Anchoring at BSM

Bahia Santa Maria (BSM) is a huge bay and can easily accommodate 200+ cruising yachts. We were one of the last boats to arrive with the Haha rally, so we ended up anchoring relatively far from the beach in about 30 feet in solid holding ground. The only thing to watch out for are Mexican fishing boats when you approach the anchorage - stay well clear to avoid catching your prop on stray fishing lines. Aside from that, this is a strong anchorage that requires no special anchoring techniques. 

The Beach is Amazing

The most spectacular part of Bahia Santa Maria is its huge wind swept beach. It is littered with jagged rocks and tide pools, of which we only had time to explore a tiny fraction. The beach was especially enjoyable for our dog who what hundreds of yards of firm sand to run around. If you're into marine biology or coastal landscapes, this place is paradise.
