enter el rosario, make right at the first mercado, then make left at first dirt road, go over stream,(there is a make shift bridge) then procedd west. when you reach the village keep going west untill you see a radar tower on hill, you will see a sign that says Punta Baja. make left. always keep towards the right. other wise you will end up in punta carlos. As you arrive to the beach you should be south of the point. this is perfect camp set up. on cliffs and there is a stair way down to beach.

camped it for 2 days - hung out here for 2 days waiting to see if the NW that was in the water would show at this spot, it was breaking way on the top of the point but was a really weird looking wave, the inside was acutally breaking but really close to the cliffs and it looked sketchy, this spot is a %100 hit or miss type of place, must need tons of swell, went down the The Wall and it was overhead and fun

Baja Expert - It is best to stay on the main highway and head South or stay at La Fonda. This stretch of coast has a tiny swell window and rarely gets good.Plus there heavy winds and the surf blows out easily. It is not worth the effort. There are way better and more consistant spots north in San Quintin. Plus once you head off of the main highway it is no mans land. Beware, it is extremely dangerous lots of baditos, cold, sharky, and bad surf everywhere.You have better luck of scoring good waves at home. There is little to no surf potential on this stretch of coastline. You may get lucky but my advice is to keep moving South or stay North.

ha - do your research and learn the swell windows. the road to PB is not all that bad. Expect a high skunk to score ratio. Like all points, it gets good, very good, just not very often.
