Winter in Rocky Point is a beautiful time of year. The beaches are less crowded, but the weather is still warm and sunny. The average temperature in December is around 75 degrees and you can expect the sun to be shining. You can spend your days at the beach, laying in the sand and soaking up the sun or explore Rocky Point’s popular Old Port. The boardwalk runs along the shore of the Sea of Cortez and features many local shops, art galleries, restaurants, and bars. There are also several Rocky Point events going on the winter months that you should be sure to check out.
CEDO Nature Talks
The Center for the Study of Deserts and Oceans holds free nature talks twice a week in both English and Spanish. The nature talks are led by local scientists at the Center who will teach you all about the culture and natural resources of the Sonoran Desert and the Sea of Cortez. The walk will also take you on a tour of the CEDO Field Station. English talks are held every Tuesday at 2 p.m. and every Saturday at 4 p.m. Spanish talks are held Tuesdays at 4 p.m. and Saturdays at 2 p.m. The Nature Talks start at the CEDO institute just outside of downtown Rocky Point.
