Parque Mediterráneo (Mediterranean Park) stretches from Pozuelo beach on the west to Cabria beach on the east.  It is a great nature path for a peaceful walk and a great place to let the kids run around.  There are small hills involved, so keep that in mind when you set out.  You can do a portion of the path or follow it up and down the entire way.  Discovering beaches, restaurants and beautiful views.  We will have an access map of the park at the bottom of this post.
