One of the most popular Mother’s Day traditions has always been brunch with the family. May brings fantastic weather to Rocky Point and Mother’s Day is a great time to come down and enjoy it. You can enjoy a Mother’s Day brunch at various restaurants or make it lunch or dinner. Many restaurants will feature specials and/or live music. Because temperatures are in the 80’s in May, the weather is great for afternoon or evening walks along the beach.
For those who prefer to be in the water, a sunset cruise or a party boat is a great idea. Both have live music and often include light snacks and drinks and the breathtaking sunsets are priceless. With a little bit of luck, you might even see dolphins swimming alongside the boat.
One of the most popular Mother’s Day gifts has always been a massage or a trip to the spa. In Rocky Point, beach massages are available daily and are offered in half hour and hour long increments. If you are interested in additional services such as facials, manicures or pedicures, there are many spas in Rocky Point that offer plenty of additional services that can create a perfect gift package. And if giving the gift of a massage or spa treatment is not your style, there are plenty of other gift options like a nice piece of authentic silver such a pendant, ring or earrings or a figurine hand carved out of Sonoran wood called “Palo Fierro” from the shops at the Cholla Mall or Malecon area.
Rocky Point also has some fantastic local bakeries. You can pick up a cake or dessert to enjoy as you bring your day to a close. Between brunch, a cruise around the bay and massage services and the shops in town, you can create the perfect Mother’s Day experience in Rocky Point.
