Plenty of attended parking at ZAR50 per 1/2 hr. Square surrounded by shops and eateries and a mass of local souvenier stalls all selling wooden trinkets and beaded dolls. Wonderful atmosphere and a fun place to stroll.

This square is great to have a stroll through. A few vendors selling bits and pieces; interesting activity in the harbour and a few statues along the way. Not mind blowing but perfect if you’re enjoying a coffee or an ice cream.
