We began our journey from Hilton Hotel at around 6:00pm on a Saturday evening, the atmosphere was tranquil and relaxed.

A great place to wander long and people watch or take a little boat to the other side for a meal or just a walk along the new boardwalk. At night there are stalls selling food and nick knacks.
