I was a little skeptical initially of eating from the vendors at the market along the waterfront on a Sunday evening. I soon changed my mind. The aromas of spices, fresh pizzas, rotis, seafood was too tantalising not to try. I can highly recommend that...More

Definitely a cultural and sensory delight, especially for seafood and fish lovers. The array of succulent choice of food on the tables is amazing, the atmosphere alone well worth the stroll along the waters edge in the evening to check it out.

You can not avoid this experience. On the waterfront, near a squarre or groups can play, share a moment of conviviality with people around typical drinks and street food. Very cool, colorful and fragrant!
