The atmosphere is great here, especially on the evenings. Each night there was a different scene, from singers, to dance acts. I recommend visiting!

The lovely views are beautiful from the end of the Balcony- with the sea, the old town and the mountains. There was a great group for pop, the brass band and lots of other entertainment. Restaurants are good too.
