We walk the Malecon several times a week. Love the oceans view and well maintained walkway. Interesting palapa type restaurants on the beach serve excellent fare.

The Malecon is a lovely 3-4 mile seawall/walkway along the sea in Mazatlan. We rented bicycles and rode along the length of the walk. There are lovely views of the city and many beachfront restaurants and vendors to enjoy.

Nothing like a loooong walk or drive on the beach. Amazing spot for pictures too! Perfectly safe and ideal for the whole family.

We like starting at the Zona Dorada end, near Valentino's, and heading to the Centro in a pulmonia. We ask the driver to take the Malecon as far as he can, and it's wonderful.

Nice sculptures. We didn't actually walk it and were told Ocean Grill is the only really good restaurant there. Pretty view of the ocean
