  • Yawn. Ghost tour was more talking than moving. 2.5 hrs to go in like 6 buildings. Host/ guide kept attempting to make it spooky by closing doors and standing in dark corners. If you are at least going to attempt to fake up some 👻 then use a little technology. Motion sensors, switches etc.
  • Nice free museum with information about Q Station. Nice little public beach - small, but quiet. Pretty views.
  • Accommodation looks nice. Free small museum with information. There is a bike hire station but price is quite expensive.
  • Great for a night out! Spookey
  • Best for accomodation and very nice view to city with cozy breeze
