The small fishing village of Stanley is a popular day trip for tourists looking to escape the city. It's home to a number of attractions and diversions, such as several scenic temples and museums. The famous Stanley Market is a winding maze of stalls selling souvenirs like t-shirts, keychains and cheap goods, while bars and restaurants along the waterfront pair great food with great views. Stanley is also popular for its beaches. Stanley Main Beach is a pleasant sandy beach but can get crowded on weekends. It's good for windsurfing and hosting dragon boat races each summer. St Stephens Beach, on the western side of the peninsula, is more secluded but just as popular.
