This place is crowded. There was a meeting on the day we landed up here. There were no vehicles on the road and that helped. There are many cafes along the path. One can spend some time here. Please avoid the hot sun to enjoy...More

This walk along the seaside is very beautiful, but it’s also pretty hot in the summertime. In the evening, people come here en masse, but during the day it’s almost too hot to be outside in this place with no covered seating. Still it’s peaceful...More

Excellent for the Sea side walk and the Beach View. Sunrise and Sunset times are usually popular times. Bylanes close to the promenade are also worth exploring. Le Cafe is good when not crowded !

This is a traditional promenade walk. Very nice that every evening the promenade is blocked to traffic and locals come out to enjoy the site and the cool weather. Kids go into the water ... very enjoyable time

I haven't stayed there. Just been to the bar and restaurant. It's sea facing. Stay maybe expensive. You may want to check the rates.
