Malarrimo Beach


Any recent accounts of approaches to Malarrimo beaches? I am aware of "getting stuck" nomad stories but all several years old (from my search), but no particulars about best exits from paved highway.

No GPS tracks please (can't load them here)....but co-ords may be helpful....but I like the map thing....

Will be camping in the general area in a week or so north of Tortugas...

Gracias.

Ged, I described all the exits to both Malarrimo Beach and Malarrimo fish camp in my Trip #5 report. I even drove a short distance in on the traditional road to confirm it. I am on my phone away from home but can get you all the data posted here, as you wish.

JZ, seriously? Perhaps the most famous beach in Baja written about for the past 60 some years!

Gracias, David,
A link to your report will suffice....have been GE'ing it so have a sense of what's what....will ride from where we will camp below Punta Eugenia...so biking will take me anywhere....but no beach riding.....can handle silt (DT Bushpilot will soon ask for pics of surgery staples....he can't get enough of that :biggrin: ).....but not quicksand....

I realize there are countless entry points overland, but have to chose which ones are likely best....

It's a long beach....:coolup:

I was last out there in Jan. of 2015. Here is the trip report I did. WE started out wanting to do the No Wimp Trail but a hurricane had destroyed it. It is well worth the effort to see it.

The trip report.

I was out there with our Moto group a few days ago and we camped at a few spots. What’s do you wanna to know? Lots of sand, deep sand, it was cold and windy, but clear and perfect riding conditions, Gas athe Pemex at Tortugas, Asuncion and Abreojos. Goat tacos at the local market taco stand in Tortugas ... lots of exploring and riding almost anywhere you wanna go. The trail to Malarrimo can be tough to figure out if you’ve never been but it’s on all the maps, just know the abandoned ranch is only a slab and much of the wood has been picked through. Their is still ranch debris where it once stood and is just off the pavement by 50-60 yards.

Fantastic camp spots along the beaches and bluffs south of Asuncion with easy access ...

We saw no one else ...

All my research trips of 2017-2018 are in the Nomad Trip Reports forum and simply titled TRIP #1-#8 for simplicity.
Here is Trip #5 (June 2017): http://forums.bajanomad.com/viewthread.php?tid=86781

Some of the photos showing the Malarrimo Road:


Malarrimo road where it leaves the highway. Abandoned ranch site is the cleared area. Km. 117


The Malarrimo road, just north of the abandoned ranch and highway junction.


Vegetation is soon overgrowing onto the road.

It is clear this side trip requires a full day devotion and time to explore the beach, 26 miles away. I turn around a mile from the highway and continue on to Bahía Asunción.


The Pipeline road to access Malarrimo is at Km. 83.


The little curb along the highway has been busted up to allow access onto or off of the pipeline road. A second access is just west.

The storms wiped out the access from the black doom aka pavement to the dirt, so now their is a very slight trail, hard to see, not as pronounced as DK's photos in the past. Lotta water and deep gullies to get across ...

Ed was there....and reported accurately :coolup:

Good weather until rain last of three days on the coast....Ed and I scoured evry :smug:rail we could find from the road to beaches/camps all along Seven Sisters from south end between KM 27 and 30 km's northwards from there..... we had the best campsite of all....but Ed and I are sworn to kill the other if we divulged which beach camping was best.... so go find your own....:biggrin:

Shore fishing was all-day Corvina and clams....

Too bad the other wannabee's didn't make the trip....it was a good one for riding and fishing....

Going up camping north of Bahia Tortugas this week....for fishing and motoing....

We camped on the bluff around Punta Falsa for a couple days.
Lots of kelp, so hard to fish
Spectacular views of Cedros and the sea.
There is a lobster breeding and research station there.
Talk nice and you might get a guided tour like we did.
The security patrol guy will check on your camp (looking for poachers I understand) but we just gave him a hot wrap off the grill and a cold coke and he was happy to keep an eye on our camp.
No problemo
Not much in the way of eating in Tortugas, so be prepared to not have a hearty meal in that town.
