breathtaking views of the lighthouse and beach. Lots of pubs and restaurants, fine wine. Close to Gateway and La Lucia mall where one can buy lovely things. Did not dislike anything, am used to Africa.

Visited the Beach after 3 1/2 years and was pleasantly surprised, clean beach, improved parking and beach access, visible life guards as well as cleaner sea.Some construction work still continuing but overall great improvement.
