It has very unusual and modern architecture with artificial islands that contain many apartments, so that people can live near their boats. The islands are connected with small bridges and this suggests a modern Venice.
The marina has 25 shops, 44 restaurants, and 19 discos and bars, and is famous for its nightlife. There are hotels close to it, so it is a very lively place for entertainment.
