It's a little how you imagined it Grandy. I will attempt to describe it more.
There is a super wide concrete path that attaches to a car park on one side and there is a beach on the other side. Their is a high rail on the beach side. It's nice to lean on the rail and watch the waves. There is also a row of seats facing the ocean and some outside type beach showers.
I walk on this wide concrete path first past all that. Keep following this path, which starts to narrow a bit. The path is now lined with another rail on the left hand side. It's a beautiful rail. It's black and looks like a rail on an old ship. Except it is brand new. They built in last year. As you walk along and look over the black ship rail you see a smallish beach which often has dogs running in the water and digging holes. Sometimes I even stand leaning over this rail and watch the dogs having such fun. I like doing that. This beach borders the large port here. Many large cargo ships come through here. They are absolutely massive. I love hearing the sound of the ships horn as it sort of echoes throughout the air. Such a deep long mysterious sound. It's beautiful.
Anyways on the other side of the path opposite this beach is the sand dunes. I have walked over these before. Sometimes you can see glimpses of the ocean over the dunes. There is a bit of green vegatation growing on the dunes, but not a lot.
Keep walking along the path the doggie beach is now ended and tapers sort of into rocks. There has been a lot of drift wood and logs amongst the rocks before. From those storms whenever that was. Over from the rocks is the port itself. Its quite wide and there is land on the other side. It really is lovely walking along here especially early evening as the breeze that comes through here is often so fresh. On the other side is still sand dunes. But just up ahead is a hill, that I call Light House Hill. It is on the right. If you looked over to the left you still see the port. And the black ship railing. I have walked up that hill many times. There is a lighthouse on top, plus some renovated cottages ( which no one lives in, I don't think) From the top, the view is beautiful. You can see the ocean, and the rest of the path. It sticks out quite a way. If you turn around whilst up on that hill, you can see the city. And you can see the doggie beach. And you can see the path where you just walked from.
Once you walk back down Lighthouse Hill and turn right you can keep following the path along.
