There are many opportunities to off-road on ATV's or in dune buggies. Although it is illegal to ride vehicles on the beach, you can do it inland in many areas, especially behind the Sandy Beach.

OYSTER FARMS

I bet you didn't even know that Rocky Point has several fresh Oyster Farms. It's true! If you are an oyster lover like I am, you need to take a drive to the Oyster Farms just outside of Las Conchas. The one we went to is located on the same roads that takes you out of town toward the Mayan Palace. About 10 minutes on this road, you will see the sign on the right that points into the desert. It is about 7 minutes off the paved road to reach the first farm. Enjoy!
