This shows it off well, Tom...a very interesting scene.
Tom Wilson: Yes, you can see that it is a walkway down to the high tide mark of the beach, and the little "oasis" is rather nice smile

C'est joli cette petite oasis au milieu de la plage.
Tom Wilson: Oui, c'est tres joli!
this is such an interesting set of boardwalks Tom... the sand must be very hot on that beach....petersmile
Tom Wilson: I imagine it warms up significantly at the height of the season - however, it is the Atlantic, so I don't think it will be TOO hot smile
wow, cool shot ... puts the previous one in context. A regular Oasis.
Tom Wilson: From my hotel balcony smile
I love that little oasis in the middle of nowhere Tom!
Tom Wilson: Nice, isn't it?

They are getting very organised here Tom
Tom Wilson: They are indeed - all, much needed work for the area.
What does it all mean?
Tom Wilson: It's all part of the strategic plan for the development of FdaF: http://www.cm-figfoz.pt/images/municipio/relacoes_institucionais/2014_Plano_Estrategico_FFoz_Final.pdf The part relating to the beach is spelled out in one of the bids - I don't know if the company got the contract: http://www.archdaily.com/239147/re-qualification-and-redevelopment-of-the-beach-and-seafront-of-figueira-da-foz-and-buarcos-proposal-labor4plus
I guess the tide goes out just like it does around Hunstanton and the Lincolnshire coast.
Tom Wilson: Indeed - I think high tide comes to where the walkway ends - so there's about 16 acres of beach to develop in various ways.
That is some beach!
Tom Wilson: About 16 acres all in, Bill.
