Although it begins in the old quarter, the Malecón is, above all, the face of 1950s Havana; a city striving to match the great capitals of America. Whether in the bay area, with a view of the Castillo de los Tres Reyes del Morro and the ferry to Casablanca, or along the edge of the Vedado district, the sea wall of the Malecón offers a great place within the Cuban capital to go for a walk and fill your lungs with fresh, salty sea air.
Anyone who travels to Cuba will never forget their first "nuclear" sunset at the Malecón ,from La Punta castle looking towrds Vedado....heavenly !!
Undergoing alot of restoration ,it is the city´s balcony to the sea....wonderful arcaded buildings,though many more delicate structures succumbed to the salt and neglect decades ago.Past Parque Maceo the buildings along the Malecón become more modern and eventually it is lined with some high rises from the 50´s,the 1994 Melià hotel and some socialist highrises as well.....very un Miami or San Juan looking and that´s why I love it so !!
Rent a taxi and go the whole length.It is wild !!!
A MUST to hang with a beer and relax!!!!
