A small holiday town centred on an island now connected to the mainland by a causeway. The walls that once surrounded the old town have long gone, bar the gate through which one enters the main square.
The square provides an excellent place for various events through the summer but is a bit over restored for my taste. Take a wander through the alleyways where the better restaurants are hidden away (there are supposedly over 50 in total in town) and where you can get a better feel of what life here must once have been like.
Back on the mainland, there are a couple of beaches within walking distance and all the facilities you would expect of a small town including supermarkets, a bakery, butchers, bank with ATM and a post office.
