The World’s second longest peninsula at over 700 miles, bursting with craggy volcanic islands, vast deserts and stunning coasts. Baja California is the ultimate beach destination with a difference! The area also boasts some of the finest and most varied marine life available, take your chance to spot grey whales and kayak alongside sea lions and turtles!
