Very busy later at night and the weekend. Lots of steps and lots of bars and clubs. Keep looking down and can be dangerous and dirty. It would help if others would ignore their phones while going up and down but how do you change a culture!.

This, for some reason, seems to be a popular place to hang out, but it is just a set of steps with bars and restaurants. There are nicer places round the bay.

In the heart of Paceville - lots of restaurants, pubs and other entertainment. OK for families during the day. Be aware of the many "Gentlemens Clubs" which are open by night. Popular location for the younger set.

Definitely worth a look while in the area or if you are staying at one of the nearby resorts. There are steps with businesses at both sides ranging from restaurants, bars and gentleman's clubs. It can be a bit rowdy and congested, but interesting to see and exciting.

Part of the party district of Paceville. The area is in dire need of renovation or at least a good clean. But for those who are young, drunk etc, in the middle of the night it is the ' happening place '.

Narrow, crowded and badly light. Nightclubs and loud bars line the steps where staff jostle you trying to tempt you to their establishment.
