Beachcombing on Central Baja’s Pacific Coast

By Shari Bondy

Central Baja’s Pacific coast boasts endless miles of pristine beaches of every description. The beachcombing is excellent and you just never know what you might find. The beaches often have skeletons of dolphins, whales, sea lions and birds as well as all kinds of sea critters like jellyfish and mermaid’s purses, floats, not to mention a wide variety of shells. I keep wondering when we will start to see debris from Japan showing up on the beaches.

Here are some photos of one of my beach walks last week. I found four dolphin skeletons, bright red fire coral, sand dollars and the different shaped, colored jellyfish were fun to name.  I named the jellyfish “Scream,” “Bigfoot,” and the self portrait “baby dinosaur.”

I came across these deserted palapas that are now home to a couple osprey bird families, beach shacks and structures, and a beautiful sunset in the desert on the way home. is a comprehensive online source of first-hand travel information for the Baja California Peninsula, supported by a full-service tour operator staffed by Baja locals (our “Baja Travel Savants”).
