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.

The contents of the magazine are very interesting, because they provide relevant information about activities in the destination. I am pleased to see it at hotels, restaurants and galleries, but what excites me the most is to see people with their issue in hand. That is really relevant for us”.
