The Malecon is Havana's famous seaside esplanade. It winds alongside Havana Harbour and stretches from Old Havana to Centro Havana. During the day, you'll find people along the Malecon selling fishing supplies and catching all sorts of sea life, ranging from octopus to eel. At night, the Malecon turns into a social hotspot. Hundreds of locals gather at the seawall to hangout with their friends under the stars.
