  Port Map

Isla Rasa is an island located in the Gulf of California, Sea of Cortez, east of Baja California Peninsula. The island covers a total area of approx 150 acres (0,6 km2 /0,2 ml2) and is uninhabited.

  • Isla Rasa is so small that it's difficult to find on a map. The isle lies between Isla Angel de la Guarda and Isla San Lorenzo, located west of Isla Tiburon, in the midriff island region of Gulf of Calfornia, approx 60 km (37 ml) southeast from Bahia de los Angeles, Baja California.
  • Isla Rasa is part of the Mexicali Municipality. It has three species of reptiles: Sauromalus hispidus (spiny chuckwalla), Uta stansburiana (common side-blotched lizard) and Phyllodactylus nocticolus (peninsular leaf-toed gecko).
  • Isla Rasa is flat and very small, but as many as 500.000 birds nest on the isle at once. Almost all Elegant Terns (from Chile and Peru) and Heermann's Gulls (from British Columbia) in the world go there to breed.
  • The climate on the island is very dry, with scant rain distributed throughout the year, mainly between August-December. Botanically, Isla Rasa lies within Sarcocaulescent Deserts of Gulf of California (Wiggins 1980). The most abundant plants include two species of cholla (Opuntia cholla and O.bigelovii) that, along with saltbush (Atriplex barclayana) cover vast areas of the island. 
  • Isla Rasa consists of low hills of volcanic rock and vast valleys with guano deposits. Its shores are rocky with cliffs in the eastern side and 3 tidal lagoons on the western, one of which directly linked to the ocean.

Highlights: Nesting Gulls and Terns
