I was passing by here many times. It is a beautiful and busy bay with lots of fast-food chains, restaurants, bistros, ice-cream kiosks, busy bus stops, shops, etc. Dominant is the LOVE sign at the right corner of the bay. Make sure to take a picture over there ;-).

Beautiful little bay with some lovely restaurants. Well worth a visit. I also liked the look of the Hotel Juliani there, looked very nicely appointed and would consider staying there if we visit again.
