Rosarito Beach
Vacation Travel Guide

Experience the buzzing atmosphere of the resort city’s main beach and spend the day playing on the sandy shores, swimming or relaxing with an icy-cold drink.

Rosarito Beach is one of the city’s main draws. This broad sweep of sand fronts the city center and is a hive of activity day and night. Spend the day exploring the sandy shoreline and enjoying the range of fun-filled adventures on offer. Relax under the shade of a beach umbrella while sipping the juice from a freshly cracked coconut.

Take a walk along Rosarito Beach’s pleasant shoreline. The beach is quite small, so it’s easy to discover what’s happening during your visit. Pick a spot on the sand and bathe in the warm sunshine. Have a refreshing swim in the cool waters of the Pacific Ocean. Look up and down the beach, taking in the views of brightly colored beach umbrellas and vendor stalls.

There are plenty of exciting activities to choose from on Rosarito Beach. Horses and ponies are available to ride along the beach. Paragliding and light-craft tours are ideal for experiencing a breathtaking bird’s-eye view of the gorgeous coastline. While the gentle waters don’t offer much to keen surfers, the conditions are often perfect for stand-up paddleboarding.

Check out the range of refreshments at the vendor stalls that line the beach. Pick from seafood shacks to taco stands and vibrant bars selling tequila and margaritas. Alternatively, watch as your server slices the top off a fresh coconut and enjoy a re-energizing coconut juice.

The waterfront bars at Rosarito Beach are perfectly placed for watching an unforgettable sunset over the Pacific Ocean. Look out over the water and the Baja Californian skyline as you enjoy your evening meal. If you feel like dancing the night away, Rosarito Beach has a range of pulsing clubs and bars.

Rosarito Beach is situated directly in front of Rosarito’s exciting Centro district downtown. Be sure to wear shoes when walking along the beach and keep an eye on your valuables. Many high-rise hotels and luxury resorts are within easy walking distance from the beach. Street parking is available.
