You can paddle along the coast or across the channel to Isla Espiritu Santu. Around the headland to the west is a beautiful secluded beach, and further along is the cove and beach, Playa Balandra. To the east, a bit further, I have heard there is a good snorkeling area, at the third point.

Across the channel to the north is Isla Espiritu Santu. The channel is about 5 miles wide.

There are several restaurants, and boats for hire that can take you fishing, sightseeing, or with your kayak to the island. There is no charge for camping or parking or launching. Parking is safe overnight if you keep your valuables out of sight, and park down the beach to the E among the RVs.

It can be very windy here, lasting for days. The channel can become choppy with large waves. Take enough extra water for several days, if you should have to wait out the wind. But it can also be calm for days. The west coast of the island is more sheltered, and has more places to land--beaches and coves. You will need shelter from the sun, but usually you can find a cliff or a cave that offers shade during the hot parts of the day. When walking in shallow water, you should drag or shuffle your feet, to scare away stingrays.

None to launch or park, but there is a fee for day use if you land on the island of Espiritu Santu.
