Across the road from Hilton is a brand new World Gym, which is perfect for travellers who like to visit iconic workout places. Just a stones throw (if you have a good arm it is) is the beach where you can enjoy the fresh air and a spectacular sunrise run. Nearby are 2 x supermarkets if you need to stock up on clean food, and there’s plenty of nearby options for healthy meal choices.
What we like: The beach. Morning walks and runs along the beach are unbeatable, even better here because you catch the sunrise over the ocean.
Also, 2 well equipped gyms is a wonderful but rare feature – thanks Hilton!
