  • nothing more to do with a real medina, many imported items, too "modern" to make true; if you have an hour to lose, has nothing cost or then the taxi is cheap to go

  • Scenic place, not very well maintained, and marred by the harassment of the vendors of the mini souk. Beautiful walk by the sea despite stout.

  • Lots of shops need to savvy with how the locals sell. Don't give in to them or feel bad just say no when it's a no. Don't buy out of guilt. Some of them have decent wares but their approach can put you off.
  • Worth a visit, but boy is it hard work. Avoid it if at all a timid kind of person. You'll be skint in no time
