Vizcaino Loop - Punta Abreojos

Vizcaino Loop

Next I made a big clockwise loop of the Vizcaino peninsula. I started at Punta Abreojos, and intended to finish by trying to get over to Malarrimo Beach from the west.

Campo Rene

Six miles before arriving at the town of Punta Abreojos is a sand bar with extensive long flat white empty sandy beaches. See in Google Maps See in Google Earth  26.7914, -113.5059

At the end of this spit is Campo Rene, on Estero El Coyote. Is that a coyote in the lagoon?

Punta Abreojos

There is a 10-mile long sand bar extending northwest from Punta Abreojos. For the first 5 miles, there is a road - which ends at a fishing spot on Estero la Bocana See in Google Maps See in Google Earth  26.7384, -113.6436 . I passed the first of many "vigilancia" shacks I would come to see dotting the coastline all along Vizcaino. These are manned by guards enforcing fish anti-poaching laws.

For privacy, I drove along the beach a mile past the end of the road, and camped between some dunes. See in Google Maps See in Google Earth  26.7474, -113.6505
