A walk along the promenade is always such fun for the young through to the elderly. Let your children play and wander along the beach while you watch them and stroll along the promeande. There are always other people walking or running for both fun and fitness. The best times to go are early morning as well as early evening when you will be blessed with one of Africa's beautiful sunrises or sunsets and may even catch a glimpse of the local school of dolphins.
