Salsipuedes Surf Guide
Salsipuedes is a great surfing and camping destination in the middle of an amazing stretch of pristine, unspoiled Baja coastline. Salsipuedes is actually a small point that juts out, creating two completely different surf spots. The north side of the point has a reef break that can get fun on a north-northwest swell and produce a shifty peak. The wave is fun for surfers at the intermediate level and up. The kelp beds just outside of the break keep the bay fairly clean and glassy here when the north wind kicks up. There are some rocky spots on the inside, so use caution when the tide is medium/low. On the south side of the point is a heavy righthand pointbreak that needs a huge north/northwest swell in order to break. This wave is for advanced surfers only and will normally require a bigger board to be surfed. It rarely breaks here, but when it does it is impressive. Salsipuedes is actually on private land which makes parking your car and camping here safe and secure. If you want to park for the day it will cost $5, camping is $8 per night and if you want a cabin they will run $35 per night. To get to Salsipuedes, take the toll road south from Tijuana for roughly an hour until you see the signs. It is a clearly marked exit from the toll road. This is perhaps one of the few spots between Rosarito and Ensenada where you might consider bringing a 4 wheel drive vehicle, especially in the winter. The dirt road can get to be impassible after a heavy rain.
