Shopping Centre
“Just a 10 minute drive away, sits Eden on the Bay, a small beachside shopping centre. It has some cute speciality shops to look around, as well as plenty of cafes and restaurants to grab some food or just a cocktail. Especially popular on weekends as the sun goes down, but a local favourite at all times. You can also hire surfing, kite surfing and SUP boards, or even take a lesson. The bay is protected from big waves so its a nice place for kids (of all ages!) to enjoy the water. ”
