March. On! Rocky Point Rundown!

As we look to March, we recall this is generally when Rocky Point revs up its Spring Break season…leading to Semana Santa.  Last year, Rocky Point was in full Spring Break mood when the pandemic hit our playas and we all sat it out…for a while.  Tourism and the economy has been inching back since last Summer and though this Spring Break will be different than others, indeed our beaches are open, restaurants and bars eagerly await your visit, and the city is happy to have you – just mask up, wash your hands, and coastally distance well. ¡Gracias!

Yes, Whale watching season is still in full swing, as long as the winds and weather cooperate. Federally recognized in this area through April, check with local tour boats as to availability for whale watching tours (down by the docks).

Get out your calendars and let’s run down what’s up in Rocky Point!

Keep in mind!
