This three-mile concrete promenade is always busy with bicyclists, strollers, diners and people-watchers. During the summer, three oceanfront stages offer nightly entertainment.

This beach is nice if you do not mind crowds. The beach is pretty clean, and there's volleyball nets. There is a lot of shopping around the beach and places to eat.
