The esplanade is great for walking or biking. Cool sea breeze with views of the ocean, seating along the way. A must walk or ride for anyone wanting some exercise.

The Esplanade is fantastic, well kept . The gardens are a beautiful feature & love the big trees that give lots of shade.

The Esplanade is a fantastic paved track for all abilities. You can walk or ride as far as you want in any direction with plenty of (coffee) stops. Undoubtedly built for the mobility scooter it provides access to such a huge area for all.
