It is a very long stretch along the sea front where locals hang out in the evening. We ate in one of the local restaurants watching the sun go down and then went for a stroll along it afterwards. Pleasant.

I wouldn't come here during the day when it's too hot. It's also a busy road. However it is a nice stroll in the evening to watch the sunset. It's a very very long road so don't feel you have to walk the whole length- just enough to watch the world go by

Perfect stop for an afternoon walk or evening drinks with friends. Grab a pizza from a near by street and enjoy the sunset, live music and soak up Cuban spirit!

Beautiful walk-way by the sea. Fresh air and sea breeze. Great for sunsets. Do take a stroll and enjoy.

A walk along El Malecon is a must. We had the privilege to find the road close due to a parade and a kind of open bars, with very few cars moving around. That gave us the chance to walk by the middle of the road, which was a new experience.

The Malecon in Centro Habana is waiting for tourists and locals alike to enjoy a nice walk, a nice chat, meet the locals, and enjoy a very nice view.

Do not go out of your way to make it here on foot during day time. I hear that it comes alive at night. It is a bit shabby but miles and miles long. Great sunsets.

One of our favorite place in La Habana, especially for the sunset! I enjoyed taking walk alongside the sea while the sun is setting down...

If you are in Centro Habana or Vedado, and need a breath of fresh air, head to El Malecon! You can pick up a beer and sit on the wall and watch the world go by, or watch the waves and imagine the trip from Miami, a mere 90 miles away. El Malecon is beautiful at any time of day,... More
