What an amazing experience, fabulous views and tasty food. There was even a mobile cocktail bar bringing your choice of drinks to your table. And back to that view, amazing. Not a cheap brunch, but definitely one to do.More

The Marina
It’s hard to believe that only a decade ago there was
no marina. Opened in 2003, the man-made marina runs
along a 3km stretch of shoreline. A heady mix of
luxurious hotels, apartment buildings, and cafes, the
marina hosts regular community events and markets, and
is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon or
evening. Spectacular at night when the skyscrapers
glisten, here you can enjoy dinner on the beach next
