The bay of Ensenada Grande is a remarkable natural wonder located on Isla Partida. Partida is within throwing distance of Isla Espiritu Santo. Ensenada Grande is a secluded bay renowned for its pristine beaches, clear turquoise water, and unique geological formations. This incredible bay was named the best island beach in Mexico by the Department of Tourism.
To reach Ensenada Grande, visitors can take a boat from La Paz, the nearest city on the Baja mainland. The boat ride offers breathtaking views of the surrounding sea and islands. Upon arrival, visitors are greeted by the striking sight of Ensenada Grande's towering cliffs and calm, sheltered bay.
One of the most distinctive features of this amazing beach, bay, and cove, is the geology of the surrounding terrain. The cliffs that enclose the bay are formed of ancient volcanic rock that has been weathered over millions of years to create striking formations, including arches, caves, and overhangs. These geological wonders provide an impressive backdrop to the clean clear waters and beautiful white sand beaches of the bay. It’s a great place for snorkeling and kayaking.
The Sea of Cortez is one of the most biologically rich and diverse marine environments in the world, and Ensenada Grande is no exception. Visitors can see a wide variety of fish, including colorful reef fish and larger game fish such as tuna and marlin. The waters around the bay are home to the amazing mobula rays, frequently called Devil Rays or Jumping Rays, that seem to fly up out of the water and glide back to a landing on the surface of the sea. There is an abundance of sea turtles. Sightings of whales and dolphins are common.
Ensenada Grande is an excellent destination for beach lovers and a wonderful location to set anchor and spend a night or two. The main beach is a long stretch of white sand that curves gently around the bay. It offers plenty of space for sunbathing, swimming, and relaxing. Its unique geological formations, transparent waters, and diverse marine life, make this place a paradise for nature lovers.
