Great place to park your RV for a month or so. The beach is soft sand and great to walk. Prime sites line the sea wall with best views.

Very pleasant site, but the picture does not seem to be the same place as I visited. Very enjoyable beach in winter.

We kept on hearing about Rocky Point, Puerto Penasco. It is the closest real beach to Phoenix. It sounded like a fascinating place to relax by the ocean. In talking some of our AZ friends who have driven there, they had to watch out for...More

Perfect beach to relax, hang out, get souvenirs, lay on the sand.. Our children had a great time collecting shells

beach was clean and not crowded. There was a tiki hut in the afternoon for drinks. Vendors would come by with kites, papaya and other items. If you told them no - they kept going they didn't pester us. Beach is long you can walk...More

We spent a lot of time on this beach. It is beautiful and clean. They had joggers at sunrise and horses at sunset.

You can get in at least 4-5 miles if you go round trip end to end. Simply pristine and beautiful. Good vendors if you need something but they’re not obnoxious like some can be in other Baja beach cities.

Nice beach just off downtown Rocky Point. Very calm on a weekday with a few vendors strolling by. Rented a canopy for 200 pesos for the day. Bring your own drinks and snacks as the prices are high on the restaurant people offering menus.

The beach is excellent, the water is warm, and waves are nice! Super low tide in AM and PM. There are several covered seating areas you can rent for 200 pesos, or abut $12. Honestly, they are a little shabby - our table had a...More

The beach is public. Parking is a bit of a problem. We parked on a side street near the beach, but to do this we had to get there early about 9am. There is a small section of stores not far from the beach where I think... More
