If you continue along the beachfront walkway past the lollipop beacon onto the boardwalk it feels like the coastline suddenly transforms. You feel just that little bit further away from the city. I did it during the week early one morning and there wasn’t another soul around until I encountered another walker on the way back to my car, but if you feel wary doing it when it’s this quiet, do it on a Saturday morning when there are more walkers about. It’s really worth it.
