And that is not all. When it comes to seaside activities, this place has everything. Nautical clubs, dotted everywhere along the coast, are on hand to welcome you and introduce you to a rich tapestry of activities for children as well as grown-ups.Games on the beach, underwater adventures or discovering the coastal environment, the choices are endless.
