I bought a custom-made hand-selected black pearl earrings and necklace from here. The ladies here will help you to select from a variety of pearls they have in store. A great souvenir to take home!

We stopped by for a coffee. The coffee, cakes and snacks were great. Best of all was the Vinyl Revival Club. A record player and loads of excellent LPs to listen to while you ate. Wonderful place! The cafe owners run revival discos, locally.

The beachcomber is a large pearl shop/market. For me it is a unique buying experience. I like the fact that you can buy the exact pearl that speaks to you whether flashy and expensive and more economical and unique. The next step is to pick...More
