Islandia Marina occupies approximately 5 acres
of beach front in Bahia de Kino.
Mild winters, gentle waves, and blue skies are a daily part of life
here. With a perfect view of Pelican Island and tranquil
beaches it is an inviting place for those who are seeking the beauty
of the desert and the ocean. A small fishing village, Kino Bay
offers something different than most tourist destinations.
With it's small town charm, locally run shops, and traditional arts
and crafts; it provides a feeling of community and welcomeness.
Islandia was founded in 1960
by Don Tiburcio Saucedo and his wife Dona Tina Gallardo. After
a flood caused them to leave their ranch they moved with their five
of nine children to Kino Bay. It was here that they began the
first cabin and first
launch in Kino. It is still to this day run by the Saucedo
family and offers 14 cabins and 40 r.v. trailer spaces.
Located on the Sea of
Cortez and a boat ride away from Tiburon Island you can encounter an
ecological haven of birds, fish and plants. The beaches are
untouched and are wonderful for beach glass and shell collecting.
The desert offers bird watching as well as a never ending blue sky
dropped by the mountains and saguaros.
Catching the sunset through the cactus forest is a
must and waking up to the sunset over the beach is a welcoming sign
that it is going to be a beautiful day.
