About Scorpion Bay

Well documented super-point that needs S to W swell to infiltrate the deep bay at San Juanico and peel along any of up to 7 righthand points. Can link up the various numbered points if the swell is big enough to produce rides of up to 2km! More afternoon onshore wind protection at points 1-3 inside the bay while further out towards Punta Pequena sees more size. Down sides include shallow when small, urchins, crowds, grumpy expats, long flat spells, expensive camping, no services, 14 hour gruelling road trip from USA, dust and of course scorpions.

14 hours drive from US border - 4 x 4 advisable
