The Old Port

Head in to The Old Port to enjoy a taste of the local culture and history. With daily fishing markets, cobbled streets and original sablé coloured houses, the old port has an incredible charm and atmosphere. Many visitors will stop for a drink along the quay in one of the chic restaurants and bars. From here, you can marvel at the yachts coming into the port and maybe even spot a celeb or too!
