Although Olas Altas more often refers to the neighborhood of bars and businesses near the ocean south of the Río Cuale, it is also the name of a few blocks of sand between Daiquiri Dick’s restaurant and the Río Cuale. It attracts fewer sunbathers than Los Muertos but is otherwise an extension of that beach and gets lively during holidays with sunbathers and impromptu snack stands and shaded tables on the sand. Facing Olas Altas Beach near Lázaro Cárdenas plaza are open-air stands selling beach accessories, small grocery stores, and beach-facing bar-restaurants.
