Nice coastal town
On the quiet side
don't hesitate if you're in the neighbourhood...
You might know this place from pictures. I saw pictures ages ago and always wanted to go there. It's as nice as on the pictures, it must be lovely when it's sunny. When we were there in December it was raining unfortunately. Even then it was crowded with tourists!!! Go around the island, up the hill and make sure you'll see everything. It's an...more

We all were due to meet up at my hotel lobby after work and a quick shower to have a group meal at a well rated restaurant. The others were...more
Watch the waves crash on the sea wall at the port. I spent many hours watching waves crash on this wall protecting the boats. There always seemed to be a storm coming in when I was there. Sometimes the waves would crash completely over this wall so protect your camera.more
