malecon means boardwalk. i had read about the malecon at esperanza. on our first morning my husband asked where i thought he should go running. oh! the malecon. it's the boardwalk in front of where we ate dinner last night .... it follows the ocean... it should be a beautiful run, honey. oops. he came back. the malecon isn't even a quarter of a mile long. hahahahaha. but, it is lovely, an ocean walk across from the restaurants and shops ... worth walking the length and back after dinner. at least once you know it is super short you know you can park on either end and read menus all the way up and down to see what everyone's specials are for the night.

The Malecon is where you hang out, eat, drink, meet new friends, and watch spectacular Caribbean sunsets. It is lined with the best restaurants on the island of Vieques. It is the only place on the island with a real nightlife too. Technically speaking, it is the long sidewalk along the shore of the town of Esperanza. Opposite the shore are all of the eateries, and three or four places to stay. The Lazy Hostel, Malecon House and Tradewinds. There is also a new hotel going up, but it's not actually on the Malecon. If you're planning a trip to Vieques, then the Malecon in Esperanza is a MUST SEE - MUST DO!

The Malecon is an area between the road and the beach. Nice sidewalk that is dotted with covered benches every so often. A stroll along the Malecon will allow a lovely view of boats at anchor and it also is a great way to walk to one of the many beach bar/cafes on the street.

It was lots of fun choosing the different places for dinner each night and local vendors often are set up selling lovely souvenirs. The sea glass jewelry was my favorite!

Leisurely strong along the malecon and enjoy the ocean view. Very pretty. Along the other side there are tons of casual restaurants and bars to choose from. A fun place to visit during the day or in the evening.
