The Marina
It’s hard to believe that only a decade ago there was
no marina. Opened in 2003, the man-made marina runs

luxurious hotels, apartment buildings, and cafes, the
marina hosts regular community events and markets, and
is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon or

glisten, here you can enjoy dinner on the beach next
