The Marina
It’s hard to believe that only a decade ago there was
no marina. Opened in 2003, the man-made marina runs
along a 3km stretch of shoreline. A heady mix of
luxurious hotels, apartment buildings, and cafes, the
marina hosts regular community events and markets, and
is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon or
evening. Spectacular at night when the skyscrapers
glisten, here you can enjoy dinner on the beach next

There is no dress code as such, but if you are planning to eat outside the restaurant overlooking the Marina, then I would suggest casual jeans - as it can be breezy. Enjoy!
