We used to come here all the time but I won’t be going back as my daughter got some very strange looks from the Gulf tourists who infest the town now. I didn’t feel safe. Terrible pity I used to love the place.

Went to the Cabrio bar at the bottom of the slope and the bill was €84 gave €100 and never got the change till I went to the owner. Prices are stupidly expensive here without being ripped off.

Finding a promenade so far from the sea came as a bit of a surprise - but it gave us a very pleasant afternoon stroll
