“Americanised but pleasant shopping complex, near the beach”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Americanised but pleasant shopping complex, near the beach. Has a good selection of arts and crafts and surfy type shops, as well as good sweet shops!
Casino best for slots, not as good for table games.
near a nice area of beach and pier walk.
Not very different but a pleasant spot for a hour or so.

“Such a lovely place”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

The boardwalk has it all. A casino, a beautiful fountain show in the evenings, restaurants - where Spur is my favourite eating place, fast food, amazing ice cream by one of the entrances, playing hall, and many small shops. I have been here several times, and only disappointment has been somewhat early closing times some days and that the fountain show did not happen due to technical issues when I brought my sister. Otherwise, perfect for fun or romance and also for families.

“Nice shopping, dining and entertainment”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

We went twice to the Boardwalk because we had bad weather and could not go to the beach. There is a lot to do and there are nice Shops in the Boardwalk. The Lightshow with Music in the fountain is beautiful and is showed several times in the evening (we were there on 2 saturdays). We also went to a really cool bar with great Music and Drinks.
