Punta Chivato

Located 12 miles North of Mulege. Turnoff to beach is in the tiny highway village of Palo Verde. Look for large sign on west side of hwy 1. Graded dirt road. Twelve miles in length. Road surface varies from good to horrible (washboard). There are two beaches to choose from. The main camping beach past the hotel has running water, pit toilets and no hookups. Cost is ten dollars per day. No shade.

Punta Arena

Located 11 miles south of Mulege on hwy 1. Look for small sign on your left. Remote beach, mix of sand and gravel. No services. More exposed than more southerly beaches, which is good in very warm weather, and not so good for most of the winter months. Seven Dollars per day.

Service water is available in downtown Mulege at both tiny plazas. Purified water plants are found near the downtown Pemex station and under the bridge. Bulk ice is sold at the plant 2 miles west of town. Look for the "Hielo" sign. Mulege has several small grocery stores. "Sauls'" (saw-ools') tienda, can obtain just about any item that you wish to order from the USA. It takes about three days and his prices are very reasonable. You'll have to drive north to Santa Rosalia in order to conduct banking business, or fill permanently mounting RV propane tanks.

[Editor's Note: While the access to the described beaches is generally good, we'd suggest you check the road carefully for portions which may be a bit challenging due to soft sand. Many of the beaches have numerous access routes, some definitely more suitable for non-4WD vehicles.]
