Enjoy the beach walk. Stop for a Capp or copa de vino. Have lunch. Or take snacks and refreshments for the sunset. No one else does so be a leader.

The locals are lucky to have such a nice and convenient beach area with close by parking. It had beautiful views and seemed like it would be quieter than most beaches.
