The water in Mazatlan is pretty. The sand is not powdery. The water is the Pacific so it is pretty rough but nice and relaxing. We saw cliff divers.

We always check out the salt water pool and we watch the cliff divers. It never gets old. We love the entire Malecon.

A decent beach that can be overviewed from the beautiful Malecon. An ideal location to watch the sunset, as well as top of the Best Western. Lots of restaurants in this part of town.

You can watch the beach from a beautiful paved pedestrian path at the northern side. What pleased us is location away from the crowd. We recommend visiting early in the morning or at sunset.

During our stroll along the Malecon, on Thursday 3rd February, this beach was one of the sights we saw along the way

It is situated at the southern end of the Malecon, it stretches along the coast from the River, Rio Cuale  down to Playa los Muertos and it's pier.

It's name translates as high waves beach, however, when we were here the waves were rather tame.

The top end of the beach (river end) is dedicated as a turtle conservation area. There are signs, asking visitors to respect the beach and keep off certain areas. They also  give information about what to do if turtles were seen on the beach.

There was not a lot of activity happening along this beach with it's golden sand. We did see a stall where people were preparing shellfish to be sold.

A number of bars, restaurants, shops and cafe are on the promenade alongside the beach.

Fun to walk and watch people and see such beautiful scenery. So many things to see that every time is a different picture of Mazatlan.

I start from the CIUDADES HERMANAS park to the Pedro Infante monument and back home ,approximately 7000-8000 Fitbit steps
On our way we will pick up a coffee and stroll the malecón taking in the ocean breeze, and having wonderful conversations with my wife.
