Many beaches may claim to have white sand and turquoise waters, and many do. But few have either to quite the same degree as the beach on Isla Coronado in Baja. Just a short boat trip from the popular coastal town of Loreto this beautiful little island is easy enough to get to but never busy.

The crystal clear water here makes it a great spot for snorkeling with tropical fish abounding in the shallows. There are also pelicans, sea lions and even dolphins if you’re lucky.

And it isn’t just the wildlife that take advantage of the lack of people on Coronado Island. This is one of a number of recognised, although by no means official, nude beaches in Baja.

When you’ve seen enough marine life and put your clothes back on it is well worth exploring this little island. There is a nature trail around the coast and dormant volcano to explore.

One thing to remember is to bring everything you need with you (and take it all back with you). There aren’t any facilities here beyond a basic restroom so you’ll need water and plenty of sun block.
