Small port with some authentic, colorful boats (not sure if they are still in use.). Close to the old center, and the Teatro Margarhita, which has a terrace overlooking the old port.

Nice and relaxing view. You can sit at a terrace to admire old or new boats. You can see a panoramic view of the harbour from the big wheel.
