Parties, swimming, restaurants, shopping—there is not much missing from this extraordinary three-mile loop. Peaceful by day and vibrant at night, you could easily spend more than one day exploring this lively area. Early in the day, visitors can catch exotic birds feeding along the mudflats before people-watching takes over. As the vast man-made lagoon fills up with locals and fellow travelers, all simultaneously engaging in and appreciating the great coastal scenery, it begins to take on a life of its own. In the evening, there are live shows and night markets, not to mention the playgrounds and BBQ pits are open to enjoy at any time of day. This exciting hub is, unsurprisingly, lauded as the heart of the city.
