There is a tourist information shop here and there are plenty of interesting tours you can go on. There are also a few good restaurants and the view is very good looking out onto the harbour at all the boats. Also a good massage lady.

In our stay, we rented a small boat for a day, we went around the bay, then we stopped at the little island in front of the bay. Lots of bird nests and beautiful nature. Pelicans are so funny. Great experience

Marina is losing something -- the shops are looking tired and not much interest to people getting off or on boats - More price friendly shops would be better
