Paved walkway with benches and great views. Very crowded in the summer. No dogs from April 1 thru Oct. The walk starts just out of town and ends down in Perkins Cove. Theres a public restroom down in the Cove.

Easy walk. Mostly flat. Breathtaking views of the ocean. Go early in the morning – before the tourists – and you'll have done your exercise for the day:)
