Great for a morning run along the foreshore! Flat easy path. Must go watch the sunrise as it sets over the pier. For gym junkies there are exercise equipment too!

The pier is well worth a trip, really. Walking along the pier watching the dogs play on the off leash area is gorgeous. don't stress about parking on the main drag, if you go around the end of the Esplanade and left, then left, the sidestreet has plenty of parking.

This is a wonderful attraction that helps work up a nice appetite for the next... More

Loved the esplanade, we walked, drove and cycled it and if I had more time I would have run it too. It is really scenic and being a runner, I kept thinking how nice it would be to run along it regularly if you lived there. So many restaurants/cafes and shops to look at or try too.

We visited with two small children and they don't like to walk far!!! We stumbled across a bike hire place near Oceans Resort that rents four wheeled Beach bikes. It's one of the few activities that family members of all ages can enjoy together. My young children sat up front whilst we pedled the beautiful shore line. A great way... More

Viewing seats are available at various stages, as are toilets, and exercise activity equipment in various stations along the way. Bikes and scooters are available for hire at the Urangan Pier end of the waterfront walkway. One can walk right to the... More

The Esplanade is a lovely drive whereby you can pull over and visit the beach, the caravan parks, the shops and eating places. I would return again.

I walked a short way along the Esplanade, but enjoyed the walk next to the sea, following the paved footway that led all the way to the marina. There is the pier and nice beaches along the esplanade that I walked along as well.
