Lovely area to sit with a drink in sunny weather and have a laugh with staff at cafe after you have gotten presents to take home and before the beach walk to the hotel

This is a quaint old time fishing village that has now been transformed into a tourist destination. There are two escalators that take you down to beach level. The beach is beautiful! The streets are linked with souvenir shops and restaurants. Some of the restaurants offer good luncheon deals for a meal and a beer or wine or mixed drink. We have been back a couple of times as it is a really nice walk or stroll on the beach.

Our hotel is not in the old town but it is only a 20 minute walk down to the sea. We have several lunches at many spots each year we return. Dinners are enjoyed at Fresca or Doc Jarden. The square is a great place to people watch and a walk up to the higher level sea wall area has more delightful places for a drink or lunch.

Nice old town worth a visit for few hours: some interesting buildings, tourists shops, restaurants and coffee shop. Not the best place we have ever been but nice enough.
