San Felipe Malecon
The 4 block waterfront area in downtown San Felipe is very active, and where most of the tourists hang out, known as the Malecon alone is dotted with almost a dozen fresh shrimp and fish taco stands, which also specialize in fresh seafood cocktails and freshly dug, steamed clams. At any stand, you can mix and match your favorite blend of octopus, scallops, shrimp, squid, clams and whatever else the shellfish gods give forth that day. Seafood cocktails are priced by size and mixture. A platter of 20 steamed butter clams, accompanied by a big shrimp glass of melted butter, is $4. Batter shrimp, fish or shark tacos are $1 anywhere in town. Additionally, scattered along the beach and throughout the beach town are a variety of informal restaurants and unique food finds. The Malecon in San Felipe offers stunning views of the Sea of Cortez and San Felipe Bay. If you want to charter a fishing boat the Malecon is where you will find a captain to take you on either a tour of the islands or fishing. The Malecon is perfect for eating or just taking a relaxing stroll.
