Little Venice   

Buildings are built right on the edge of the sea with the waves of sea kissing the balconies.  This island was once a Pirate island in the 16th or 17th century.  So this place was used for quick loading and unloading of goods. Now, these buildings are turned into antique bars, cafes, and restaurants. Lunch here is preferred for pretty views and to enjoy the sound of waves and winds.

The small shops sell a variety of products from cheap souvenirs to artwork, jewelry, and branded fashion items. The white-washed houses have terraces and brightly colored doors and windows.
