Princess Street is a quaint street predominantly catering to tourists. Cafe's, hotels and handicraft shops galore. There is some nice architecture to be seen. Its a nice way to spend the afternoon if the weather is nice. Bargain hard at the stores.

Most of these homes allow visitors... More

good atmosphere. Can spend time with your family and kids here. Near to beach. Good hotels are there nearby which serves quality food with recent price. You will get cycles for rent. You can use that to explore more. Childrens park's there. Many shopping options as well.
