What a great location for Whale watching, we saw one playing right in front of us whilst sipping on a beer. Cheap drinks is what it says on the tin and doesn't try to pretend it's something it's not it's cheap $5 wines with a great view good for a drink after you have checked in your bags and are waiting for your flight as just across the road from the airport

Great spot overlooking the ocean, but we went on a Friday early evening and there were busloads of partiers being dropped off here- not too relaxing so we left.

Friday night parties are big at the Hula Bar. The Tiki Bar & Waterfront Restaurant 5m away is very relaxing.

We called in to this wee oasis on a walk around the town. We were warmly welcomed and despite setting up for a big group for lunch we were able to sit outside , under an umbrella and enjoy the lagoon view- beautiful. Nice atmosphere and a great set up for the guests. Just lovely.
