Those that live in Southern California will know that a thick marine layer can be present in the mornings of some months and can often persist all day. While this phenomenon is present throughout most of the west coast, Club Marena is special in that it sits in a micro-climate. The marine layer makes a straight line across the bay from Calafia Point down to Primo Tapia. Club Marena is tucked inside this greater bay which ensures more sunny days. The condo is also protected from the northerly winds by the Calafia point, which is unique to coastal properties.
The K38.5 surf break that is located at Club Marena and that is visible off the condo deck is a 150-300m right point break into a protected bay (there is also a shorter 50-100m punchier left into the same bay). While more southerly facing, K38.5 picks up all swell directions, including Southern swells from Antarctica/New Zealand in our summer and NW swells in our winter. The waves are uncrowded since the only feasible access point is for those staying at Club Marena. The inside section is also great for beginner surfers. The world-famous K38 break is located immediately northeast of the condo and is visible from the den and front porch.
Eat, Drink, and Be Merry
Most know that Baja California is the land of some of the best taco stands in the world, including those located within walking distance from the condo. The towns along the coast have also been long known for delicious and affordable grilled local lobster, like that found in Puerto Nuevo which is a 5-minute drive away. In addition to these Baja food staples, Rosarito and Ensenada have also joined the farm-to-table movement, which provides some additional exciting dining opportunities for visitors. From fine dining to dive bars, there's something for everyone to enjoy. Foodies will especially appreciate restaurants Deckman's and Finca Altozano in the Valle de Guadalupe, run by Michelin star chefs Drew Deckman and Javier Plascencia, as well as the stunning atmosphere of Cuatro Cuatros.
In addition to enjoying wine tasting in the beautiful Valle de Guadalupe, guests are enjoying the up and coming craft beer scene at awarding-winning breweries such as Agua Mala and Wendlandt.
Finally, live music is a staple in this Baja community. Talented bands play nightly at local restaurants nearby and no trip to Rosarito is complete without visiting Charly's Place for some entertaining karaoke.
