We walked for 5 km along the beach of the gold coast south to Valentino's restaurant that marks the start of the paved Malacon. The pathway towards the old town is about 8 more km before the turn into to "centro" or Old Town. You do not need to walk the whole way as there are numerous "Pulmonia" taxis cruising... More

The Malecon beachwalk is of course touristy, but if you're looking to take a stroll by the beach or enjoy some shopping and maybe a drink, it can make for a beautiful day. In December the water was a breathtaking hue of blue, and the weather was perfect. Shopowners are friendly and welcoming. Wouldn't spend more than an hour or... More

First time here and if compared to other malacolons I would have to say that the beach was probably the best thing about it. Lots of vacant lots and construction going on but now I can say that I have been here and it's off my bucket list.

Lots of good people watching walking along the paved seashore. Many vendors of food, souvenirs, shaved ice, cold fruit drinks, etc, make for a nice diversion. The cliff divers offer some entertainment and there are kids skating and swimming in a sheltered seaside pool with a lifeguard.

My husband and I walked a mile or two of the Malecon boardwalk after dinner. It was filled of local night life and great views. There are several monuments to pass by and lots of vendors with awesome roasted corn and tamales. There were lots of local families out enjoying time on the board walk and we felt very safe....

If you feel like a bike ride or a stroll along one of the longest ocean walks on the Pacific then you will love the bustling, beautiful Mazatlan Malecon.
