Another short drive to Bahia Concepcion which includes a drive by of the historic mining town of Santa Rosalia, before we arrive at the very popular RV destination for many Snowbirds with twelve (12) beach campgrounds. Bahia Concepcion (23 miles long) is the largest bay in Baja and is located a short drive south of Mulege. Our destination beach is Playa Santispac. The experience of camping on a beach in the Bay of Concepcion grows on RVers which is why so many Canadians and Americans alike spend the entire winter here. We adopted our dog Jitterbug off a nearby beach.
Because the waters off most beaches are so warm and calm, and because the water is so shallow, even the most timid landlubbers enjoy frolicking in the waters of Bahia Concepcion. The “large island” that can be seen way across the bay from these beaches is actually a large barren peninsula. A rough road traverses the peninsula to the tip, but there is very little out there besides rocks and cactus.
