Playa Brujas, about 24 miles northwest of the Mazatlan city center, is a top destination for surfers, thanks to the fantastic swells that can reach up to seven feet, and for vacationers seeking a more secluded atmosphere than what they might find at other Mazatlan beaches. The best time of year to visit Playa Bruja Mazatlan tends to be between April and December, as the weather is at its finest throughout this time, particularly for surfing conditions.
Surfers and those who intend to learn the sport can, of course, bring their own board, rent one in town before making the trek for the Playa Brujas, or rent a board right on the beach itself. There are also options for surfing lessons, and novice wave riders can learn quite a few techniques and local favorite spots for boarding from the experts that frequent Playa Bruja Mazatlan.
In addition to the excitement of jumping that wave or making that perfect aerial, many visitors are drawn to the Playa Brujas for the isolation of the beach, preferring the solitude of this particular environment to the hustle and bustle of the Golden Zone, where a majority of tourists spend their days during a trip to Mazatlan. Here, the restful atmosphere is conducive to gathering energy for the next round of holiday events, from touring the Mazatlan islands to heading off on a sport fishing excursion or a walking tour of the Centro Historico, the city’s old historical center. Whether you are in the mood for action or relaxation, Playa Bruja Mazatlan is a great beach to visit.
