one good place to fish or buy food

we love fishing and we choose this place to go honeymooning, the place is tranquil and there is not too much people, so you have kms of beaches to yourself.

Great resort with wonderful beaches, restaurants, night life and whatever you wish. Nice place to warm up in the cold northern winters as in the south it is summer. Very trendy and upscale, it is always a pleasure to visit PDP.

Along the harbour of PdE there is a nice boardwalk on the sand dunes until the docks, where artisan fishermen prepare and sell their catch. Nice boardwalk - might even yield the sight of sea lions near the fishermen, but the water unfortunately is not so clean...

The docks is very well organized and structured. There isn't much to see there, but it is a good place for a walk by the docks and have lunch.

For those wanting to visita (from the outside), luxurious homes and places, then city tour is a great option for you. Otherwise you might just visit the fingers and walk around the beaches which are by the way very clean and well kept.

Easy to reach from the center of town, easy to find is you are elsewhere, the port is a must! You can stroll along the boardwalk, watch the yachts, observe the small fishing ships, buy some really fresh fish, eat some seafood, savour an icecream, let the children run around, or sit at the pier to watch the sun set......
