Where are the Independence Gardens?

The gardens boast abundant greenery, walking paths and children’s playgrounds. Visitors can enjoy a pleasant walk through the gardens, which are open to the public all day long.

A place for cat lovers and children
The Independence Gardens are also home to many cats, who are well-taken care of by the locals. There is a shaded area full of hand-made cat shelters, food and blankets to make the friendly felines feel at home. As you go past the shaded benches overlooking the sea, you will also reach a children’s playground with lots of activities to keep young ones entertained.
A spot by the sea
Apart from being a beautiful area for walking and resting, you can also access the sea below the Independence Gardens. During the warmer season, you could enjoy a refreshing drink at one of the kiosks in the area, before going for a swim – just like the locals do!
