Baja California is still on high alert due to the COVID-19 pandemic, after registering to date 16 thousand 958 confirmed cases and 3 thousand 149 deaths due to this virus.
However, state and health authorities are aware of the need to reopen activities not only for the economic revival but also for the physical and mental health of the population, who almost mandatorily had to stay at home as a preventive measure due to this health crisis.
This is why today we can observe certain businesses that after complying with hygiene and health protocols have been able to return, but even so, Baja Californians prefer to carry out outdoor activities such as: going to the park, walking or running, or hiking. But what about the beaches?
Being a place where people commonly gather, the beaches are still limited to a schedule and measures, or simply closed. So we'll share with you some information about each one in Baja California.
According to the authorities of this municipality, its beaches will only be open from 8:00 to 10:00 in the morning and in the afternoon from 5:00 to 7:00 Monday through Friday.
In addition, it will only be possible to carry out activities such as running and walking or swimming and surfing ("at your own risk" restricting the entrance of cars, consumption of alcoholic beverages and group gatherings.
While on weekends it will only be open for the drive-in cinema, indicated authorities.
Don't forget that to enter these beaches you must wear a mask at all times (while out of the water), wash your hands constantly and carry antibacterial gel, as well as keep your distance (2 meters) and stay at home if you are part of the groups vulnerable to COVID-19.
San Felipe Beaches
Mexicali authorities assured that it is in their plans to reopen soon, however it is still being evaluated, therefore both the beaches of San Felipe and the malecon are closed to the public.
Even though the border town was one of the municipalities to begin reopening, its beaches are still closed to Tijuana residents looking for a little diversion. This, as well as the previous ones, as a preventive measure after observing on several occasions that people did not respect the restriction signs.
According to the most recent updates of this municipality, its beaches are still restricted for recreational activities, so to avoid crowding the Municipal Public Safety Department has implemented surveillance, preventive rounds and megaphone announcements, especially strengthening the measures to restrict the entry or stay of walkers from different areas such as La Mision, Playa Hermosa and surroundings, where they constantly cordoned off parking areas.
As expected, as in Ensenada, this municipality also has restricted the concentration of people but in this case in its coastal area of Molino Viejo, indicated Ensenada authorities, who together with elements of the Municipal Police and the support of the National Guard have removed people from this location.
So if you are one of those who miss these beaches, we invite you to respect the measures of the authorities, in order to return soon to enjoy these beauties of Baja California in the best possible way.
