Paddle a lap of one of the numerous islands and stop off for a coffee any one of the amazing cafes near the waterfront.

The calm waters here create ease of SUP'ing (stand up paddling) and are super fun to explore.

Stand up paddle boarding is fun, exciting and also very relaxing. As a fitness regime SUP (stand up paddle) is becoming more popular as paddlers find it is a calorie burner even if you are leisurely meandering on the water. Try to do a yoga pose but be prepared to get wet!
