Bonanza Beach

Bonanza Beach is a stunning, white sand beach located on the southeast side of Isla Espiritu Santo, a spectacular island in the southern Sea of Cortez, about a two-hour boat ride from the capital city of La Paz, Baja Sur California. Isla Espiritu Santo is part of a protected area called the Archipelago de Espiritu Santo National Park, which was designated a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in 1995.

Bonanza Beach is the largest beach on Espiritu Santo island. It is known for its crystal-clear waters, white sand, and incredible views. It is typically very quiet, and visitors here are almost always completely alone on this magnificent beach. The beach itself is approximately 1.5 miles long and is surrounded by towering red cliffs, making it a popular spot for hiking and exploring. The waters around Bonanza Beach are rich in marine life, and visitors can often spot dolphins, sea turtles, and a variety of fish. The beach is an excellent spot for snorkeling and scuba diving. The waters are teeming with colorful corals and a myriad of underwater creatures.

Visitors to Bonanza Beach can camp overnight on the beach with permission from Conanp, the Mexican National Park service, but there are no facilities or services available on the island. Ergo, visitors arriving by boat, will need to bring their own supplies, including food and water. Bonanza Beach is a must-visit destination for anyone traveling to the Sea of Cortez, offering a unique and unforgettable experience of natural beauty and marine life.
