Fabulous location. Even a delightful cafe. Lots to see and explore if you enjoy being outside and exploring the local Wildlife. We had a fabulous couple of hours here.

This was a must for me, having seen the containers on the road and rail;; so lets see how they come into the Country. Large ships, big cranes and lots and lots of coloured containers. Yes and interesting visit, with a little café on site.

Well worth a visit to watch all the large container boats coming in and departing the port. There is also a foot Ferry to catch during the summer, and a cafe for a cuppa!!

Worth experiencing this really incredible place. It's huge with ship so large when full they defy logic and look like they should sink....... Take a walk up the beach to see large ships effortlessly ploughing threw the waves, whilst to your left is Langaurd fort and a nature reserve.
