"Su paseo marítimo" is correct. You could write sentences like "Liverpool es una ciudad muy interesante, y su paseo marítimo es único".

Yes, you can, if you want to say that Liverpool is unique, and so is its waterfront. If you want to say that Liverpool's waterfront is unique, then you better say "El paseo marítimo de Liverpool es único".


But if I want to say it's waterfront is unique or whatever

If you were sure that the antecedents could be understood from the context of the first two sentences, I think you could say just seems like it should be something indefinite or abstract. Su is too mundane.

Hi quentin, ¿qué has querido decir con esto?

lo de él es maravilloso'?

Esta frase no se entiende.
