Mexico: Baja California

Baja is that knobbly finger of desert stretching 1,300km south from California, separated from the Mexican mainland by the Sea of Cortés. Arid, sun-scorched and cut through by canyons, it is sparsely populated: the interior is peppered with colonial Jesuit missions and cave paintings, but it’s the southern coast, with its chalk-white sand beaches and translucent aquamarine seas, which attracts most of the visitors. The attractive Gulf coast colonial town of Loreto is unspoilt and a great holiday base, as is La Paz.

With between 300-360 days of sunshine per year it’s a magnet for winter holidays. It’s during this season too that grey and humpback whales congregate to breed in the lagoons here.

What our experts say

While it's true that the southern tip of Baja California is a magnet for spring breakers and ex-Pats from the US, there are plenty of unspoilt little towns to visit such as colonial Loreto and the interior of the peninsula is as remote as you can find anywhere with tiny isolated farms at the end of dirt tracks. The peninsula towns are also a magnet for artists and there are many galleries and craftshops. As I did, combine exploring these with time on the beach, whale-watching and kayaking and you have a fully rounded holiday.
