Promenade of Alicante

Promenade in the Spanish resort town of Alicante is considered to be a pedestrian Boulevard Esplanada (Explanada de España) Paseo Marítimo. However, this belief does not agree.

Explain why:

by definition, the promenade - this building, bordering the coastline of the sea or of a river embankment also serves as a convenient passage and travel along the shore, for mooring ships directly to areas of land, to facilitate the transfer of cargo and transport passengers from shore to ship and back. And in Alicante from the Boulevard of the Esplanade to the sea have yet to overcome the carriageway and the transition zone, which stretches along the coastline. This pedestrian zone on the right and can be considered a promenade of Alicante.

Alicante promenade stretches from the favorite vacation spot of all tourists and locals of Playa del Postiguet (Postiguet Playa de la) and runs towards the sea port of Alicante.

Let's start with the Postiguet beach. Along the beach, at the beach, the promenade tiled three-dimensional images. Which side do not look at the tile, they look like pyramids, spread up your arms or a plurality of three-dimensional cube-Rubik.
