  • You can start there and walk to entrance have a coffee and walk back. Or Surfers has unlimited eateries to have a meal before or after walk. Easy walking on hard sand on edge of water.  more »
  • From early morning until evening, people near the beachside paved footpaths with a movement. Walk the dog, surf skate, running, walking, etc. If you stay in the vicinity of this exercise wear is best?.
