El Malecón
Havana, Cuba

El Malecón

The Malecón (officially Avenida de Maceo) is a broad esplanade, roadway and seawall which stretches for 8 km (5 miles) along the coast in Havana, Cuba, from the mouth of Havana Harbour in Old Havana, along the north side of the Centro Habana neighbourhood, ending in the Vedado neighbourhood. New businesses are appearing on the esplanade due to economic reforms in Cuba that now allow Cubans to own private businesses. It’s a lovely walk along the front, best done in the evenings when the temperature is a little cooler.
