This Ensenada shore excursion is perfect for nature lovers & bird watchers

Discover shorebirds in their natural environment and hike on isolated trails, either by beautiful cliffs or a mellow estuary on this one-of-a-kind excursion that’s ideal for outdoor enthusiasts.

The extensive estuary next to Ensenada hides a beautiful, virtually unknown strip of sand, dividing the ambiance of the never-resting beach from the calm inlet waters.

This is the perfect place to observe all the species of shorebirds that either live or pass along Baja California. A beautiful, mellow place. This is an easy to moderate hike, suitable for people in good health.

The peninsula of Punta Banda guarantees great photos, any time, every day, so don’t forget to pack your camera. Although the area is known primarily for its famous Bufadora, the beauty of its young coastline offers much more: Its capricious line and steep gorges give place to prominent coves, caves, and islets that shower with every wave, offering an additional dramatic touch to the hiking experience.
