This is a wonderful beach for long walks with views of the ocean and islands off the coast. Great for swimming, sunbathing or strolling. This is a wonderful place to watch the sunset. Go for a long walk and enjoy being in Mexico.

Went here for our first afternoon in Mazatlán. Had dinner at the Last Drop and watched the sunset from another little restaurant on the beach. The locals come here. Close to The Last Drop and Mr. Lionso's. Great for sunsets.

Nice beach area, great place to look for shells or just hang out on the beach. You can look and walk in the rock area to find your hidden shell or treasure.
