Bahia Conception has become a favorite destination over the years for people who want to experience the natural beauty of Baja. It’s ideally situated just south of Mulege and about 600 miles south of the Tijuana border.
One of the main draws is the stunning azure waters of the giant bay along the western coastline of Bahia Concepcion. This stretch is a little more than 20 miles and extends from two to five miles in width within the Sea of Cortez and is enclosed on three sides dotted with islands.
For those looking for a pristine beach experience, it offers travelers a chance to experience what “the real Baja” is all about with direct access to the best beaches in Baja located between 10km and 50km south of town.
Along with soaking up the tranquil beauty and sunshine at the white-sand beaches, the bay at Bahia Concepcion is also an ideal spot for kayakers with its calm breezes and mild currents. Plus, the bay welcomes sailors with numerous anchorages, as well as RVs, and campers.
The beachside campgrounds scattered along the coast below Mulege offer varying services for RVs and campers. Some provide complete services and even have onsite restaurants, however most are rustic, offering no services at all.
Things to Do
Fishing can be enjoyed here year round. What you’ll catch will depend on the season, but the area is known for yellowtail (winter), dorado and bill fish (summer), while grouper and bass abundant year round.
Other activities include shelling, snorkeling and diving, bird watching, and visit the prehistoric cave paintings of San Borjitas and La Trinadad.
For those who aren’t ready to go rustic, there are small hotels like the Clementines Bed and Breakfast, the Villa Claire Delores Inn, Hotel Hacienda, Hotel Terrazas, offer clean rooms, electricity, and friendly service.
