Having walked along the entire promanade, it was a lovely place to stop and relax and have a coffee and cake or beer and tapas. Wonderful views, so relaxing watching the beautiful, clear blue sea. Cant wait to go back to this beautiful area.

It is hard to characterise this as a tourist attraction, it's a city square. It is however nicely shaded, has some seating and is next to a busy bus stop, shops and places to eat. More of a place you pass through than visit, it is still better it is there than not.

Great central place for coffee and snacks. Enjoy a beer in the afternoon and get chatting to locals. Trees to shade you from the sun. Convivial, cheap and very cheerful!

A nice place to sit and 'people watch'.After all the shopping we needed a rest :) It is right in the middle of everything but still quiet.

I doubt I have sat in a more simple, yet beautiful square, you directly overlook a perfectly formed small bay, with dazzling blue water. You easily find shade under trees, sitting at simple tables, serviced by a green kiosk, that sometimes takes a while to serve you, but no rush, why would you wish to be anywhere else... The food...
