Well with Mrs Db nicely seated on Dorada beach, I thought I would try a power walk down to the Rubicon Palace and then walk back at a reasonable pace to give people an idea of the walk. I would also take times at various points along the route but would only take photos at only Hotel points during the power walk to keep the pace up.

There you are, I told you I would be back by one Mrs Db lol

I would say at this pace, the marina would be a further 8 minutes away but again bear in mind, this walk was faster than I would do with Mrs Db. I hope it gives you an approximate idea of times
