if you are looking to see how local people live

Not a fancy tourist place. See how real local people live, buy food, have rest. good vegetables and fruits market is a must to visit.

This is where to go to meet the locals. A beer at the marina will cost you £8, here it is £1.50 and you can watch the world go by
