I have told so many times "there are no secrets in Baja". I do dislike the exploitation of these spots, but gave up trying to slow it down.

I kinda get amused when people try the "secret spot" thing.

Maybe they want to keep it to themselves, or trying to protect the place from the crowds.

I can't count how many times have helped tourists and locals to get out of the Sto. Domingo roads. The N and S routes are 4x4 only, but that doesn't seem to stop them. While the southern route is shorter, it's also steeper but closer to where is people and help.

The northern route its more demanding, and in case you make a wrong move it's a loooong walk to find somebody to help.

Those "secret beaches" are nice. The southern cove it's very popular during the fishing tournaments the ejido organizes for its anniversary.

The northern cove, the one with the arch, has a sea lion colony, and it's also very popular for camping since its more protected from wind and high tides.

We dropped the tires down to 20 going up that hill. Normal pressure is 70. Was a little bit worried, but the truck blasted up it.

No way a 2 wheel drive is making it up.

It was fun to see Cameron's "secret" beach (he takes Trail of Missions guests to) during one of my road guide expeditions (TRIP #4)...


The people in the arch show the scale.

Questions for JZ, how does that receiver hitch work out on the dirt roads? Is it for 2 bikes? What speed can you run off road? All steel? Thanks

always creates a special interest when " secret beach " is introduced here. Most Baja travelers have thier own secret beach and are pretty much open to sharing it with other likeminded baja travelers. Surfers of coarse are very protective of baja breaks, after all they are always over run by millions of surfers, baja is just kinda that way. anyway, thanks for sharing, that part of the baja coast is pretty awesome

It holds two bikes. Anytime we go offload I take the back bike off minimum. The bike by the hitch is ok if it isn't too rough.

Have a special elbow that flips the carrier vertical when both bikes are off. The rails that hold the bikes are aluminum, and the main bar is hollow steel. I reinforced it near hitch by putting a solid steel bar in it. It's a Black Widow from Discount Ramps.

I love the giant sand whoops on the beach. Kind of a short track though.
I'll race you for a beer or two.
Probably need a swim after. Spear a fish for dinner.
I love secret beaches the best.

Nice spot JZ. Might check it out next year but I have got a lot of other secret beaches to check out😎

Put Puerto Los Gatos north of Tembabichi on your list for next year.
