Not much to do in winter but you can still have a good walk along the beach and the view is good. Some shops near the beach are closed during low season

We strolled along the beach and watched how the waves rolled. There is an aquarium nearby which is popular for families with kids. We crossed a small bridge which led us up to the top of hill. We really appreciated its natural beauty. Highly recommend.
