Really nice view over the beach and sea. A little too much traffic to let the kids run loose, but there is some space to sit and a place that sells ice cream on the other side of the street.

Very nice view from the top, if you pass by there make sure to take photos. Enjoy walking along it .

The view from here is very pretty. Worth a visit but not worth a stay in my opinion. If you want a loud, crowded beach area, then this is the place. If you are looking for relaxation, warm waters, quiet place then go somewhere else.

This is a beautiful viewing point with the novelty of escalators close by for the descent into Old Town and the beach. It’s mostly pedestrianised too which adds to its natural beauty. Well maintained and clean area.

A nice place to catch a taxi, tuk tuk or the little train. Down the escalator to the town for a spot of dinner.

On our walk we stopped at the viewpoint what a stunning view you get, you can sit under the shade and watch the world go by, or stand and watch the goings on on the beach, the people on the segways etc. Lovely spot you...More
