This area is a working fishing village. Many fisherman dock their boats in the harbour and bring in their catch on the harbor's large pier. The beach is more activity-filled, with children also playing on the short, sandy shores and sailing colorful Sunfish boats in the crystal clear harbor waters.
There are a many low-cost hotels in the area.
