    • Fabulous 4.4

      A very nice small town with lots of good restauran
      Easy to get an overview as it is a small town. Many good restaurants with lots of nice food, especially the sea-food was very good. Beautiful landscape with the high mountains and the clear sea so close.
      Very much people/tourists everywhere, as it was high season when we were there. Especially crowded at the beach close to the town centre. We found a more quiet beach a bit outside the town centre, that was very nice :)
