Enjoyed walking the famous golden mile. Lovely scenery. Others were jogging or riding bicycles. There are also companies who hire bicycles. Also plenty of hawkers selling souvenirs.

Perhaps at one time this was the place to be. But not now. Tourist avoid this place - there are more exciting and safer beach side locals to visit

I agree with the two responses already sent, that the best way is by taking a taxi. There is also parking available to leave your car while on a cruise. Trust this will assist.
