Was here for the World Food Championships 2017. This is a great spot for this event. When you have spare time there are nice places to dine, chat, have happy hour and shop!

Lots of shops, marina, restaurants. Huge ferris wheel. Very good for families. November seems to be off season. Miniature golf and adventure course was closed. Still, very nice area.

There are areas to park your motor home beside the cinema as well as farther out from the shops, not a far walk at all. There are campgrounds very close to the Wharf both on and off the beach for overnight stays.
