Rocky Point is reopening: Visit Phoenix’s closest beach town
Starting on June 1st, 2020, Phase II of Rocky Point’s reopening has begun. And this great beach town is ready for business! Under Phase II though, there was only a reduced number of people allowed inside certain establishments, expanding on the take-out/delivery restaurant options and appointment only services. Phase III started on June 16th. So now, visitors are welcomed back in town. But of course, there are various health and safety protocols still in effect.
Now it’s time to come visit Phoenix’s closest beach town. Though there are protections in place, the weather is great and the waters of the beautiful Sea of Cortez are warm and welcoming. So what are you waiting for? It’s only a three to four hour drive from Phoenix and the experience will provide you with a lifetime of great memories!
Wrecked at the Reef
Wrecked at the Reef, a very popular bar and grill near the beach, north of the resorts, was an awesome place for a relaxing dinner with live music. The glistening Sea of Cortez was better than expected. The giant resort that we checked into was like Los Cabos, but much less expensive. It had a wide-spread beachfront area containing pools, hot tubs and a swim-up bar with stools under the water. Then, it had steps down to the sand of the beach, where we could walk for miles to the north and to the south.
At Wrecked at the Reef, you can either spend your time inside the well decorated restaurant and bar, or just ask, and they’ll provide you with a table and chairs right on the beach. There, you can gaze out at the beautiful Sea of Cortez while eating and drinking. On the beach, to the left is a sand volleyball court. To the rear, there’s a stage where you’ll likely be watching a talented perfomer sing live music. Then, inside the bar, find many TVs to watch games like the Arizona Diamondbacks.
This place is very nice and affordable too!
You’ll rant and rave to all of your family and friends, who may either cherish Rocky Point, or have fear of it simply because it’s in Mexico. Well, never fear. This place is safer than most places in Phoenix, and much cheaper and exciting.
No matter how low your expectations may be, due to the many years of random reports about drug crimes and deadly shootings, remember this: There are deadly shootings all over the USA. The difference is this: When a shooting happens in the USA, it happened in THAT part of town, or in Chicago or Detroit, where violence is rampant.
When there’s a shooting in Mexico, that’s how it’s referred. “It happened in Mexico!” So remember, Sonora is the safest state in Mexico, and Rocky Point is withing the “no hassle” zone, where the government highly regards tourism. Use common sense and you WILL be safe.
Come visit soon!
