Several popular quayside inns and cafes overlook the calm waters, drawing both residents and tourists to drop by for an evening meal and a few drinks with friends, just as the sun sets over the harbor. Located just north of this area, a convenient visitor center offers various tourist services, information, and maps of the harbor and the surrounding region.
