  • Favourite place in the town for stroll. There are an incredible 6.6 million red, black & cream marble tiles that make up striking wave pattern along with 400 palm trees and extends for 500 meters along the harbour.
  • Esplanade along the harbour, although there is a road between it and the water. Quite touristy and gets very busy at times.
  • One of the most brilliant and detailed works of art I've ever seen. Tiny mosaic tiles stretch over 500 meters. It runs along the Mediterranean Sea and is also called the Paseo de la Explanada.
  • A very attractive walking street with a charming mosaic-tiled pavement.
  • Beautiful walk among Palm trees scented sea and diversity. Aesthetically very attractive. Beautiful
