Really enjoyed walking down the melecon from the south to the border fence which extends into the ocean. Many drinks and food possibilities. Especially enjoyed Cafe Aquamarino & Pizza at the beginning of our trek and then cheese and wine at Huerto Orbanico at the end of the afternoon.

Lots of good people watching on this waterfront walkway. Big Restaurant row overlooking the ocean. The US wall/fence is landscaped and painted with murals. A big bull fighting ring is used for lots of big public events, concerts and bull fights.

It is a nice beach area, good to go visit on a nice day, have a taco and look at the sea:). Could be a little cleaner though (the area around the beach).

Listen to mariachi music and indulge in the fresh, wonderful tropical fruit and roast corn from stands on the boardwalk. Walk along the beach, stroll the boardwalk or sit in the bleachers, enjoy the view and people watch. There are strict health standards for food... More

Worth seeing the Pacific Ocean when the sun is out. You can stop and eat, take a walk, take photos, just enjoy the water, etc. I got to see whales off shore!!

It was kind of stinky but very interesting to see the partly finished buildings. The tide ruined some of them and the others never finish or they will have to start paying taxes. So interesting to see the border wall that extends into the ocean and learn about the area. Very pretty. An Amish community lives down the coast closer... More

Playas is awesome! Food is great and the atmosphere is super fun! If you're looking for something fancy this isn't for u! But if you wanna have a 3dollar michelada listen to Banda and walk around and checking out the beach view and the locals then this is it! Enjoy!

I believe this is one of the most visited places in Tijuana. It features a pretty nice boardwalk overlooking the ocean. The area is full with restaurants and coffee shops. There's people running in the mornings and sunsets are goreous at this place. Overlooking a body of water is a very relaxing experience. Doing it with a cup of coffee... More

I went to the beaches at the bordered wall. This area was beautiful with painted murals, sculptures and a community raised garden. Welcome to Tijuana posted in several places. Somewhat political and a very emotional place to visit. Words of encouragement, quotations taken from strong historical figures and beautiful painted pictures can be found on the length of the iron... More

If you are in Tijuana a must see. Take a uber or taxi from the main city - if you don't want to navigate the public transport etc... Pretty chilled out and relaxing, a very interesting place to be.
