Hike the Dyke

Now that the new Botafoch dyke has finally opened it has quickly become one of the favourite strolls, or 'paseos' for the local population.

Now that the new Botafoch dyke has finally opened it has quickly become one of the favourite strolls, or 'paseos' for the local population.

With the sea on both sides, ocean liners moored up close by, ornamental lamps, benches, a kids' playground, and a bicycle lane, it could be thought that a walkers paradise had been created. But no, for the main complaint amongst those taking the air on the 1200 metre long structure (that's 2.5 kms there and back) was that there is not a single bar along its length to sip a cooling beer.

We predict boomtime for the bars in the Marina Botafoch sports harbour, serving thirsty strollers on their return from a marathon 'dyke hike'
