Great walk towards the breakwater. Over a mile of great views and terrific kite surfers. This walk links up with the cycle track so you can have a rest on the beach on the entrance to the harbour area.

A really lovely walk along the boardwalk, with lots of interesting flora but for some reason sparse fauna. Spotted larks, ibis, a hare and a stag beetle.

Everyday my husband and I have walked the boardwalk! You can get into town or keep going until you reach the end. We saw a number of people running, cycling and power walking their way down the walk. It is good exercise and some lovely sites and scenes to boot xx

this was a lovely way to walk along the beach, especially when the sand got too hot, being raised you also had lovely views looking along the beach

Beautiful new boardwalk. Wheelchair access. If you don't want to walk on sand the board walk is a great way to go along the beach with a higher view. Still building the boardwalk to continue on the beach front. Work in progress.

Great way to view the coastline and river area. Built for all abilities to access. Construction to stretch further east with new cafes was underway during our visit. Early Mornings and evenings around sunset best time to go.
