Off the toll road after the first toll booth before Cantamar and Rosarito. Baja Malibu is the actual exit (right after the San Antonio exit) and you can't miss it because there is a huge Tecate Jack's Bar sign there.

You can park next to the Tecate Jack's Bar as the cobblestone street to the beach is private and gated. There used to be a picture there in the parking lot of some guy surfing a glassy & hollow overhead wave with the caption, "You should have been here yesterday!"

Atmosphere

This spot makes a nice day trip from Sandiego, howwever, the spot is very polluted, the water is often brown and murky and it is colder than the rest of the coast.When a good swell comes in, Baja Malibu can throw spitting barrels in consistent double overhead sets! Otherwise, it's just another fun & uncrowded Baja beachbreak.
There's a KOA campground at the San Antonio exit so you can always pitch a tent at the only Baja campground with HOT water showers, clean restrooms, and even electricity outlets!

General

Although Baja Malibu is dirty and cold it offers an alternative to the more crowded quality beachbreaks in Southern California and not to mention it is in Mexico. Baja Malibu is an epic & uncrowded surf spot when it's going off and a fun beach break when it's not. Since it's at least 30 minutes before all the classic Baja spots, such as K38, La Fonda, & San Miguel, it's a good indicator of how it will be when you go further south down the toll road. If it's not good, you can always stop in Tecate Jack's and have a good meal & cerveza!!!

Sewage in the lineup helps keep the crowds down. - We local dirtbaggers don't mind all the crap in the water, since we've got the crappiest attitude in the surfing world anyhow, so don't come here unless you love total crap! Leave your ford's, chevy's, & dodge's at home coz we prefer Toyota tundra's. If you enjoy lying, cheating, stealing, & eating raw sewage then you will fall in love with the BM sh*thole peaks & dirtbag locals!! Welcome to hell!!!

Tundra Taken - Just surfed there yesterday. Waves were fun and very hollow, uncrowded, water didn't stink. But I was lucky I had a ride to get home in. Someone else got their Tundra stolen. Thief pulled a knife on someones girlfriend, threatened to kill her if she didn't hand over the keys. He threw their dog out the window as he made his escape. She was in tears. Thief was scoping the parking lot by the liquor store early AM in a small black sedan and came back on foot when he saw his opportunity. Everyone suiting up noticed his suspicious behavior. I'll bring a baseball bat next time. If someone pulls a knife it'll be showtime, if they pull a gun they can gladly have my car and my bat.

Dirty Dirty - I got sick at BM's in December 2002 surfing after a rain. Me and my friend both came down with the same intestinal infection. We were put on a powerful drug, cipro, what they give anthrax patients. I lost 15 pounds and was busted up pretty good for a month. I've surfed the place probably 3 dozen times and still don't feel comfortable there. It's HEAVY!!! Not for beginners. I've never had any problems parking, I always pay the guy by the store.
