The rating of this beach walk (3) Fair
Definitely a great walk from start to end. The start of this walk which of course is the end is at the very picturesque "LOS GALLOS ROCKS" where swimming here is quite nice. Easy walking every step of the way along very firm sea sand hereby making your sea walk very comfortable throughout. What is nice is that if the sun is very hot along the way, you can take a dip in the Gulf.
The walk from start to the end is 2 miles and when we eventually reach at Icacos, there is a great little bay on the Columbus Channel where we will chill a bit before we embark our walk back to Columbus Bay. It is strongly recommended that you bring along your food, snacks, juices, waters with you on this walk and you bring extra snacks and food with you to be left in your vehicle. I will provide a cooler with ices to keep your extra waters and juices nice and cold upon the conclusion of your walk.
