Rooftop review roundup: What a fabulous addition to the coast line’s rooftops sea and city views. Stunning rooftop. Small pool, bar area and actual resturant (and they have even identified the best spot for that all important snap with a selfie spot! And boy were they right. The only possible downside is the location. It’s a good half hour / 45 min walk from the old town back towards the airport. Though to walk along the promenade on a sunny winter day was certainly not the worse way I’ve spent a Saturday! And there’s a tram that runs really close behind it back if your plane to waddle of your lunch is being beaten by the early sunset in the winter! Definitely going on my must go back list.

Rooftop review: Its set back from the sea front which means it’s one of the rare rooftops that has a view that suits everyone! There is a causal bar one side and more formal dining the other. It’s one to watch the world go by and chat into the night with all city lights around you.

Rooftop review: This is one of my favs. Food is fabulous, the sea view stretches for miles and you really could just spend entire days sitting here. The sunset of course is spectacular and worth a trip up for just that.

Rooftop review roundup: As the name suggests – a splendid little find. What I loved most was being able to have a morning coffee with such incredible views. Staff are kind and friendly and service with a smile. The indoor part isn’t that fancy so I would really recommend it for the rooftop – and there’s levels to it! One with a small pool & jacuzzi, one with dining and one small square for uninterrupted 360 degree views. As we were staying so close it became our go to first coffee and our night cap regular.
