The Community: A tranquilo alternative to Cabo, Baja’s East Cape is a sparsely developed stretch some 60 miles north along the Sea of Cortez. At Costa Palmas, a 2.5-mile-long swimmable beach flanks a Four Seasons resort, a marina fit for super yachts, and a sports complex complete with a baseball diamond. Residential options include 24 villas at a soon-to-open Aman resort.
The Course: Billed as Baja’s only walkable course, Costa Palmas’ Robert Trent Jones II layout embodies the East Cape’s mellow mindset. Three six-hole loops—conducive to casual rounds when time is short—meander along the marina, past an estuary, and over coastal dunes. A 30,000-square-foot putting course is made for family fun.
The Home: Beach Club Casita 8 ($14.95 million) is a contemporary retreat just steps from the Sea of Cortez. The 5-bedroom spread spans more than 7,000 square feet inside, plus some 2,000 feet more of pool, patio, dining, and grill-station space. Costa Palmas’ beach, yacht, and golf clubs are all a short walk or cart ride away.
