Punta Baja in Baja Norte is an exposed beach and reef break that has unreliable waves. Winter is the optimum time of year for surfing here. Works best in offshore winds from the east. Tends to receive distant groundswells and the ideal swell angle is from the west. Both left and right reef breaks. Unlikely to be too crowded, even when the surf is up. Submerged rocks are a hazard.
