Loreto Bay is one of the few places on planet Earth worthy not having a common description.

The bay is blessed with enormous amounts of natural beauty, yet it is largely undeveloped. It seems the world is just discovering how magical this setting really is. In the distance, the five islands that float on the horizon of the Sea of Cortez have formed an ecological barrier creating an underwater concentration of every spectacular sea animal you could imagine.

Loreto is a quaint fishing village on the east coast of Baja California.

If you're seeking a place that defines luxury and true relaxation, look no further than Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto. With its quiet beaches, scenic vistas, rich history and astounding natural habitat – and offering every modern amenity and truly exceptional service – Villa del Palmar is the perfect getaway for families, couples, honeymooners, friends and more.

Set within Danzante Bay and the indigo waters of the Sea of Cortez once dubbed “The Aquarium of the World” by Jacques Cousteau, the resort features 4,447 acres of unspoiled beauty.
