Solmar Beach is a nonswimming beach, due to dangerous riptides. There are no lifeguards on the beach, but signs are posted, warning of the dangerous riptides and undertows. The signs also warn against walking along in the surf. After watching the ocean here, one realizes why these warnings are posted. The water is extremely turbulent. The wave action can sound like thunder.
Solmar Beach is beautiful for walking. There are often local guides at the end of the beach who can be hired for a small fee to escort one over the rocks to the other side of the point. Lover's Beach, a swimming beach, is located on the other side of this stretch of rocks, along the Sea of Cortez. One will hear differing stories about the climb over the rocks. During our timeshare tour, we were told a 90-year old could easily do the climb, while folks we met, who do mountain climbing, said it was a streunous 10 minute climb, with proper footwear a must. I never did try the walk-climb as I was not prepared with the proper footwear during my barefoot walks along the beach!
While enjoying the beach, one can be entertained with the sights and sounds of sea lions swimming by, along with the occasional sight of a whale breaching. Cruise ships also must pass directly by this beach. Solmar Beach is a truly beautiful beach, truly different from all other beaches one encounters in travel experiences.

Punch and beverages are provided, but, if you want alcohol, you must B.Y.O.B. The boats are 26 to 28 feet long and plenty large for four passengers and a crew of three.
Takes only 30 minutes to get from the marina to fishing spots along the Pacific coast.
