Especially when the tide is out. Many people to watch, if you are lucky you may see dolphins, whales, turtles hatching. We've even saved starfish. People tend to be friendly and the vendors are respectful.

I consider this a must do in Mazatlan. For me, this was one of the most ultimate Mazatlan experiences i had during my week there. Great food, drinks and music by the ocean. Prices were very reasonable considering how pricey Mazatlan can be. I came here with a tour. Shared a table with strangers and we all quickly became friends.... More

Love the all day happy hour. Shrimp dishes are excellent most of the other choices need to be improved especially the fajitas music is great

Beautiful views but the garbage puts me off this area. It really needs to be cleaned up and kept clean if Mazatlan expects tourists to enjoy this area.

The restaurant, Playa Brujas, is set at the edge of the beach, just south of Point Brujas. It's menu is extensive, prices are reasonable, and you MUST try the coconut shrimp. The setting is palapa style, open and looks out onto the beach. Music every evening. Try it at sunset; you won't be disappointed.

I LOVE this place but was disappointed that my food was too low temp to melt the cheese at lunch time. I think dinnertime is a better choice for this item. The coconut shrimp were amazing!
