Good spot to get your bearings! Really pretty area with plenty of picturesque photo opportunities. Sandy beach on one side and Rock the other. Lots of places to eat around here at reasonable prices. There are also supermarkets and other shops too.

Love walking along the promenade & looking at the shops. Cafes & restaurants to suit all tastes & we have never been disappointed yet. There's even a casino & more shops on the other side of the galleria.

Shops and restaurants here are upmarket and it's a great place for early morning power walking/ jogging/ yoga/ tai chi. It feels very safe and is exceptionally clean.
