Rosarito in Baja Norte is an exposed beach,reef and rivermouth break that has consistent surf. Summer offers the best conditions for surfing. The best wind direction is from the east. Most of the surf here comes from groundswells and the ideal swell angle is from the southwest. The beach breaks are all lefts and there are also left and right hand reef breaks on offer. The quality of the surf isn't affected by the tide. When it's working here, it can get crowded. The water quality here is rather suspect.

Visitor Reviews of Rosarito

Chapo Sotelo from MEXICO writes:

En Rosarito Baja Norte hay muchisimos puntos en un tramo muy pequeño, en menos de una hora recorres la costa del municipio de punta a punta. Tenemos tanto point breaks como beach breaks y en dias buenos realmente son de clase mundial, con tubos perfectos over head.
