Just traveled to San Quintin this last weekend and was a bit dissapointed with the valley of San Quintin itself. Nothing to do, no camping áreas only one access to the beach through the Old Mill área but is really not worth swimming in and is a bit dirty. For beautiful beach areas you must drive to the outer parts... More

It,s quite far away from the higway but is a beautiful place to be.. the ocean looks great and the sea lions are fun to watch.

This shouldn't even be advertised. The road is closed, but even if you manage to walk trough, you will get to a surveillance booth and a fence that forbids access. The place is private now.

It's a pretty cool place to visit for many reasons. It used to be a natural cave, but the top fell through forming something like a stadium size ocean water pool with a beach and sea lions. This is quite unique. But there are a few more reasons to get there. The coast is rugged and beautiful, the road goes... More

Wow! We though we were just going to see some sea lions but we also got to walk on the edge of the world! Beautiful rock formations, birds, patterns in rocks, 30 pesos to park, the view was priceless!! Eh also cultivate seafood near, and you can watch them farm lobsters. Amazing. I wish I was still there. Bring a... More
