Playa Brujas, Mazatlan

4.0
#2 of 8 in Beaches in Mazatlan
Take relaxation and recreation in equal measure at Playa Brujas. Popular with surfers, the waves at this beach rank among the best in the local area, and the lack of crowds makes another big plus. Pick up rental boogie boards and surfboards from the beach shacks to hit the waves, whether you're a pro or just starting out. The restaurant on the beach has a reputation for its cocktails and seafood, so stop by for a little refreshment after riding the waves or sunbathing. Exercise caution in rough weather as the rocky outcroppings can prove quite dangerous. For Playa Brujas and beyond, use our Mazatlan driving holiday site to get the most from your Mazatlan vacation.

Where to stay in Mazatlan

Mazatlan's accommodations cluster around the old town, making the most of the city's trademark blend of French Baroque architecture and sea views.
