SEVENTEEN SPECTACULAR MILES

by Connie Ellig of the Ensenada Gazette


In haste to reach their final destinations, travelers often neglect to explore the spectacular seventeen miles between La Salina and San Miguel.  Along this toll road coastline are some of northern Baja’s most enticing beaches, majestic cliffs and enchanting ocean views, all of which serve to enhance a series of unique establishments catering to both tourists and area residents.


BAJA SEASONS AND LA SALINA


Situated on a sandy beach at Km. 72, Baja Seasons RV & Villas Resort is popular year round.  In addition to 140 full service RV sites, there are ten attractive villas and cabanas with kitchens only steps from the beach.  Among the resort’s amenities are a beachfront pool and spa, sauna, rec room, mini-market, lighted tennis courts and miniature golf.  Open from 7:30AM-10PM, Restaurant Seasons features an extensive menu of reasonably priced international and Mexican dishes, and live music Thurs.-Sun. from 7-11PM.  For information or reservations call 1-800-754-4190.


Stretching along both sides of the highway near the Km. 73 cloverleaf is Puerto Salina, an extensive 165-acre development.  The master plan includes two full-service marinas with 550 slips, a resort hotel, sport and beach clubs and exclusive residential are overlooking an artificial lake.  Lots are as low as $40,000 with financing available.  The sales office is open from 10AM-5PM.


Also at Km. 73 is Motel La Salina with eight modest rooms only a short walk from the beach.  The restaurant/bar overlooks the volleyball court, horseshoe pits and playground, and provides a restful spot to enjoy Pacific sunsets.


BAJAMAR


Extending along four miles of rugged coastline, the 1,600-acre Bajamar at the Km. 77.5 cloverleaf is northern Baja’s premier oceanfront golf resort, renowned for its challenging championship Scottish links-style course designed by Robert Von Hagge.


Open to the public from 6AM-10:30PM, Restaurant Dos Lagos offers seafood and regional Mexican cuisine including an “all you can eat” Friday evening International Buffet and Saturday Mexican Buffet.  Weekends also feature live music from 7PM-12AM in the adjoining Sand Trap Bar, and Sunset Happy Hour from 4-8PM atop the panoramic El Mirador Bar.


Surrounded by well-manicured gardens, Hotel Hacienda Las Glorias features Mexican colonial style architecture including an exquisite central courtyard.  There are 81 spacious rooms and suites (with kitchens) with satellite TV, heating, air conditioning and private terraces.  Additional amenities include a heated pool, Jacuzzi, sauna, steam room, tennis courts and children’s playground.  Manager Fernando Cerda and his staff welcome you to Bajamar.


EL MIRADOR AND SOUTH


With convenient north and south access, El Mirador Vista Point presents an enticing view of the Pacific coast and Todos Santos Islands.  Take a break and relax with a picnic lunch, let the kids romp on the playground or savor a meal at the multi-terraced restaurant/bar.


Both Rancho Salsipuedes (Km. 87 cloverleaf) and Playa Saldamando (Km. 94) offer excellent oceanfront rustic campsites suitable for a day of leisure or an extended stay.  Just past the Saldamando entrance is the newly constructed whale watching point and rest stop with yet another captivating view of the coastline.


Take the time to experience this scenic section of Baja – before it passes you by.
