Nice for a stroll, plenty of places to sit and some stalls selling local gifts. The walkway offers a great illusion as if you are walking in a trough.

An enjoyable walk in the shade of the palm trees . Even in February the bird of paradise flowers were in bloom, exotic flora and parakeets flying over head.
