Funny little place selling second hand books for holidays. Shelves for each language and I guess you can sell them back before you leave.

This small Library at the side of the cocktail bar has books for rent. Probably sells too. Good if you need something to read on the beach! Also has a passport copying facility if you need to carry a copy with you.
