Whatever you call it - esplanade, walkway, seawall or boardwalk - the Malecón ranks among Mazatlán’s most iconic experiences. No trip to this storied city set across from the southern tip of the Baja California Peninsula is complete without spending at least a little bit of time soaking up the sights and sunsets along this 13-mile, palm-lined promenade overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
Not only is it Mexico’s longest seaside stretch, the Malecón is believed to be one of the longest and most magnificent in the world. Hotels, historic monuments, restaurants, and nightclubs add to the hustle and bustle of this popular boulevard, located just ten minutes from Pueblo Bonito Mazatlán.
Start your seaside stroll with an Instagram-worthy moment in front of the colorful, Herculean-sized letters that spell out Mazatlán at the entrance to the Golden Zone (Zona Dorada) near Valentino’s. Could there be a more epic intro to your stories? From there, meander south toward Olas Atlas Beach near the southern tip of Old Town. Highlights along the way include a gigantic sea lion monument and the quirky pulmonia monument, a nod to Mazatlán’s legendary open-air buggies.
If you get hungry, you’ll find plenty of casual restaurants right along the beach. Take a break under a palapa, feel the warm Pacific breeze, and dig into a plate of tostada de atún, ceviche or fresh oysters. Afterwards, follow the crowds moving toward Explanada Sanchez Taboada to catch the world-famous clavadistas (cliff divers) and shop for sweets and souvenirs. Wind down at the Hotel Belmar Bar with a cold Pacífico, Mazatlán’s hometown brew. Reserve your escape to Mazatlan today.
