Bahía de Kino

Kino Bay

Its name is taken in honor of the Jesuit missionary Eusebio Francisco Kino, who visited this site in the 17th century. It was until 1930 that it was officially founded by fishermen. However, the indigenous people settled here much earlier, maintaining and sharing, to this day, their culture and traditions. It is one of the most beautiful and safest beaches in Sonora and even in Mexico; therefore, it allows a wide range of activities to be carried out. It is part of the municipality of Hermosillo.
