In its infancy Rocky Point started out as small fishing village. Before all of the tourism, Rocky Point’s economy was upheld by hardworking fisherman and their families. About 20 years ago, the condos you see now on Sandy Beach were built and brought about a new wave of tourism. This wave of tourism helped bolster the local economy and bring more opportunities to the locals.
Rocky Point stands today as one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. There is no other ocean like the Sea of Cortez. With stunning tide changes, bountiful wildlife and beautiful sunsets, it’s truly one of the best places to go on vacation.
When you come to vacation to Rocky Point you don’t just have to stick to Sandy Beach, or the bars in Old Port. There are countless things to do in the surrounding area such as rent an ATV and explore the san dunes, go check out the Pinacate Reserve, or fly over the entire area in an ultralight.
When visiting Rocky Point for the first time, it’s best to stay in Sandy Beach. There are several incredible resorts to stay at such as Princesa de Peñasco, Sonoran Sun, or Las Palomas. Each resort sits directly on the beach and is seconds walking from the Sea of Cortez. Undoubtedly, when you are thinking of your next vacation, Rocky Point should be very high on the list.
