Perhaps its name can be difficult to pronounce, but it is very enjoyable to visit, as it still provides the experience of being in a typical fishing village, highlighted by a marina with world-class infrastructure and space to accommodate up to 600 boats at a time. This micro-destination offers a relaxing alternative, with a good number of restaurants and a vibrant music scene.
