The walk along the Promenade is a good walk. It is nice and clean with a few benches along its length. There are a few cafés too where you can stop and people watch

The beach at Carboneras is a lovely place to visit and it stretches quite a long way, there are several palm trees growing on the beach as well as a Petanca or Boule club, no doubt for the older local residents. Behind the beach there...More
