Rocky Point, being a coastal town, is well known for its seafood. Keep your eye out for these local specialties: ceviche, which is fresh raw fish cured in lemon or lime juice and spiced with ají or chili peppers; Costa Brava Shrimp, which are locally-caught shrimp wrapped in bacon and seasoned with a honey-wine sauce; and the Pescado Zarandeado, which is fresh fish seasoned with onion, garlic and hot peppers, then char-grilled in a banana leaf. Some top Rocky Point restaurants include:

  • Aqui Es Con Flavio: This waterfront eatery specializes in classic Mexican seafood dishes. All of the seafood here is locally sourced and the portions are generous, so you won’t leave be leaving here with an empty stomach! This restaurant is a great place to experience regional cuisine and enjoy a beautiful sunset.
  • Portofino: For anyone who is a pasta lover, make sure to step inside Portofino for a nice lunch or dinner at some point during your trip. Portofino has made a name for itself as the destination for Italian cuisine in Rocky Point.
  • The Point Restaurant: Architecturally unique, The Point is one of the most famous places to dine in Rocky Point. This Rocky Point restaurant stands out not only due to its interesting location–elevated by stilts right over the water–but mainly for its food.

Rocky Point Beaches

From soaking in the sun to snorkeling, here are some of the best Rocky Point beach spots:

  • Sandy Beach: Also known as Playa Arenosa, this Rocky Point beach sits at the southern edge of the La Cholla peninsula. Beachgoers love this spot for the clamming, snorkeling, water skiing, parasailing, jet skiing, surfing, and just lounging in the sun.
  • La Cholla: This small, secluded beach can be found at the end of a little peninsula that gently juts into the Sea of Cortez at the end of Cholla Bay and Laguna del Mar.
  • Mirador Beach: This beach is the closest to the oldest parts of downtown Rocky Point, which puts it in a prime location for tourists. Mirador Beach offers a wider diversity of terrain than other Rocky Point beaches, with both sandy and rocky shores. When night rolls around, you will want to be here, as most of Rocky Point’s hot nightlife locations–such as Manny’s, Pink Cadillac, the Baja Cantina–sit along Mirador Beach.
