Cabo Pulmo

Pulmo, a Latin root for lung, refers to the breath-holding of the pearl divers who originally colonised the island. You can enjoy year-round diving at this national marine park, which encompasses 17 dive sites including an underwater canyon, where visibility can reach 100ft. You can swim here all year, though in winter you’ll more than likely be joined by humpback whales and whale sharks. Fishermen replaced the pearl divers, who fished the reef and local area heavily until they gave up their nets to protect Cabo Pulmo, leaving the only hard coral reef in the Gulf of California. The reef, nicknamed ‘’The Aquarium of the World’’, has over 800 species of marine life and is considered a treasure of Mexico's Baja California Peninsula.

Isla Espiritu Santo & Isla Partida

For beautiful beaches in southern Baja and the chance to see playful sea lion pups, this is the region to come. Isla Espiritu Santo & Isla Partida are separated by a narrow shallow channel and the largest colony of seals can usually be found at Los Islotes, just north of the isles. If you like, you can dive in from the swim platform for an even closer encounter. There is a cove on the west side of Los Islotes, with the famous rock formation ‘La Mascara’ where a haunting image of a face stares out into the blue. The rock walls reveal the secrets of its birth, with the ancient volcanic ash and lava creating a geologic rainbow of pink, brown and beige rows.

Isla San Francisquito

A little south of Isla San José, is another small island, once the domain of gold miners and pearl prospectors, which today is deserted aside from a diverse range of reptiles and birds. You can follow one of the hiking trails through the island or just kick-back on one of the pearly-white beaches. This uninhabited island is located in the southern portion of the Gulf of California, and is home to ten species of reptiles including the endemic Isla San Francisco whiptail. If you fancy a dive, there is a fantastic reef with excellent visibility where there are plenty of great opportunities for marine photography. The island has a wide bay, with a beach that wraps all the way round.

Isla San Jose

The small island of San José is surely one of Mexico’s prettiest. The coloured cliffs that frame the island, tower above the bluest waters, and though much of the island is arid, drop anchor in Bahia Amortajada on the south of the isle and you’ll enter a world of mangroves teeming with pelicans, herons and other exotic birds. On the island you can find an old private airstrip, a small fishing village, and an abandoned salt mine with old buildings and equipment located at Pointe Salina. Isla San Jose is also a great place for kayaking where you can explore the vibrant green mangrove forests and sandy spits, with wonderful creatures occupying the algal-covered rocks and rocky coral below.

La Paz

Baja California’s capital still bears evidence of her Neolithic settlers in the rock paintings that can be found in her surroundings, while in her centre, it’s brimming with bars, laid-back cafes and some surprisingly good restaurants. A colourful, lively city, it is nevertheless, only a short hop from some stunning beaches and exceptional dive sites. The Malecon (the 5 km stretch of the seafront) is lined with bars, restaurants and shops. A walkway down the whole stretch makes a lovely walk in the evening and is very popular with visitors. Outdoor activities such as sport-fishing take centre stage, with the opportunity to catch marlin, tuna, dorado and many more.

Loreto & the Parque Nacional Bahia de Loreto

Parque Nacional Bahia de Loreto lies off its coast and is remarkably home to 80% of Pacific Ocean marine life, and frequent blue whale sightings make it a popular place with sea kayakers. Isla del Carmen is the largest island in the nature reserve, with a huge mountain range that soars above the seascape and is a heavenly place to swim, hike, or simply beach-lounge The uninhabited islands of Santa Catalan and Monserrate, meanwhile, are great places to spot native birdlife, including vibrant parrots, and the clarity of the water make them both perfect for diving and snorkelling. This island is not visited as much as the other nearby cruising destinations, so you can often find a beautiful & deserted white sand beach to explore alone.

San Jose de Cabo

At the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula, this Sea of Cortez resort town is a little quieter and less in-your-face than nearby Cabo San Lucas and is undeniably pretty too, with palm-fringed lagoons, old colonial buildings and more than a little of the Old Baja about it. This is also where you will find the unparalleled One&Only Palmilla resort. This picture-postcard perfect city has a rich and colourful history, offering an abundance of Mexican charm and hospitality. San Jose del Cabo is best enjoyed on foot, with many art galleries showcasing both traditional and modern works from local artists. If you're seeking respite from the party-laden streets of Cabo, take a ride out to San José for a stroll around the lovely plaza.
