Living at The Pulse
The naming of this complex really does explain how this development sits within the neighbourhood and general area of the south side. Shopping Centre, Entertainment Venue, Dining Destination, Sports and Recreation. The location is in the heart of the bay and this complex is the pulse. For the residents who live here there is very little that you could need outside of this development to keep yourself busy, nourished, pampered, preened, groomed, entertained, fit, and healthy.
The Pulse opened in 2014 to much acclaim after months and months of residents lobbying to get much wanted amenities and facilities into the area within easy access of their beautiful bay. What transpired was the delivery of an amalgamation of beach side shopping and gourmet dining on a stretch of sandy waterfront promenade, with dazzling panoramic views right on the beach.
Inside you will find an assortment of services and outlets for gym, yoga, dry cleaning, hair salons, art galleries, and pet grooming.
