Although the name has recently changed to Jacque Cousteau Island, most locals will refer to the historic name of Cerralvo for this stunning, mountainous island. The island is available for purchase and, as such, is essentially uninhabited but available to visit for a short trip from Santa Cruz, Santa Catalina or La Paz on the mainland. The most striking sight is the rocky cliffs that overlook the stunning beaches below. The geography of the island is weird and wonderful with sandy beaches and enormous expanses of vegetation that make this a favourite place for trekking, although permission to land is required.
The main reason that most people come to the island is for the world-class fishing, the surrounding water is a massive breeding ground for many indigenous and migratory fish species, some of which get to a remarkable size. The most regularly caught species are Swordfish, Marlin and Giant Grouper. If you are looking to stay on the island the only option, and a fun one at that, are the large tents which are located on the beach. The organisers will provide you with all of the food that you require and each tent is to a high standard.
