The Esplanade boardwalk is good for just relaxing, strolling along and watching the world at play. On the waterside there is a lot to see, not least the boats and ships on their way to the reef and elsewhere. In the water and at the edge there are lots of birds, egrets, gulls, pelicans, waders, divers and goodness knows what else. Depending on the tide there are hermit crabs and other wriggly sea things. On the land side people laze about, BBQ on lawns under the shelter of trees, or just amble along. Towards the town there are lots of cafes and shops across the road and it's not too difficult to cross to them.
