          Our first impression of the town was poor, and it has not changed much! Our accomodation did not impress us at first until we saw some of the other places! At least it ...

I was quite hungry by the time she got up at 8:45 so we made our way to the outdoor dining room and enjoyed some fruit, bacon and a cheese, ham and bell pepper omelette made to order. I'd like to say that the next eight hours of our day ...

The beach and surrounding area was more developed than anyone would have thought - it even had a marina, proper gravel road and people driving around in golf carts. The beach was not good for swimming at this time of the year due to high waves, but it was nice enough for a bit of relaxation on the sand with a book.
