Malecon is essentially a long boulevard that runs along the water on the north side of the city. There's not a lot happening on this street, although the beaches are not bad, and actually quite popular with the locals. The old-time houses and buildings are also a beautiful sight, although sadly they are interspersed between some run down buildings and... 更多
The Malecon sure has seen better day. Only good thing these day is the you can sit and watch the ocean with your family and friends. I would not recommend it for night time visit. You have to be careful because there have been a slight up tick in crime in the las 6 months. Beautiful view on a bright... 更多
The Malecon is a beach front street great for daytime or an evening stroll to see the sunset. Small shops offer up coffee, drinks or light means. Could even do a simple dinner there. Local vendors stop you with simple wares, no pressure to buy and very polite. Swimming at any part is available but not a resort beach front.... 更多
The Malecon is the road next to the seashore. It's a great route for cars and trucks to get around the city.

It is a facinating experience to people watch on the Malecon. Great place for a walk along the ocean.
We had the taxi drop us off away from the crowds, and we had the beach almost to ourselves. Several people walked by, but we had the beach to ourselves. Water was nice, there was sandy places, but a lot of rocks too. It was pretty shallow for a long way.
There really is not that much to see, some buildings are in really bad shape and run down, the sea and beach are quite dirty so not the prettiest malecon. But there are sone restaurants and you are able to but your coconut water surely.
This waterfront area of Puerto Plata is a must-miss destination. It runs along the (run down) colonial area of the city. Sadly, the area is cut off from downtown by a busy 4 lane road with aggressive drivers. The beach is littered...absolutely littered, with garbage. And as we tried walking along peacefully we kept getting badgered by locals trying to... 更多
Walked around - admired the buildings. The area had some construction. Wish all of historic Puerto Plata could have some attention - paint and more restoration. This historic district area could be a real asset to tourism economy, but needs an over all boost as a scenic urban destination.
