An excellent beach with a bar and restaurant within easy walking distance. Crystal clear water with lots of sand and sun. Go there to forget about it all and soak in the sun.

A very unique destination. A quick ferry ride gets you to a separate paradise. Eat swim snorkel its all there. Live entertainment good food great for your whole family. Food service is slow, so it gives you time to check out other things.

Well, you can park at Strand Street, or take your chances parking on the side streets. The fort only allows 2 hour parking. We rented a car for 3 days, 2 nights of trying to find parking was a hazzle.
