Front promenade and Chinese fishing net area were listed as a local tourist attraction and featured on many postcards but the shear volume of litter and rubbish on the beach and around the area detracted from the attraction. Chinese fishing nets and fish farms on the road further south were much better to see.

The Chinese fishing nets are interesting to watch being operated and some people even had a go at helping out. Not a lot to do other than that though.

Interesting spot! Lots of nets and traders close by. Some good sized fish on display but not sure if they came from the nets. We saw one lifting from the water but there was nothing but optimism in it.
