Coastal walks can be both relaxing and exhilarating. As well as the abundance of fresh fish and seafood on restaurant menus, the big attraction of a coastal walk is the chance to kick off your boots and feel the sand between your toes, and of course cool off with a refreshing dip after an exhausting day of walking.
