I quite like to stroll around this shopping mall with its jumble of small stores. There are good places to shop for shoes, sportswear, gifts, stationery, home electronics, and a lot more. On every visit there are one or two new stores that have popped...More

An okay shopping center, not a lot of nice clothing shops. Resturants are plenty and all offer a variety of food. A great place to eat, not shop.

Typical shopping mall, situated in a cluttered area. The jewel of the mall is Jimmy killer fish&chips. Delicious food and great service.

An eclectic set of activities/shops. Whereas the selection of small boutiques in the mall is not sufficiently diversified and offers a limited choice of products, the supermarket as well as the restaurants on the upper floor and more particularly on the large open ground floor...More

Small shopping mall with few stores. Not worth the time since theres nothing interesting to bring home. I bought some cloth from the salesman on the beach. The shopping mall had clean toilettes and security guards.

Not worth a visit, especially if you are a tourist, as there's nothing special about it, although it does have a decent supermarket (prices are a bit high though) - apparently the only shopping centre in town.. Not quite sure about the other shops in...More

Nothing special, the highlight is the Supermarket. You need time and patience to go shopping there. They work very slow, have all the time in the world. In the parking in front of the Shopping ma;ll, the locals pay fee to have their cars watched.
