You can’t talk about Rosarito without talking about Golf. Located between two golf courses, Rosarito is one of the best locations in Baja for Golf lovers from the states. To the north, the Real Del Mar course is located on the scenic road between Playas de Tijuana and Rosarito Beach. It is an 18 hole course with range that also has 76 hotel suites for visiting golf fans. BajaMar is located on the scenic road south of Rosarito and has 27 holes and 81 rooms for guest. Most Rosarito hotels have special golf packages for their guest.
While Dad’s playing golf, one of the most popular activities for the younger visitor is Surfing. Rosarito has some excellent breaks including Baja Malibu, Calafia and the world famous K38. Once away from the Rosarito Beach resorts, the beaches and scenery become wilder and more scenic, and many Baja surf spots are completely empty.
An ideal place for shopping, in Rosarito you’ll discover traditional Mexican crafts, hand blown glass, quality leather goods, silver jewelry and much more in our artisan shops. Furniture stores, wrought iron, pottery, marble and handmade goods are plentiful all around town.
Whale watching is another popular pastime, and the Gray Whale is the most common species seen near the coast of Rosarito Beach. The Grey Whales swim in shallow waters seeking Baja’s many lagoons for calving, and many of them travel near Rosarito as they pass by, and it’s not uncommon to see spouts from the beach.
