It’s a Marina! Not much else to Say about it really, plenty of boats moored up and people fishing, it’s a nice little walk. There are some restaurant takeouts there and an ice cream shop with some many flavours to choose from.

A lovely place for a walk, with the highlight the fish feeding at 10am. Swarms of fish in crystal clear water were interesting to watch, whilst pelicans flew overhead. Some lovely little boutique shops and restaurants along the promenade whilst 4 hour parking close by...More
