This wide pedestrian (and bicycle) 6 mile path along the ocean is spectacular! It takes you to and from the golden zone to downtown past the fishing fleet, multiple beach side restaurants, and art works. You have the ability to jump on the bus at any time as it runs along the main drag.

This sandy crescent shaped beach front is a full 13 miles long, very wide, and invites all strollers to take it all in. One dominant feature is the uninhabited Deer and Bear Islands which provide a striking contrast to the water and the large sandy beaches. You can catch a tour of both islands if you wish to explore the... More

You will also find awesome restaurants right on the beach! It's also a great place to get in a run, bike ride, or just a stroll down along the beach.

We started at the cliff divers (which were pretty cool) at the north-ish end then walked to Valentino's. Lots of fun people watching and taking in the sights. The fishermen and pelicans at Fisherman's Beach were entertaining. We stopped about half way to have a fresh fish lunch St one of the beach Mariscos restaurants, thatched hut style. Sat on... More

This is a great, long, walk with beautiful views. Don't miss it! The statues and views of the ocean were so amazing.

This is the second longest seaside pedestrian haven in the world. From a tour of art and history to an ocean-side stroll to a jogger or rollerblader's haunt, this is the premier destination in Mazatlan. Don't leave without experiencing all it has to offer!

Nothing too special about walking along the beach....it's not the best part of town, but perfectly safe.
