It's DAMN hot. It's got lots of trashy wares to buy. It has lots of the usual event food trucks. You can't swim at the beach. Meh.

Loved this place, great little shopping stalls and an amazing variety of food... I could have kept eating all night, I had the best Indian curry. People were chilled and I can't wait to return. ✌️

Called in for a quick look around. Not very big, but what they have there is excellent. You could easily spend 2-3 hours there if you plan to eat. So many options. Well worth the effort.

All kinds of food here. Grab something, head to the beach and eat while the sun sets. Shop handicrafts after dark. Parking is difficult, so either come early or plan on some walking from your car.

The markets are closed during the wet season which starts in early October so they will definitely be closed in November
Could someone please advise what time the markets start in the afternoon. Thank you.
