Loved walking through here after parking at the underground car park at the port/harbour. (€1.70 per hour) Palm trees made for shade on a hot October day, flooring created the illusion of waves - fine for us but not for people with dementia, methinks. Excellent...More

This is a lovely promenade in the old town. You are spoilt for choice for bars and restaurants. Some stalls sell goods here too. Worth a visit and beautifully lit at night time.

We always ended up walking along here. It was lovely just to chill out and watch the world go by. Ended with a coffee or ice cream and sat on one of the numerous seats. So pleasant to be outside and away from home.

But its not that great. Not many shops there and restaurants except some of them are way under average. Better to walk around the beaches

Great to have an attractive promenade to walk along, what isn't mentioned is the busy main road between you and the sea....

As you walk between the enormous palm trees that line this very pleasant walk, you notice many unusual trees and plants here. There are lots of good restaurants to one side of you, for refreshments, and the marina and sea out on the other side....More
