this is a great place to have an afternoon walk or if you are looking for the perfect sunset , you will be able to find small food trucks with local delicatessen.

great beach. Take a bus or taxi to get there. There's a great seafood restaurant on the beach where you can get a shrimp or lobster dinner at VERY good prices. Best seafood restaurant deal in Mazatlan IMO.

This zone was the very first beach in Mazatlán, you can watch a lot of historical buildings and in the "cerro del vigia" to enjoy of a great view, the zone has many good restaurants at a very good Price!

This is a gorgeous beach however when I traveled to this location the beaches were off limits because of the severe currents.

White sand, few people and waves to surf. Across the street are many outdoor restaurants. People are just drawn to the water and activities on the adjoining malecon. The best place to walk dogs - make it early in the morning before the sunbathers.

We had a view of this from our hotel. On some days a lot of surfers; the beach itself is pretty narrow, and sometimes even disappeared. The sound of the waves is mesmerizing. Unless you are a strong swimmer, don't advise swimming. I don't lie on beaches.

The whole area around Olas Altas is very relaxing and there are multiple bars and restaurants in the area to sit back and take it easy at and watch the surf.

A great beach to hang out and watch the surf roll in.....my favorite! The beach shifts from summer to winter. Sunday's get very busy but any other time it's a quiet area to hang out at.
