  • Excellent facilities which seem to be the hub of activity in the CBD area. The life guards are on duty well into the evening which was great as the heat stops most heading out during the middle of the day. The lighting at night is spectacular and well worth the visit in the evening if your looking for a photo opportunity.
  • What a place to hangout. Its public salt water kids pool, the area is so lively with people are singing live or playing something, BBQs, people on outing, picnic with family or friends. The place is in the heart of city with many eating joints on the other side of the road, shopping area, Lots of attractions are also walking distance. Move little bit ahead, you have beautiful parks with kids play equipment, sports infrastructure along the ocean a perfect place to work out in open gym or a 2.5 km wooden pathway along the ocean. It's a scenic place and ideal to stay in near by hotel
