“its a lighthouse and its locked ..”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2012

Look there are shops and bars all around here, but this is a review of a lighthouse, which you cant go up or in, its locked !
Even the light has been replaced with one that flashed every 20 seconds or so, it doesnt revolve it just flashes.

As I said there are shops and bars and a taxi rank, but if its a review of the lighthouse you want then its poor .......................

“A nice promenade”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2012

This promenade is very new. You will fond a lot of restaurants, bars and very nice shops (jewelry, perfume, cloths, all A+ brands).
Be aware of people who try to sell you tickets or want to seduice you for time sharing projects. Just ignore them or speak your local dialect they don't understand. The day after they don't bother you again :)
