Narrow paved and cobbled walkways lead to piazzas with restaurants bars and shops. The promenade provides a pleasant vantage point for viewing the colourful fishing and pleasure boats. The white powdery beach is located approximately 10 minutes outside the town. Even more picturesque beaches can be found at Bombarde Porte Conte and Lazzaretto.
