One Beach Rental

Relaxed camping and playing from the beach!

Enjoy a motorboat shuttle to a beach, play for 2-3 days, and get picked up from the same beach. You never have to pack a kayak, lending this option to a more relaxed style of camping. Limit 2 nights on each beach, per National Park regulations.

Choose stable Sit-on-top kayaks, Stand-up Paddleboards, or (with experience) plastic Romany Sport sea kayaks.

One Beach Rental Locations

Isla Coronados

Featuring white sand beaches at the foot of a volcano, Isla Coronados is the most popular, most accessible, and probably the most stunning place to spend a night or two. It is close by. Come late afternoon, the day visitors drift away and a peace settles over the island. You can walk the long sandy beach. Bask in the afterglow of a sunset that is all yours. Isla Coronados has several hiking trails.

Isla del Carmen

Several beaches beckon from across the water. Puerto Ballandra, Playa Roja, and Mesa de Piedra are all unique and scenic beaches on Isla del Carmen’s western shores. Since the island is privately owned and also used for hunting Bighorn sheep, hiking is not permitted except along the beaches.

Puerto Ballandra is the most protected and often harbors sailboats. Several pocket beaches lie within the bay and invite exploration. A small lagoon is worth investigating by kayak as well. A sunken barge and a hill of fossilized coral add to the interest of the bay. Snorkeling is very accessible–shallow and near the shore, and a surprising number of little fish can be seen near the rocky areas.

Playa Roja is beach of coarse red sand and gravel. It has a beautiful view of Isla Coronados, and the lights of Loreto glimmer at night. A rocky reef protects it somewhat from the north, and offers a place to play in kayaks. An osprey nest perches on top of a red pinnacle on the west end of the beach. There is interesting snorkeling along the reef and in front of the osprey nest, but do leave them enough space so they don’t screech at you.

At Mesa de Piedra, coarse black sand mixes with small gravel in a cozy amphitheater. The beach faces north with a long rock shelf on one side. For those who like to explore the shoreline but not get wet, the shelf is a great place to wander about and peer into the sea, and a great place to fish. The snorkeling is also excellent around the rock shelf. Ravens tend to frequent this place, and there is a small cave in the rock that you can scramble up into if you’re nimble. The beach lies at the south end of a large bay, offering extensive beach walking.

Isla Danzante

A place of geological fantasy, Isla Danzante invites your imagination to play. Snorkeling is also very good. Honeymoon Bay beaches on the west offer the most protected paddling and snorkeling, as well as a nature trail to a scenic overlook. The sunrise beaches on the east side are rough underfoot, but make for amazing pre-dawn paddling opportunities to watch the sun’s first rays descend Danzante’s fanciful spires. Southern beaches provide access to the longest hiking trail on the island, and a good likelihood of seeing a pod of dolphins pass by. Danzante Island has the most beaches per mile of coastline, so beach-hopping by kayak or SUP is a great way to appreciate its steep, crumbly, dramatic terrain.
