Bahia de los Angeles was discovered in  1746 by Jesuit father Fernando Consag, in his attempt to find an easier and faster way to the Sea of Cortez to supply the missionaries that occupied the San Francisco de Borja Mission, which was located on the top of a mountain 35 kilometers from the bay.


At 480 kilometers south of Ensenada, on the Transpeninsular Highway between Ensenada and La Paz, is the tourist rest area of Punta Prieta in the Central Desert of Baja California. There is a well-marked junction heading east that takes you to Bahía de los Angeles, just 66 km. from the main highway. Also, the village of Bahia de los Angeles has two runways for small airplanes.


Distinguished for being one of the most beautiful bays of Mexico, Bahia de Los Angeles is formed by a narrow sandy point backed by the rocky mountains of Calamajue and San Jose. Protecting the bay is Isla del Angel de la Guarda (Guardian Angel Island) making the sea calm and peaceful. Other islands close to the bay are Coronado, Ventana and Cabeza de Caballo. Perhaps the presence of nature's power and beauty at Bahia de los Angeles is still intact because the hand of man hasn't touched it yet.  Currently, Bahia de los Angeles has a population of just 500 friendly inhabitants. But offers the services of hotels, restaurants, trailer parks, a launch ramp, gas station, grocery stores, a pharmacy, a museum, and a medical clinic. Also as a tradition in a many Mexican towns, Bahia de los Angeles village has its central plaza. The weather is pleasant and balmy most of the year; July and August are the hottest months.


The main activities for Bahia de los Angeles is fishing and tourism. If you enjoy sport fishing and diving, Bahia de los Angeles offers you the opportunity to practice both with its great variety of marine flora and fauna. You will find corvina, grouper, seabass, sailfish, roosterfish, snook, yellowtail, etc. Other exciting water sports that you can enjoy are skiing and windsurfing, taking advantage of the windy days. Also you can rent a boat to make an observation trip to admire the beautiful surrounding areas where you'll see a great variety of birds, sealions, dolphins and whales during winter. A visit to the local museum is always interesting and educational because it presents both history and a collection of arts and crafts of the Cochimi Indians and the Central Desert of Baja. If you enjoy history and tours, at 45 kilometers from Bahia de los Angeles you'll find the mission of San Francisco de Borja Adac, built in 1762t. You can also see the Indias de Montevideo paintings (approximately 10,000 years of age according to archaelogical studies), located 15 kilometers from the highway. The warm starry nights of Bahia de los Angeles invite you to camp on any of the many beaches it offer. Also you can hike, mountain bike and horse back ride.
