The street that faces the sea at Portobello that is called the Promenade on the city maps (Google Maps link) is reached from the end of Kings Road, turn left.

But if, at the end of Kings Road, you turn right, there is a broad, quiet, pedestrian-only pathway (bikes allowed) along which you can walk, with the sea on your left and houses and chip shops and a swimming pool (and amusement parks!) on your right, as far along as where Coillesdene Drive meets the Joppa Road.

There are places for children to play:
