Facts about Bahia de Los Angeles
Bahia de Los Angeles is a small fishing village situated alongside the Sea of Cortez.

The bay is dotted with spectacular mountains that stretch far and wide and the expanse of the sapphire waters extend as far as the eyes go.

Its numerous islands were created by volcanic upheavals and are unpopulated. Angel de la Guarda, Ventana and Encantada are some of the most notorious islands.

The hundreds of miles of coastal cliffs, beaches and coves are still as untouched as they were centuries ago.

Within this vast location is the premier biosphere reserve of the Ensenada municipality, in Baja California. It covers federal zone, beaches, cliffs, wetlands, bays, and the sea area surrounding the large Angel de la Guarda island.
