Mid-Pacific: Beachfront & Ocean View Properties

Do you dream of a home overlooking the Pacific Ocean? Do you imagine yourself lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves just steps from your front door? Are you longing to stroll long, empty stretches of beach at sunrise while you watch whales breach just offshore?

Welcome to the mid-Pacific region of Baja California Sur just one hour north of La Paz. Here, you will find breathtaking oversized beachfront and ocean view lots and homes, and a location perfect for those who want to trade the hustle and bustle of the tourist crowds for tranquil, eco-friendly living. 



Playas Pacificas is located within Rancho la Aguja, an old and beautiful Baja California Sur ranch of 363 hectares (900 acres). The ranch, with its 2.3 km (1.43 miles) of Pacific beachfront, is a serene and peaceful place, bordered by the boundless energy and life of the Pacific coast.

Nestled between the beaches of Punta Marquez and Punta Conejo, Playas Pacificas consists of a wide arroyo valley with cleared fields to the south, and a northern section of elevated plains; these plains contain the Playas Pacificas development.

The project will be developed in phases, and the first phase offered consists of several of the most attractive lots in the entire development. There are 15 available large and private properties, all with white water views and a three-minute walk down to the swimmable beach.

About the Community

Active Lifestyle

Here on the mid-Pacific, the ocean and the desert beckon outdoor enthusiasts to pursue their favorite activities. Here you can wade in the calm waters just off the beach, bodysurf in the waves, and start your morning with a swim in the ocean without worrying about water quality. Or, grab your surfboard and paddle out – no need to battle a crowd to catch the perfect wave. Kayak along the coast as you keep an eye out for whales breaching and pods of dolphins cavorting in the waves. Here’s a little-known secret, the winds at Playas Pacificas are perfect for kiteboarding.

Have something more relaxing in mind? Stroll the long stretches of empty beach, and explore shallow tide pools where the marine habitat includes tropical fish, exotic shells, crabs and more. Further inland, miles of hiking, biking and ATV trails await your exploration through the desert. Hike or bike to the top of a nearby mesa and enjoy spectacular panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and nearby cardonales (Cardon forests). Out here, you’ll enjoy quiet desert nights with stars you had forgotten about. The full moon rises over the mesa south of the arroyo and the waves break in mile-long ribbons of phosphorescent light.


Baja California Sur is one of Mexico’s safest states - and there is simply less crime in rural Baja California Sur than in urban areas. Controlled access to Playas Pacificas, together with a strong rural tradition of respect for persons and property, keep its residents safe and your property secure.



Want something a little more rustic? Have a longer time horizon in mind? Vistas del Mar is a collection of beachfront and ocean view sites situated on the same stretch of Pacific coastline, awaiting your vision. Not a master planned community, Vistas del Mar does not include established community features, however, water is available for delivery and solar energy options are also available. Bring your own builder or use one we recommend – this is your chance to design and build your own custom dream home with no time limits or community restrictions. While you are planning your future home, bring your RV or camping gear, and enjoy your Pacific coast slice of heaven while you plan your future home. 

The Year-Round Climate

While the eastern coast of the Baja peninsula reaches 105F and 85% humidity on a summer day, on the Pacific side a year-round temperate climate prevails. No need to escape the heat in the summer, here on the mid-Pacific coast, summer is the perfect time of year: the sea is calm and warm, and the ocean breezes are pleasantly mild. Daytime summer temperatures average 10-15 degrees F (5-7 degrees Celsius) cooler than La Paz, and in the winter, temperatures are slightly warmer- A/C optional and more time for the summer outdoors!




Casa La Aguja welcomes you! Custom-built 4 bedroom turn-key home on a safe swimmable beach. Heated pool, double garage, walled, with extensive patio areas to enjoy the sun and Pacific breezes. You can watch the whales, surf off the point, fish right from the shore and enjoy miles of hiking and ATV trails.
