“Nice beach”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

This beach is close to the Histoirc Zone. It can be rough if the wind is up, but the Malecon which runs along side makes for really good exercise either roller blading (which you can rent), cycling (which you can rent) or just walking. Nice to just sit on the wall with a coffee (from Loonie bean) and watch the waves.

“Beautiful beach area”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Olas Atlas is a very nice beach area with a lot to do around the area. However, if you want just a really nice beach you should go to Playa Cerritos or Playa Bruja.

“South End of Mazatlan”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

Olas Altas beach is very popular with the locals and on weekends quite crowded. Numerous restaurants along the stretch offer good food. It's tough to choose where to eat. Lots of food carts to choose from as well. Drive up Constitucion for a real experience.

Nice water temp, clean water, decent surf. There were many folks walking their dogs, running, riding bikes. Nice malecon walkway, too. Very friendly.
