Walking along the Malcon is just walking on sand that has never been cold! The fish shops are safe and good food, end at the southern end of the beach area after enjoying the statues along the way, stop at the Looney Bean for a cup of coffee (any style) and go toward the center city to enjoy the art...

It is clean, wide and interesting bronze figures along the way as well as benches. It is safe and used by many Americans, Canadians as well... More

There is a nice wide sidewalk above the beach with easy beach access. It is miles long, and very pleasant day and night. There are very small restaurants right on the beach that are open through the day. Most have excellent seafood.

The Malecon has a collection of statues running it's entire length which are worth the walk themselves. We did enjoy the surf near our hotel which was also quite nice.
