In between catching some rays or splashing about in the sea, visitors can also eat or drink in the many nearby beach bars.
  • Malecón Fundadores: Stretching alongside the Mexican coast, the Malecon Fundadores is one of the most spectacular attractions in the city. Popular amongst locals and tourists alike, the Malecon is a place where one can nurse a cerveza, chow down on croquetas, or soak in the tranquil serenity by the waterfront with the spray of the sea and the smell of salt.

Popular Destinations Near Rocky Point

  • Rosarito: Located 16 kilometers south of the U.S. border and situated southwest to Tijuana, Rosarito is a stunning coastal city that was once the preferred Mexican getaway of the Hollywood elite. The creme de la creme of “Golden Age Hollywood” which included Ava Gardner, Rita Hayworth, and Katharine Hepburn all chose Rosarito as their favored Latin sanctuary, away from the flashes of bulbs and pushy paparazzi in Los Angeles. Today, the beaches, dance clubs, and an endless list of outdoor activities attract young and beautiful people from the States, especially during long weekends and holidays.
  • Tijuana: Rough and ready are the buzzwords when it comes to describing the city of Tijuana. Gritty and rakish, the city is a far cry away from the paradisal golden beaches and flavorful colorful streets that one normally flocks to Mexico for. However, the authentically hedonistic Mexican spirit entrenches itself into every corner of “The Gateway to Mexico,” attracting tourists like moths to a brightly burning flame. Visitors can discover a varied cocktail of amenities from a lively nightlife scene to a burgeoning array of sophisticated restaurants and bars. Contemporary art galleries and eclectic cafes line the pasajes, while several other districts are nuclei of upscale elegance and super-hip coolness.
