East Cape, Baja Califorina Sur, México
Cabo Pulmo is the only living coral reef in North America and is located on the East Cape of Baja Califorina Sur. Cabo Pulmo is a shallow bay along the Sea of Cortez with 5 miles of pristine beaches running from Los Frailes to Pulmo Point. Cabo Pulmo has been designated in 2005 as a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to the abundance of tropical water species and the coral reef. It is world renowned for excellent scuba diving, snorkeling, kayaking and fishing. Divers and snorkelers will love the finger coral reefs extending offshore with water from 15 to 80 feet deep. Windsurfers enjoy the winds that often blow from the side, parallel to the beach. Cabo Pulmo is about 20 miles south of La Ribera on the East Cape road.
