I walked by Wednesday with my friend from Santa Cruz. It's been remodeling right now it's not a good idea to go the because you can't walk freely. Wait until is finished

Nice view and several statues and monuments for picture taking, spotted a fisherman bringing in a Swordfish and everyone around started to take pictures to it. Visited on July 21 st, weather was hot to be walking around. Spotted several watering holes to cool off, you'll have a lot of choices, check it out !!!

We walk the malecon every day with our dogs. It's so beautiful, peaceful and it's fun the watch the occasional porpoise that come in the harbor to play.

I enjoyed the malcontent because I went for walks everyday and it was always excellent, particularly at sunset. I took many photos and enjoyed sipping a coconut while sitting there.

We enjoyed all the statues on the ocean side, and the restaurants and shops on the inland side. Definitely spend some time walking along the whole thing--very friendly people, no pushy vendors or anyone unpleasant. We've been in places where shopkeepers are really aggressive to get you to come into their stores, but encountered none of that here. Friendly and... More

While I fished with another outfit, Tailhunter restaurant proved to be our regular spot for drinks after a day on the water. Friendly and engaging staff, great carne asada and a comfortable place for tourists. Also affords magnificent views of the Bay!

One our favorite things while visiting was strolling the Malecon before and after dinner. Being a visitor, we felt very safe and welcomed to this unique area.

What a great idea is the Malecon, we would walk it everyday for the 10 days we were there. Lots of things happening on different days, the weather was beautiful, sunsets so brilliant. Loved all the statues along the way.

Malecon is the main street with ocean in La Paz, the tradition is to walk and join many people doing so every morning or during the sunset. Also is a local tradition to drive very slow with friends on nights of thursday, friday and saturday. Malecon has a big sidewalk.
