Another famous spot is Calypso, which offers a deck with views over the water as well as private thatched huts in a garden, with a menu of fish, paninis, an African dish of the day and even a full English breakfast.


Sea Shells
Sea Shells might not have the most glamorous location by a highway, but the food is worth it. Dishes include coconut-dusted prawns, beef Wellington and curried chicken salad.
