A very Hot day but loved the Views and sitting next to the ocean having lunch. Service on the island is a bit slow but food is always good. The fort is a 15 minute walk around...

This converted fort has some outstanding views and some really great restaurants but it is definitely for the tourist and cruisers. I would have a drink here or maybe a dinner after the ships leave but would not venture here while the cruise ships are in port as it gets too crowded. Come here at night and get a view... More

Full of tourists and cruise ship travelers. Expensive. Better off walking over the bridge to Punda for a taste of real local flavor!

Nice shopping area with souvenir shops, galleries, restaurants & bars. Multileveled area outside of the old fort with great views from the upper levels. There are a variety of restaurants-burgers, pizza, seafood, steaks. There was not a cruise ship in port when we visited so it was pretty calm. When we left in the evening, there was live music in...

Really enjoyed having a look round this area, lots of shops to look round, bars and restaurants. Especially liked the jewellery shops! There are some great views from the fort and it's really good to look over in the evening as the lights from the restaurants bring in the very big fish!!

Comes alive when a cruise ship is there, otherwise very very dead. Great restaurants but souvenir shops are very overpriced.
