Las Palomas Resort and Golf Club
A Seaside Golf Community of Rocky Point
Las Palomas resort is located in Puerto Peņasco, Mexico - Rocky Point - along the Sea of Cortez on Sandy Beach. It is the first resort in Rocky Point to be awarded 4 diamonds by the American Automobile Association. This resort is our home away from home. Stephanie and I purchased our two bedroom, two bath 1400 sq foot condominium in 2007. A friend of ours has a place there and recommend that we give it a try. I was quite unaware of what to expect.
Sandy Beach’s only Private Condominiums
IPuerta Privada is located on the site of a former RV park located along the Sea of Cortez on Sandy Beach. It sits between Las Palomas Sea Side Golf Community and the Sonoran Sky. The owner of the RV park partnered with the developers of Sonoran Sky and Sonoran Sea to develop Puerta Privada.

Sandy Beach Resorts
Rocky Point’s Master Planned Community
Sandy Beach Resorts has a long history in the town of Puerto Penasco. Purchased in 1940 by Duncan Brown, a Mexican Citizen of American descent, the 3,374 acres of land located just northwest of Rocky Point, was originally owned by the Mexican Federal Government. Duncan would travel regularly to the Sonoran Capital of Hermosilio. While en route by way of train, Duncan passed through the quaint little fishing village of Puerto Penasco where he met the white sandy beaches on the Sea of Cortez. Upon his death, Duncan’s widow sold the land to her brother-in-law Gus Brown, Sr. in 1956.
Laguna Shores Master Planned Resort
Offering Peace and Tranquility
Stephanie and I took a drive to visit Laguna Shores Resort that we have read so much about in the local English newspapers, Rocky Point Times and Join Us. The resort is currently advertising a 2 for 1 special. Offering two condos for the prrice of one. We wanted to know what all the hype was about.
Finding Laguna Shores wasn’t too hard. We traveled west off of highway 8 north of town taking the new federal coastal highway 6 miles to the resort entrance. A guard gate marked the entrance to the resort. After we checked-in with the guard we drove the remaining 2 mile stretch on a well maintained dirt road.

The Community of Cholla Bay
Located a couple miles northwest of Rocky Point, Cholla Bay of Mexico is a paradise in its own. Only 60 miles south of the US-Mexican border (at Arizona), the feel of Cholla Bay is one of relaxation and fun living. Enjoy the Cholla Bay nightlife or fine cuisine at one of many local restaurants. Included at the Bay are relaxing cantinas located right on the beach.
