Customer Travel Tip: Stay at Beachside Backpackers! And, have Fish & Chips from "Off the Hook" by the pier.

Liked: Very nice place. Very picturesque. The beaches are stunning, and there are some great walks around the city. Be sure to check out the huge nesting of bats off a little pathway by the city centre.

Disliked: Not very much to do, and I'd exhausted everything within a day and a half. Luckily it's a great place just to chill out.
