Nice to see this place when is the bassa marea all bouts are out from the sea. The place offers you many bars, restaurants. The best bar for me is La minoca. Nice place to walk

Quite a nice stroll not too far away from the main shopping area, true there were one or two buildings that needed a lick of paint (or two) but nevertheless a very pleasant walk with plenty of restaurants should you be in need of refreshments.

This excellent walking facility will suit wheelchairs, buggies and cyclists, with excellent views of the port, fishing boats and locals as they go about their business. Perfect spot to watch the world go by !

I arrived at this place by accident when I was out for a walk. The area is surrounded by bars and resaurants yet very picturesque. It is very peaceful and you could just sit here and watch the world go by.

I concur with the last poster. There may well be apartments adjacent to the harbour, so I suggest you contact the tourist board in Arrecife and I am sure they will be able to give you a definitive answer. Regards... More
