Maybe because harbours remind me of the time I used to row in the sea...walk around and just watch the boats and enjoy the completely calm water and the light air... This harbour is a little touristic and you will see small and huge yachts...More

The harbour is only a lovely 15 minute stroll from the Molina Lario Hotel through a gorgeous tropical garden that was planted around 1860. The harbour has a good selection of shops and some really good market stalls and lots of good restaurants. The harbour...More
