Lovely views from the harbour. A dog friendly walk and beach leader to this with loads of people out walking and very clean.

If you are into ships and boats this is a nice place to spend a little time. Fresh and open and good views. Nice to walk round the harbour if nothing to do.

As ferries no longer use this port, the area is starting to deteriorate. With investment, it could be revitalised as has been the case with other ports. One good point is that the parking is free.

Nice little harbour housing a mixture of leisure and fishing boats. Nice place to park up and have some fish and chips and a little stroll, weather permiting.

What a truly fantastic and quiet place. If you want excellent restaurants, watch the sun set and tranquility you've come to the right place. This is not a kiss me quick hat venue and if you need cheap poor quality fast food I'd suggest you...More
