Coastal Highway Directions

Coastal Highway Directions

Have you feverishly searched for directions to the coastal highway from California to Puerto Peñasco “Rocky Point” Sonora? Even being a Rocky Point blogger, I myself have struggled with getting the right way to the coastal highway to El Golfo de Santa Clara down. I set out on a mission, and I have pictures of where you need to turn to get on the new coastal highway. If you are coming from California, you will need to cross the border at Yuma/San Luis Rio Colorado. You will then see the signs for the coastal highway (carratera costal) and you will be able to jump on it from there. You will travel south, toward the Sea of Cortez (aka the beach!) until you get to this intersection:

El Golfo Intersection

Here is the sign you will see as you approach El Golfo de Santa Clara. Take that left turn at the stop sign about 500 feet ahead:

Golfo de Santa Clara

It doesn’t seem like much, but when you get on the coastal highway in El Golfo, you will be amazed at the view you will get all the way into Rocky Point:


It looks like this most of the way, and you can see the Sea of Cortez from the road!

The coastal highway from El Golfo de Santa Clara to Puerto Peñasco is a 4-lane highway with an ample shoulder and is well striped and lit. There are many rest stops with information about wildlife,  native vegetation and local history

The government has put $374,251,124.00 pesos, which is about $29 million dollars into the stretch from El Golfo de Santa Clara to Rocky Point. This investment from the state and federal government will ultimately put Puerto Peñasco back on the map as the drive-to destination for people in the southwest United States. Folks from San Diego can make it to Rocky Point in a mere 4.5 hours or less, shaving about 2 hours of drive time off. This new coastal highway has opened the door to California, and with that comes new prospects, projects, and people to Puerto Peñasco. I imagine that Rocky Point will see a spike in tourism thanks to this new mode of transportation available.

      On Google there is a road in ‘grey’ that cuts down to go to rocky point. Is that a dirt road or is it paved? This is the road on the Mexican side from highway 2. The shortcut is shown from highway 2 getting on to highway 8. It looks like a little road that keeps you from having to go farther east on the 2 before getting on the 8. Google maps does not show a name for the road though. Does anybody know???
