Quiet Place. Nice snorkeling, nice marina. Not so much shopping, but there where a few nice restaurants where you could have a drink or a dinner and have free wifi.

There are some very good restaurants here, but it isnt cheap to get to from the hotel. Due to ridiculous taxi prices.

We didn't have much time to explore this new shopping center as we went there incidentally to boarding a submarine trip, which was very good by the way. Not worth a special trip, but worth walking around if you happen to be staying in Port Ghalib area. The architecture was very nice.

The title says it all. It's a newly build small "city" consisting of shops and restaurants/bars all around an harbor. It's goal is to have a change of scenery for the surrounding hotels. Only worth a visit when you want to have a drink/food outside of your hotel.
