Very pleasant and beautiful place. We can stroll along the harbor and walk around the sea wall to get to the lighthouse, very beautiful especially in sunset time.

very relaxing place while waiting to see the sunset, stores around to buy their own handcrafted products and intersting piece of art

Difficult to take a bad photo of this magnificent place. The old harbour waterfront is surrounded by restaurants, cafes, bars and shops. Just off the water in the back streets are some more beautiful and very good eateries. Definitely worth an extended visit.

Amazing place. The horse and carriage ride around the harbour and streets is well worth it. It's just beautiful and lots of quirky shops and restaurants. A brilliant place for photographers as there is so much to see. Stunning!

Very nice view. Make sure you wear something comfortable for walking, especially if you want to go on the wall to the lighthouse.
