Isla San Francisco is a small island in the Gulf of California's southern part. It is located off mainland Mexico (Baja California Sur state's eastern coast), south of Isla San Jose and north of the Bay of La Paz (approx 75 km / 47 ml north of La Paz City).
The uninhabited San Francisco island is separated from Baja California Peninsula by a channel with width of 10 km (6 ml). The island's length and width are 2,5 km (1,6 ml), covering a total area of approx 4 ml2 (1,5 ml2).
Isla San Francisco is a true natural laboratory and the views from its hills are irresistible. In addition to watching rare seabirds (like yellow-footed gulls, white-throated swifts, sandpipers), cruise travelers may also see fascinating cacti (such as pitaya, opuntia, cholla) thriving in this rocky environment.
