Our bus tour of the area was also very good, and we had an excellent guide.
Just so you know, there is also a fort right outside the pier. We didn't get a chance to go there, but it looked like an interesting place to explore.
Be sure to check out the view on the port (left) side going in or leaving the cove for a great sighting of the famous rock arc.
Then we headed farther out into the country where our guide pointed out things like cashews and bananas growing, and told us about the culture. He also passed items like cashew fruit with the nut attached and banana blossoms around the bus for us to see. I don't know if all guides do this, but it made for a very interesting ride and a wealth of local information.
We ended up at the end of the pier at a small local market. The prices were very good, and we bought a carved wooden box and a few other things for family back home.
Note: The pier is very long, and I figured I'd be exhausted by the time I reached the end. Happily, they drive the tour buses up to the ship, and also run shuttle carts back and forth along the pier, so at the end of an exhausting day, you get to ride back to the ship.
