The Corso

Going to the beach; having a kebab for lunch, and an ice cream for dessert go hand in hand here in . Beach is the main beach, and is located right opposite The Corso. There is a smaller beach called Shelly Beach, yet it is still quite a popular beach to its largest neighbour.

A sweet shop in Wharf. Quite popular for some sweet treats for the ferry ride back to the quay.
