Salsipuedes is an excellent right point break that only breaks on bigger swells. Salsipuedes breaks better at lower tides. When Salsipuedes is working, this right point gets extremely heavy and juicy, it is not for beginners. Salsipuedes has the best camping and gnarliest access road north of Ensenada. Both waves break on any swell direction, but the point needs to be 6 to 8 feet to work. The road to Salsipuedes is very steep, and its dirt, so any kind of rain and the road back out gets very hard to manage. This is what its name means: "Leave if you can." Parking or camping is $5-$10.
- Location: Km 87, just 51 miles south of the border on the toll road, take the Salsipuedes exit then journey down onto the tortuous dirt road to the beach.
- Swell Direction: Salsipuedes breaks best on big summer South's, but it can handle most swells. Don't even bother checking it if the waves are small everywhere else.
