Just a nice relaxing place for a stroll around looking at the museum and impressive boats in the harbour. Has a slight 'disney' feel about it.

The Dock Yard Museum is a bit understated but VERY interesting. One should budget at least an hour to view the interesting historical exhibits.

One of the nicest areas of the island. Watch the beautiful boats, stop at the bakery, a little bit of souvenir shopping, visit the museum. A great day!

We were part of a tour group which explained a little about the area and how it came to be. The best part were the ships in the dock area getting worked on they were amazing to look at.
