No longer a beach, just a waterfront/ esplanade. Sea is lined with trash. Visit during evening/ nighttime, esp. the right-hand side (as you face the sea) for stalls, food vendors and so on.

For me it's just a square. There is no sand so how can it be called a beach? It's a nice place for taking some nice photos and that's it. Water is very dirty and is also full or rubbish.
