Isla Coronado

Isla Coronado, also known as Coronado Island, is a small island located in the Sea of Cortez (Gulf of California) off the eastern coast of the Baja California Peninsula in Mexico. It is situated in front of the town of Loreto, which is a popular tourist destination known for its historic sites, marine activities, and natural beauty.

Isla Coronado has two particular stunning beaches and is well worth visiting. The island is part of the Loreto Bay National Park, which was established in 1996 to protect the diverse marine life and ecosystems of the region. Coronado island is characterized by its rugged terrain, stunning beaches, and clear waters. It's a popular destination for snorkeling, diving, and wildlife observation, as the waters around the island are home to a variety of marine species, including colorful fish, sea lions, dolphins, and even occasional sightings of whales.

The island is also known for its distinctive landmark, a rocky outcrop known as "El Vigía," which stands prominently on its northern side. This natural rock formation provides nesting sites for seabirds, making it a haven for birdwatching enthusiasts.

Tourists visiting Loreto often take boat trips to Isla Coronado to enjoy its natural beauty, engage in water activities, and explore the marine life in the area. The island and its surroundings offer a serene and pristine environment, making it a popular spot for eco-tourism and outdoor enthusiasts. This island is a regular stopping point for Baja Charter’s yachts doing extended trips through the islands east and north of La Paz and on up to the Loreto and surrounding areas.
