Loads of cafes and restaurants. And music, browse the marina and admire the boats. Fortunately we did not get booked because we parked many times not knowing there were Ticket Machines for parking.

It is not a big place, just a few restaurants and some shops. Nice views though and good place for a pleasant lunch on a seashore. Gets a bit noisy in the evening with not much interesting happening.

Too touristy, with ticket parking. Some of the restaurants don't look like they are clean places to eat!

During summer school holidays the Marina is a buzz of activity and for the weeks from Xmas to the middle of January can be hectic. Young children with their tired parents in tow abound. The Marina side cafés are all reasonable with good fare.
All manner of boating type activities abound to suit from the faint hearted to truly adventurous.
During the day and early evening The Corny Clown is a Bay institution and is there daily as he has been for over a decade entertaining kids with balloon animals and bumbling juggling antics. "Who wants to see me hurt and burn myself?" is his regular catch cry. And he never fails to delight the little kids and amuse the adults. Last time we were here his piece de resistance was to ride his unicycle in to the Marina harbour. I think the kids almost wet themselves laughing as much as the sodden clown.
Don't forget to get yourself a temporary tattoo from the lovely ladies based under the stairs.
The bungy trampolines are there all year and fun for kids of all ages.
The knick knacks abound and are reasonably priced and the fashion stores are worth a visit.
A couple if small bouncing castles there in the summer months for good measure.
Our kids are 10 & 14 and probably enjoyed thus visit more than 6 years ago.
