Josh and Jonna in a Ford Ranger joined Kristi, Elizabeth and I on a weekend of fun in the sun on Shell Island. This was Kristi's first trip to Baja with us and it was a success at introducing her to Baja.
During low tide, we enjoy looking for shells and other sea creatures that show themselves.
From San Diego, go east on I-8 to El Centro then south on 111 to Calexico/Mexicali. San Felipe is 125 miles south of Mexicali. Returning north, we take Hwy. 2-D to Tecate and return to the U.S. there.
Shell Island access is about 21 highway miles south of San Felipe's traffic circle. The sandy access road is by Km. 26 and goes 2 miles, crosses the tidal flats (if not underwater) and onto the beach. The island is 4 miles long. From the road, it is 1 mile to the south tip (Bahia Santa Maria entrance) and 3 miles to the north tip (Estero Percebu entrance).
