Beautiful view of the sunset from here, but I was disappointed based on other reviews I read. No artisans or food set up when we were there. The walk there from El Morro is definitely a must.

it was shorter than i imagined but it was a nice walk that we took after el Morro's paseo. the pretty tourism center was a former prison so a stop there to check out old cells and the art work inside is a must if in this area.

I highly recommend doing the whole walk 3+ miles. but totally worth it. The views are spectacular, make sure to take water and sunscreen.

Charming promenade which begins at the port authority and ends at wonderful fountain/pier overlooking the channel into the ocean where the cruise ships sail. On weekends and holidays, local artisans set up booths with food, crafts, and beverages. Makes for a lovely afternoon or evening. Enjoy!
