Loved meandering around the old port, full of shops and tapas bars and cafes and people of all sorts. Lots of street vendors who were not pushy. Some really beautiful yachts and sailboats.That it was a really beautiful day was just frosting on the cake.

U got Mere Magnum and it's a great to go shopping and have lunch there. It's open 365 days a year. Free concert events to attend.

It's definitely worth a little wander down by the waterfront for a bit of yacht-spotting but there isn't a huge amount to see or do. There are also lots of restaurants and bars, but mainly chain places. It's got more of a buzz in the daytime than in the evening though.

It is not very much to see. It is a modern construction with a large shopping center and various restaurants whith not so good food. There are several yachts parked there which makes a beautiful view. You also have several options to go for a tour with different types of boats.

Great setting and the area is worth a wonder around by the marina. Its a bit commercial and too indoors for the glossy facilities for us

Nice waterfront area that plays host to a shopping mall,multiple restaurants, the aquarium, and an Imax. Should your schedule allow the area makes for a laid back half day or so of tourism (but I wouldn't make it a priority for short visits).
