The itinerary follows the promenade, running on top of the dune strip. The dune is formed by a narrow sand strip between the sea and the four coastal lakes, with a characteristic half-moon shape. Its vegetation is dominated by prickly juniper, myrtle, and lentisk forming low, compact, and entangled pads, sometimes impenetrable, to protect themselves from the fury of the wind and the salt it carries.
