Top Beaches in Mazatlan

Top Beaches in Mazatlan

Mazatlan's phenomenal beaches are one of its main draws, and with miles of Pacific coastline on either side of the Golden Zone, you’ll have no shortage of golden sand to choose from. Here's a breakdown of some of best beaches in this Mexican resort town. 

Playa Bruja

Playa Burja, or Witch Beach, attracts surfers to the northern end of Mazatlan. The beach ranks among the area’s most appealing, one that’s perfect for beach bums and surfers of all levels alike. 

Stone Island

For a quieter escape, catch the 5-minute ferry to Stone Island, home to 4,000 residents. The beaches here aren’t lacking in amenities or equipment rentals, but crowds are still pleasantly sparse—it’s easy to spread out on the peninsula’s 10 miles (16 kilometers) of pristine sand.

Playa Los Gaviotas

For a lively scene complete with vendors, watersports kiosks, and plenty of food and drink options, head to Playa Los Gaviotas, the most popular beach in Mazatlan. While peace and quiet may be hard to come by, this is an excellent choice for people watching or partying.

Playa Sabalo

Quieter than Playa Los Gaviotas yet still lively, Playa Sabalo offers room to spread out and sunbathe, as well as protected waters ideal for swimming. Hotels and resorts backing the beach offer lounge chairs and umbrellas—if, that is, you’re willing to shell out for a bar tab. 

Playa Olas Altas

What Playa Olas Altas, or High Waves Beach, lacks in amenities—there are none—it makes up for in tranquility. While this largely empty stretch of sand appeals to surfers and boogie boarders, it’s also a good for walking and, of course, sunbathing in peace.

What we know today as the Mazatlan Lighthouse, one of the highest natural lighthouses in the world, is settled in what once was an island. It was in the year of 1828 when the Island of Crestón began to be used for maritime signaling the port of Mazatlán and until 1930 when the necessary work was done to unite this body of land separated from the port by the breakwater as we know it today. With a length of 641 meters, 321 meters wide and an altitude of 157 meters, the Mazatlan Lighthouse offers the ideal place to enjoy a 360 degree view of the bay landscapes. The perfect place to take photos of the nearby islands and the city!
