Can you swim in Baja California? With the longest coastline in Mexico, boasting 2230 km of coast and beach, it’s no wonder beaches in Baja California Sur are known for great swimming and surfing. Top rated beaches include Playa del Amor (lover’s beach) and ironically, Divorce Beach.
Which side of Baja is best? The Pacific side of Baja, especially in the north, has a much milder climate than the rest of the peninsula. The Pacific currents and the winds that come off of the ocean tend to keep the Pacific side much cooler than the Sea of Cortez side.
Does Ensenada have nice beaches? There are no beaches in Ensenada proper, but beaches north and south of town are satisfactory for swimming, sunning, surfing, and camping.
