Much of the hillsides that surround the village are protected against development, therefore, the village will always keep its natural beauty and charm with quaint flower-decked houses lining the streets, and speciality fish restaurants at the waterfront which is where most of the villages visitors head for to sample the tasty fresh fish and seafood dishes.
