Busy promenade in the early mornings - most interesting walking with the locals along the beachfront. Beach itself unimpressive.

If you want a beach experience , paradise beach. If you want to enjoy the sea from the banks promenade. Promenade has better food options - I would love to sit on the beach during evening.
