“A great walk”
Reviewed 13 June 2012

Even in the heat of the midday sun this 8 km walk was a refreshing way to see the sights and get some exercise. It takes the walker all along the seafront pass the hotels and beach cafes with great sea views and also views of archeological sites. Can get crowded at 6-7 in the evening when the number of walkers and joggers increases and also one needs to keep a wary eye out for bicycles ( I am not sure but think perhaps they are not supposed to use the promenade).great views also of multi million euro seafront homes of the rich and tasteless. Well there are some well designed contemporary homes but many have been designed to appeal to the Russian oligarchs taste.Not sure if there are bathroom facilities on the way as I didn't see any however refreshment at one of the rather overpriced (cappuccino €5)beach cafes on the way gives you access to their facilities.

“Have a walk or swim”
Reviewed 10 June 2012

Nice sea views, good quality beach, sand is fine, water excellent. We enjoyed swimming a couple times. Not much snack etc on the beach, but across the street there are several fast food cafes and also restaurants with further gastronomical goals (that is my guess). If you walk the entire stretch it will be several kilometers so it is a sort of exercise. At the western end on sundays there are very many groups of foreign workers sozializing, relaxing. & enjoying a day off (thais, flipinas, indians etc). On a hot day you can take a mini shower (head, arms and upper body) from several water pipes with a sink (which real purpose is a mystery - for fishermen maybe?).
