Can do a nice walk. Lot of food and drink eateries along the sidewalk combing the whole stretch of beach. Very windy.

I would not swim at the front beach given the back beach is so close relatively speaking. The walking on the sidewalks is nice but the beach really is not that pretty. More industrial looking and the actual beach area is smaller.

Moved this side after a few days at back beach. Totally different area. Many bars and restaurants here. Beach is not big or as good as back beach but it is swimable. Many things to see and do, most within walking distance.

We toured with a guide who gave us so much information on the front and back beach, and the roles they played in the war.

Swimming at the front beach is not pleasant, there are oil slicks and rubbish in the water and moored tankers and boats everywhere. Location is good though i would choose somewhere else to swim

Contrary to Back Beach, the Front Beach is not the best place for sunbathing. It is closer to the centre and more intense traffic, the shore becomes sometimes rocky. However, it is a good place to visit bars, restaurants, the beautiful city park located closely...More

Stayed over looking this beach and it's more of a working area for fishing boats than a beach but it does have a very good promanard

The Front Beach has at one end of it an absolutely fabulous park populated with about 20 large sculptures that are amazing and beautiful. In the evening when the lights have come on and everything is cooling, it’s an awesome place to stroll either along...More
