Surfing Magdalena Bay
Mag Bay is very hard to get to and very secluded, Isla Magdalena, 'Mag Bay" is a rocky point break with strong offshore winds prevailing. Magdalena Bay is the place to go if you want perfect waves and absolutely 0 crowds. Three right point breaks: Cuevas, Campsites and Bathtubs. Cuevas is the best out of the three, Cuevas is the most consistent break it also catches almost any swell. Cuevas can also handle triple overhead surf. You can only access Magdalena Bay by boat or by plane, so it is best to bring food and supplies, because there are no stores on Mag Bay. There are tour companies that set up all inclusive packages, but make not that you will not be staying in 5 star accommodations, you will be camping on the beach or in small shacks. You really cannot go wrong at Mag Bay, there is usually good surf 150 days out of the year.
- Location: The best way to get there is by air. Fly into Loreto, then catch a ride to Puerto San Carlos. Then catch the ferry to Puerto Magdalena, the break is located at the base camp of Isla Magdalena.
- Swell Direction: Best on Souths or big Wests.
