  • We walk along the seafront. The market is arranged in two parts, in the first one is rather handicrafts (many objects from Madagascar), clothes and in the second part are presented a wide variety of fruits and vegetables.

  • Weekly market on Fridays and Saturday mornings where you can shop for fresh fruit and veg, crafts and ready-to-eat foods. Recommend the sweet pork, fresh strawberries and hot samoosas as a great snack while you walk around.
