As in all coastal locations, the boardwalk is the main meeting place for tourists and residents. Obviously, running along the beach of Islantilla, the Mall is at the heart of it which, apart from clothing and grocery stores, has many restaurants, cafes and pubs. The Islantilla promenade is 1.5 km long, and has a wooden footpath which connects it to Isla Cristina, where you can visit the beaches which are among the pines that are dotted along this coast. You can walk about 15-20 km along the coast. Along this walk you'll find several bars, stalls selling imitation clothes, typical "top manta" selling movies or music CDs, hippies ... There's also watchtowers and lifeguards. In front of the Mall is a playground. At the end of the walk is the Restaurante Neptune which has excellent views and is where you can taste the area's typical food.
