Recreational Activities

BEACHES/SWIMMING
The Rocky Point beaches are the main attraction. The water is clear. With the warm weather, you can swim 8 to 9 months a year. Most of the beaches are sandy and the slope is very gradual so you can walk far out without fear of drop off or rip tides. The wide tidal range is great for tide pool beachcombing for critters and shells. Beaches range from pure sand where your family can relax or play, to volcanic rocks and reefs where snorkeling is great. If you want more excitement, just flag down one of the many “Banana” ride boats cruising the beaches for your enjoyment.

FISHING
Rocky Point fishing is great. You can fish all year in Puerto Peñasco. Bottom fishing is the most popular for flounder, grouper, black sea bass and more. Trolling is also used when the season is right for schooling game fish. Use your own boat or go out on one of the many charter boats. Charter boats range from the smaller “panga” style party boats, to larger sport fishing charter boats. You can also rent a fishing boat. Most offer half day and full day charters. All fishing charters include everything you need. They will even clean the fish for you.
