On land discover the art galleries, independently owned cafes, varied museums, or just sit and relax in the abundant sunshine and recharge your batteries. Then celebrate the setting of the sun each night, at any time of year, by enjoying a cocktail or two, the local live music, authentic diverse cuisine, and lively atmosphere.
