The Gulf of California extend for hundreds of miles along the Baja coast.

The entire region is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, calling the area “one of striking natural beauty in a dramatic setting formed by rugged islands with high cliffs and sandy beaches, which contrast with the brilliant reflection from the desert and the surrounding turquoise waters.”

Among the most scenic areas, with bays and islands, is the stretch of about 80 miles (130 km) between two coastal towns, both of which make good bases for the exploring the region:

1. Mulege (north) is near the idyllic bay, Bahía de Concepción, famouse for its beaches and kayaing.

2. Loreto (south) is near several islands that make great multi-day getaways and can be reached in several ways (private boat, kayak, etc).

Overall Atmosphere: Natural
A Natural Atmosphere includes a diverse range of destinations with outdoor-oriented features, including both water-based (beaches, rivers, lakes, etc) and land-based (mountains, forests, deserts, etc). It also includes specific outdoor activities, ranging from water adventuring (eg, kayaking, sailing) to land adventuring (eg, hiking, biking).

Natural Interests tend to be:
(a) outdoors-oriented, and therefore more dependent on weather conditions
(b) less easily accessible and more physically demanding than other destination categories.

In some cases (eg, rafting and climbing), this includes a significantly increased degree of adventure (or danger, depending on one's viewpoint).
Featuring mainly outdoors-oriented natural attractions.
