“Quiet refuge”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

Wonderful place to just take a stroll and enjoy the wonderful scenery. You can watch sea birds and just enjoy the sunset or sunrise right by the water edge.

Very pleasant walk any time of the day or night. Plenty of café's and a very large swimming pool en route. Really worth a stroll.

“Worth taking a walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

The boardwalk is a perfectly nice stretch along the water. Nice views of the beach, close enough to the Centre to be convenient, but enough removed to not be in the full throng of tourists. Some good restaurants on the way. Great place for a walk or a jog.

Provided something for everyone and a lovely walk during the day or night. Provided a great walk from the hotel to the resturants and the pool was fun for kids during the day.

“Best Kids Playground Ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

My 2 year old was in her element, there's so much for the kids to do here from the water activities, to climbing as well as the little kids section. A great free activity that will keep the kids very busy and provide so much fun.
