Choose a cafe, get your drink, get your food, sit back and watch the world go by. This is where you'll find whale watching, diving and fishing trips.
Beautiful area and a great way to see how people from all around the world come to see this one location.
Nice marina, almost compulsory stop for sailors crossing the north Atlantic. Look for the tags/paintings left by the sailing boats, all over the marina.
Strangely, this busy attractive marina is also one of the most beautiful and calm places we have been. There are lots of painting to see and many trips to take (either the ferry to other islands, or whale watching, swimming with dolphins, diving , and a glass bottom boat).

Given the high trade from the boats the marina is distinctly lacking in decent restaurants and other facilities. The yatch club is a dirty building badly in need or refurbishment although it could be great.

Just one of the most beautiful and calm places! I totally recomend! The drawings are great, the sea is amazing blue and the peace of this place is wonderful! People seems to have a peaceful and calm life in this island
