It is even referred to in some circles as “the world’s luckiest fishing village” as fishing is one of its main attractions. This fantastic city offers visitors several exciting activities to do. Chill on its pristine beaches as you watch the kids build sandcastles, shop in one of its upscale boutiques, play golf at its lush golf courses, dine on delicious cuisines at the numerous world-class restaurants, or have a family day at one of the top theme parks in the city.
