Pangas On The Beach
Included in its many attractive tourist attractions, San Felipe offers silken and golden sandy beaches that include areas with sections of boulders and volcanic rock that provide a nice diversion to beach strollers. This makes for great clam hunting on a sunny afternoon. The dunes, the desert flora, and the mountains that surround San Felipe offer a spectacular panorama. Once called the totoaba paradise, named after a giant species of sea bass now protected, fishing enthusiasts still flock to this Sea of Cortez port, because of its great sports fishing.
The small village of San Felipe is located on the north end of the Sea of Cortez within what is known as the Sonoran Desert, a mere 120 miles south of Calexico and Mexicali on the International border between Yuma and San Diego.
It became one of many fishing villages on the Sea of Cortez to attract fisherman from north of the border, and enticing them with an unlimited supply of shark, yellowtail, roosterfish, totuava, Pacific striped marlin, scorpion fish, stingrays, barracuda, and dozens of other species. The Sea of Cortez has been called the Aquarium of the World.
