Great place to hang around and admire the view of the bay. Its a boardwalk which has a great view. It also has restaurants and bars. Few mins walking distance to the beach.

Enjoy this seaside boardwalk ; feed the tarpon or the pelicans. Eat great fresh fish at one of the nicer restaurants or pick up some great fritturas, have a cold beer or some fresh fruit juice. Watch the padded boarders or join them!

It's so blue, so fresh, so open. Open surrounding with wood floors and you can even take boat trips on Sundays! Restaurants available, and at night is breath taking. You have to come by!

During the day on weekdays most if the for stands are closed. During the night, is better but security is a concern. Too many panhandlers And place could be a little but cleaner.
