  • Beautiful day and view of the port. From fishing boats to fine yachts, it is a nice stroll. Clean and safe for visitors. Enjoy the fresh fish market and watch the vendor clean and sell fish.  more »
  • We don't have a yacht but we saw quite the assortment here. The area attracts millions of visitors during the summer and many can afford a yacht. It's a great view for the rest of us.  more »
