Scorpion Bay Surf Guide

Two thirds of the way down Baja is one of the most talked about surf destinations on the peninsula. On the outskirts of the sleepy fishing village of San Juanico lies the legendary Scorpion Bay. It takes the better part of two days to get here, so plan your travel dates and route accordingly. The most direct route is taking the north road in where Highway 1 meets San Ignacio, but depending on the road conditions the east road or the south road might be a better option. All three roads are dirt so a truck or SUV with four wheel drive is recommended. It is advisable to ask about current road conditions on BajaNomad.com, as a little insight could save you a lot of time.

Scorpion Bay has definitely changed over the years. Heaps of new development has changed the once desolate points into a bustling surf camp, complete with a restaurant, bar and restrooms right on the water. What hasn’t changed is surf itself: Three perfect point breaks in a row that fire off right handers on a big south swell. During a big south, Scorpion Bay is everything you could ask for….minute long rides, warm water, prevailing offshore winds and plenty of fresh fish to eat after your marathon sessions. Perhaps the hardest thing about Scorpion Bay is staying occupied when the surf is small, because it is hot, desolate and dusty with not much else to do unless you have a camper with a TV and DVD player. Bring a longboard for the smaller days to keep busy. If you are feeling adventurous when the points are not on you can hike north and find some reefs that will pick up more of a west swell, although they tend to blow out by the late morning hours due to the prevailing north winds.
