Great strolling, walking boardwalk. Lots of benches along the way to sit and people watch or enjoy the sounds of the waves off the ocean. Pet friendly and offers a Separate pathway for bikes. This is the beat boardwalk I've experienced!

We have been here a few days and love the boardwalk. It is maintained and clean. It's nice the bikes have their own separate parallel lanes. It is well lit at night and has something for everyone. Lots of music and just hanging out.
