The bars are mostly elevated providing spectacular views over the surrounding area.

Shopping

As a fairly small village famous for its natural beauty, it is not the kind of place where there are massive international outlets.

There are also several supermarkets selling the essentials, ensuring that guests can purchase everything they need during their stay.
