Mexico has some of the most beautiful beaches in North America – and what better way to enjoy them than with a cold beer or delicious cocktail in hand? Here’s a sampling of some of the best beach bars across the country, best visited at sunset, with friends or lovers. The beach is waiting for you… get going.
El Muchacho Alegre
Bar, Seafood, $$$
El Muchacho Alegre is perfectly located in a prime spot on the beach in Mazatlán, and alongside the chilled-to-perfection beers, they also offer seafood dishes
. For a buzzing and convivial atmosphere, this is the spot to be, especially given that they regularly host live banda
music. You’ll leave feeling you really got a taste of the traditional Mazatlán vibe at this beachside bar, as despite simple appearances it is pretty authentic and popular among locals too. Check out the spicy, tomatoey michelada
Aquazul Beach Bar & Lounge
Bar, Contemporary, Mexican, $$$
A luxurious beach bar option with some absolutely top-quality facilities and service, Aquazul Beach Bar & Lounge is part of the Garza Blanca Resort and is the place to be if you want to chill out and be pampered. The bar itself serves up a combination of light dishes and exquisite cocktails, perfect for a relaxed afternoon. It’s also located next to a swanky swimming pool for those of you who fancy a dip but don’t like salt water. This sophisticated looking place has seating both on and a little above the beach, both providing outstanding views.
