we decided to move on due to a group of snowbirds in giant RVs at one end of the beach. They were extremely arrogant and rude and had obviously decided that this was their beach and they didn't want anyone else there. Every night and some mornings they would run loud smelly generators for hours at a time without any consideration of their neighbours. When we asked how much longer they were going to be running there machines they were dismissive and rude. But hey, I guess being at a beautiful and remote beach isn't good enough for some people - you still gotta have your microwave and your blueray player.... So camp away from the big rigs!

100 pesos for a palapa in nice cove. Shallow clear water sandy beach good for swimming, SUP.

Camping at the beach. Not as nice as "Playa El Coyote" next door. The pit toilets and palapas were old. Too expensive for what it is.
