There is no bad time to walk down this walkway but we happen to go at sunset. It was just stunning with the orange glow to the north/west. You dont need to be fit or particulary able to enjoy this lovely walk.

Headed in to town along the great coastal walkway. Just after getting on ran into a delightfully happy English tourist who was very chatty, then ran into a couple who are friends of ours. They told me I should be wearing an arm band. 100...More
