A must-not-miss stop in the Todos Santos area is called Punta Lobos with an iconic Baja beach that was carved out of the local coastal topography and often frequented by surfers as well as tourists where they can ride horseback on the beach and watch whales pass by during their migration periods.
The beach is also used by local fishermen where they launch their pangas each day, but not before stopping at a small, nearby chapel where they leave offerings to the Saints, praying for a safe and bountiful day of work on the seas.
Off-road / ATV tours are also offered in the area.
Popular Hiking Trail
The area also offers a 5.3 km, round trip trail near that is generally considered a relatively easy hike with only a 40 meter rise in elevation, usually requiring an hour or less for most hikers to complete.
The start of the trail is located on the south side of the Hotel San Cristóbal and is popular for bird watching, sight seeing and general exercise as well as offering some truly amazing photo ops from the elevated view point at the end of the trail.
Another trail in the area – the Sugar Port Trail – is also popular but more difficult with a 122 meters increase in elevation over the course of the trail.
