Isla Espiritu Santo and Isla Partida

 

 

 

 

If you are traveling in Baja California Sur in the vicinity of La Paz, Mexico, don´t pass up the chance to see the islands of Espiritu Santo and Partida. Both of these islands are connected by a narrow isthmus and  can be reached by arranging a powerboat tour or by a kayak trip which is about 4 miles away from the La Paz area.  These islands  are protected by UNESCO as bioshperes and are popular eco-tourism destinations.

While there are a variety of recreational opportunities both in and out of the water; the highlights include diving, snorkeling, kayaking, sea lion colonies and hot springs.  In addition, Isla Partida has  one of the world´s top 12 beaches called Ensenada Grande which has spectacular red rock formations, white sands and clear water.
