Heavy winter swells travel from northwest to southeast daily along the
entire Pacific coast of the Baja peninsula. With the exception of Hawaii
and San Francisco, the waves at Islas Todos Santos off the coast of
Ensenada are said to be the biggest in the winter Pacific. Unless you're
ready to join the pro circuit, you're better off heading to one of the
following five surf spots

breaks are less crowded the
farther south you go.
Wallow in connect-the-dots tube rides
at this beach break 15 miles south of the border. Drop in, watch the lip
heave, and fly out to the hoots of your buddies on the shoulder. Not for
beginners, this potent wave works summer and winter, and it's best at
medium to low tide. Take the Baja Malibu exit from the toll road and park
on the dead-end street on the north side of the Baja Malibu housing
Six miles south of Rosarito
Beach on the free road (Old Highway 1), this right point reels on a
south. It's worth checking during a big north, too. Booties will help you
painlessly navigate Calafia's sharp rocks. You'll surf beneath the
terraces of the Calafia Resort, which offers ocean-view dining and
lodging. To reserve a wave-front room for approximately $55 per night,
Salsipuedes, which boasts a
right point and a bowly reef peak, has the best camping and gnarliest
access road north of Ensenada. Both waves break on any swell direction,
but the point needs 6 to 8 feet to work. Five bucks a night gets you
camping in a grove of olive trees that feels like it's a million miles
from the nearest fax machine. Located 51 miles south of the border on the
toll road, take the Salsipuedes exit onto the tortuous dirt road to the
beach. Leave if you can (sale, ...si puedes) when it's raining.
It's not worth checking if the surf is small.
surfer gets ready to ride a righteous swell at San Miguel. This rare
photo op features a background full of yachts finishing in the
Newport Beach to Ensenada International Yacht Race.
A crowded, thrillingly racy
point break, San Miguel is one of Baja's premier waves. This right-hander
is best during a west or northwest swell. It's more hollow but more
sectiony at low tide.
The San Miguel turnoff is
immediately after the last toll booth before Ensenada, 61 miles from the
border. Pitch a tent on the beach for eight bucks a night. For a few more
dollars, RVs can plug into one of 30 hookups. Hot showers take the grunge
out of camping here. Call 011-52-61-746225 for information. There's also a
restaurant on the point, but it's worth driving the eight miles south for
Ensenada's culinary riches. But be sure to check out the San Miguel Bar,
which used to be frequent hangout for Jim Morrison.

Punta San Jose
True Baja begins south of
Ensenada. To taste its desolate beauty, spend a few days at Punta San
Jose, a series of reef breaks that becomes one sweeping right when a swell
fires. It's best on a south or a huge west swell, when the prevailing wind
To get there, drive south from Ensenada through the verdant Santo Tomas
wine-growing valley. Twenty-nine miles beyond Ensenada, turn west onto a
dirt road at the town of Santo Tomas. (If you need food or water, buy it
here, because there's nothing but surf and star-filled skies at Punta San
Jose.) Fourteen miles from Santo Tomas, bear right at a fork in the road
and drive 10 miles to a lighthouse. Local fishermen collect $5 to camp,
and will sell you fresh lobster for about the same sum.
