"A quiet seaside town." San Felipe by dabuwan

San Felipe Travel Guide: 51 reviews and 118 photos

San Felipe is a quiet town on the eastern shore of northern Baja California. Mexicali and the US border are about 160 Kms to the north. Its population is about 25000 inhabitants, including many US retirees. The landscape around San Felipe is pretty desertic, with typical cactus vegetation. The climate is warm all year round (hot in summer). There is a good beach in town, but it is mainly used by the local boat owners. The long beaches at the north or south of town are much better for swimming.

    looks like an interesting place with the right kind of weather, as we would need it now in Europe...
