It's not really a park but more like a waterfront promenade area. It's busy early evening with a food market and there are also some cafes open during the day.

The park is not imposing, but the nighttime open food market is an experience not to be missed. You can get better food elsewhere, but the prices appear to have come down over the years and the quality is good enough. Do not miss the sugarcane juice.

Good place to sample local (mostly barbecued) food and mingle with the locals. Do try freshly squeezed juice of sugarcane if you have a bit of a sweet tooth- you will not be disappointed. Be well aware though that some foodsellers might try to charge you ridiculously inflated prices, always agree on a price before deciding on a meal.

We expected a nice and fresh food next to the sea... The result was correct but the prices were totally nonsense... We had to negociate during 15 minutes to get a price which was more than twice than at the restaurant...
