Must see · Scenic Walking Area · Landmark
Take a gentle trip down The Corniche, an attractive stretch of manicured waterfront on the west side of the main island. Enjoy a swim at the public beach, or stroll along the 8 km (5 mi) public footpath, taking in the sights of the carefully designed coastline. Alternatively, consider exploring the area by bike--you can rent some wheels on site, with options including two- and three-seaters. The many children's play areas offer good diversions for little ones, and a solid set of restaurants and cafes lining the street gives you plenty of options for relaxing afterwards.
