At 10 to 12 kilometers one way, it´s a little more intense than a stroll for ice cream, but you can spread it over two days, parking in the middle and checking out one side at a time. The "town" walk is a palm-lined promenade filled with people, bars, ice cream and waffle shops, and souvenir stands, including my favourite, handmade ceramic jewelry. There´s an amusement zone, complete with bumper cars and bumper boats, lots of restaurants, the marina, and the ferry terminal. Leave the shore, and you can walk for hours, shopping till you drop.

I like to walk each way at least once while we´re at the beach. It´s fun to be part of the hustle and bustle of town, and I usually can´t resist adding to my jewellery collection, but I also enjoy the wild quiet of Las Rotas. The crashing waves and strong sea air are reinvigurating, and on a fall or winter day, you can really sense the power of the sea.
