As you arrive, it does look very inviting, as you look through the arch and on to the yachts, but then you realise there's not much to it. Just a few restaurants serving similar food, nice looking luxury yachts and being surrounded by tall, daunting...More

The marina has a good selection of restaurants to choose from, bit more expensive than standard restaurants but well worth it, lovely views over the marina, well worth a wander around the marina checking out the cruisers and yachts.

A luxury yacht marina along side the Hilton Hotel also offers a number of restaurants and eateries to choose from. Very safe and posh place to hang out in the evening or just to take a stroll. Very photogenic during the day as well.
