Puerto Rico’s Newest Malecón


One of the best beaches in greater San Juan has a brand new beachfront boulevard.

The beach town of Cataño has debuted a revitalized Malecón, located next to its ferry terminal.

The new look is part of an island-wide program aimed at reviving Puerto Rico’s waterfront areas.

“It will be the people of Cataño, who through their initiative and creativity, will give final shape to this place,” Puerto Rico Governor Alejandro Garcia Padilla said at the inauguration event this week. “This boardwalk will be a vital space. This is an extraordinary opportunity for locals to renew its gastronomic, cultural and leisure potential.”

The town is most famous as the home of the Bacardi factory and visitor complex, accessed by a short ferry from the port of San Juan.
