Sailing Baja California

Washed by the sea, the Baja California peninsula extends 660 miles south of the Californian border. It’s bounded on the east by the Gulf of California, which separates the peninsula from the rest of Mexico. In the west, the Pacific Ocean formed some shallow bays and spits of land. Made up primarily of mountains and some coastal plains, the landscape is a patchwork of lava flows. The natural surroundings of the Baja California Peninsula with its semi-desert landscape in shades of ocher, contrasting with the deep blue of the Pacific Ocean leaves one in awe. And every night, as sunlight withdraws from the region, there are intense changing colors painting both sea and sky in pinks and blues.
