As big as San Francisco Bay, but no fresh water...

This vast, beautiful bay is only semi-accessible and is extremely arid, with only a smattering of accommodations, which has preserved it nicely.

You won't find a location more beautiful than this... I suppose you could call it Shangri-la! It's worth the half hour drive south from Mulege... there isn't really anything there except beach and the ocean and that's just the way it should be, no development, nothing, just a few beach cottages scattered about... loved it!

First of al: stay at the Playa Frambes Lighthouse resort and check my review on this accomodation for reasons why. If you're planning to stay in Mulege, this is were you'll want to go. Not too far from Mulege but at the same time very calm and private, Bahia Concepcion is paradise on earth. On the camping sites there are... More

The beaches and water in Bahia Concepcion are breathtakingly beautiful. The swimming is great, and there's plenty of room for you. The only downside is that you share most beaches with RVs. If you HAVE an RV, I guess that's great, but if you're like me and want a place to lay out a blanket in the sun, it could... More

There is not one but at least a dozen soft white sand beaches along the Bahía Concepcion which is one of the most beautiful sceneries in Baja California over the Sea of Cortés. You can swim surrounded by fish and pelicans that suddenly drop over the water of the catch of the day. Some of the beaches are right beside... More

I was fortunate enough to see this place in 1968 when it was unspoiled. It is still beautiful but is now strewn with camp and RV site. Still an amazing body of water.

Jacques said it was the richest marine environment anywhere. It was-until opened up to Japanese fishermen. They were thrown out and the bay is coming back and is well worth exploration. Take the opportunity to swim with whale sharks (harmless)! Great fishing - trophy fishery in summer months. Lots and lots of history and beautiful scenery. See the second of... More

On our flight to Loreto, we met a wonderful woman named Shirley who has lived at Posada on Bahia Concepcion for about 30 years. On her invitation, we stopped by to see her and the community. WOW! We passed several beaches on the way north from Loreto that looked heavenly, but Posada is extraordinary. There are 3 natural hot springs... More

Bahia Conception is the perfect microcosm of Baja. Remote, stunningly beautiful, small burghs of Mexican's and Gringos with cool bars and restaurants, and amazing water sports. If you only go to one place in search of the real Baja, Bahia Concepcion is what you're searching for.

Kayaking off the beach at Santispac continues to a high lite of our year travelling. We also camped and hung out. There is a hot spring behind the beach. The water is stunning in it's clarity. We wish we had wheels to see more of the beaches. The Baja peninsula is just stunning.
