    Hi, we're looking at this hotel for the end of September. Is there anywhere/anything interesting near the hotel, within walking distance? How far is it to town? Thanks in advance

    Not much around, a few tourist type shops and restaurants. You can get a bus into town but would really recommend car hire

    It's pebbles so you can benefit from beach/swim shoes. Small price to pay for an amazing place.
