The Malecon is seven kilometers long wall along the seacoast of Havana. It is often called by the locals th soul of the city. This because it is very vivid. It is always full of all kinds of people. If you have seen films taking place in Havana, you must have seen the waves braking on the Malecon as well.

Locals would come here to fish and play, kids play among the rocks, some people even now bring here gifts to the old gods. Lovers also meet here to watch the ships and the sunset together.

It's a place that is beautiful in every weather, any time. You can always enjoy the waves, the people smiling and chatting, everyone comes here just to relax.

Address:
On the seacoast from the Vedado area to the La Habana Vieja.

Price:
It is for free.

Opening Hours:
You can come here any time.
