Playa Olas Altas is a great place for a walk. It is located in Centro. Lots of statues, a salt water pool, cliff divers and the continuation of one of the longest Malecons in the world.

Actually that is a plus. About 15 meters wide at best it is still really nice sand and pretty clean. Nice breeze, Because it is more frequented by the locals it is fairly quiet during the week and a bit busier into the weekend and...More

It's the downtown beach. Easy to get to, and easy to enjoy. Many restaurants as well as quiet spots to laze, enjoy the sun and the sunsets!

Olas Atlas beach is overlooked by some travellers given its small size nestled between rocky shores and location south of downtown. The divers entertain for tips just north of the beach, and it's a real local hangout along the Malecon there with lots of street...More

The Hotel Olas Alta is NOT on Olas Altas bay. It is sort of half way between the actual Olas Altas Bay area (The old town area of Mazatlan) and the Gold Zone. It is right on the main beach road and there are buses right in... More
