Since 2017, there has been a temporary plan to renovate the entire island, and there is now a competition between several architect offices for what it will be. While we wait for what finally emerges, we recommend that you take the trip to the fine dining hall. Step inside all the food stalls before settling on one of the industrial benches, or relax in a sun lounger on the patio in the sunbath while enjoying the food.

There is a quiet village atmosphere in the area, as it differs from the rest of the city by being free of cars.
