... state capital and has an international airport. As a result of this, there are flights arriving frequently from all over Europe and Asia. There are a lot of tourists with plenty of hotels and restaurants to accommodate them, and the beach is long, clean and has some great waves for the surfer types. It is not what I would say crowded with tourists, it has that magic number, enough people to make it interesting and not enough ...
