The Malecon is a beautiful place to hang out and watch the sunset. Lots of folks hang out there in evenings with families strolling, riding bikes or just watching folks walk the beach. Very pretty and probably runs about 5 miles along waterfront,

For Running, walking, swimming or just enjoying your self! Best time to visit it, at the sunset you´ll probably watch one of the most beautiful views of the pacific ocean cities. It worths to take a selfie!!!

Food in on the beach restaurants were good and reasonable. The beach is beautiful and almost empty. Statues, fishermen, pelicans and other seabirds allow for plenty of picture taking.

We walked the entire length of the Malecon from the foot of the hill downtown all the way to Costa de Oro. Took us 4hrs to walk the 15km.. but an awesome trek walking on the concrete walkway and on the beach...stopping at a few of the real Mexican beach restaurants along the way.. fish done right on the charcoal...

A lovely place to walk along the ocean on one side, and many interesting shops and hotels on the other side.

It's fun during the day and spectacularly light up at night. Lots of energy and a fun place to go for a long stroll.

Saw the malecon during the day only -- saw the lights at night from our hotel. Great stretch of walk for both tourists & locals alike. Great venue for biking, walking rollerskating whatever you desire. Walked quite a distance with the ocean breeze, quite pleasant.

The Malecon is one of Mazatlan's most participatory and scenic (especially at night) attractions, for locals and visitors alike - and it is FREE! Approx. 15 kms. which is walked; roller-bladed; run; cycled - anything you feel like. If the Plazuela Machado & the Centro Historico is the heart of the city - this is the main artery!

I just returned from mazatland and got to see the Malecon on different days at different times. I love that Mazatland has built this 15kilometer stretch of side walk along the ocean side in the heart of the city. It is a great gathering spot for both locals and tourist. Great place for walking along the ocean. The 20 ft... More

Driving down this stretch in Mazatlan is a must. Having said that during carnival don't expect to drive anywhere on the Malecon as it is completely closed off. Drivers had to drop us off a few blocks away and then we walked to see the cliff divers and the ocean. Carnival is like a big festival with mostly a ton... More
