Cholla Bay sits on the beach of the Sea of Cortez (Gulf of Baja California) in Mexico, about 70 miles south of Arizona. The Spanish name for this small community is Bahia La Choya. The more well known English spelling is Cholla Bay.
The small town of Cholla Bay has grown with the development of new homes for mostly Americans and Canadian investors attracted to the rural living. The popular JJ's Cantina is the major sea side attraction.
